Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson

Whole and Healing book.

Oh I loved this book. I won't say much about it becasue I don't want to give away the ending which I cried through.

A young boy in a disfunctional family learns a lot of lessons on being a friend, big brother and becoming a man. A girl changes his perspective on life and inspires him with imagination and friendship that last even more then a lifetime.

Do you remember 5th grade? I could relate because the book was written so well.

I think they made a movie based on this book. I can't wait to see it. If you saw it don't spoil the ending for anyone. This was a fast read. I think it was written for maybe 10-11 year olds but has some really deep themes to discuss with a parent.

I remember that I read this book in fifth grade, in Mr. Chapnicks class...(yes that was a teachers name that got made fun of a lot.) The only thing I remember from it was that I cried and cried, and cried some more. I think I hid in the closet to finish it because I couldn't stop crying and I was embarrassed. It was a great book.
