Bridge to TerabithiaBurke become inseparable Together they create Terabithia a magical kingdom in the woods where the two of them reign as king and ueen and their imaginations set the only limi My damn heart is broken 😭😭😭😭😭😭This book broke my heart and left me in tears when I finished up reading it And I was not expecting it to be this sad and devastating in the end as I went into this children's classic blindlyThe story tells about the blooming friendship between two kids Jesse Aarons and his new neighbour Leslie Burke two lonely kids Jess being the only male child in his family and expected to take care of errands and his sisters; Leslie being an outcast and bullied at school The story developed fine and the writing style made it feel like life becomes better with a friend a sweet younger sibling who looks up to you an understanding teacher and it's best to avoid negative people be it your family or so called 'friends' It's the second half that the writing got intense and got me sobbing mad It dealt with death and grief which I feel were handled well I cried so because I got too attached to these characters as well as their pet dog PT Leslie's character is delightful and memorable She's such a nerd And an amazing personality Jess's character is amusing He's that personality which says there's always sunshine after a rainy dayI love the fantasy world they built It's something to be rejoiced and something for which a price had to be paid unfortunatelyI didn't enjoy the stereotypes of body shaming the way some characters were described and in some instances the unwelcomed violence in a book which is meant for children But a memorable read indeed

Just because it took time to flesh out the characters and add detail to the world of Terabithia whereas in the book Terabithia was ironically rather underexplainedI loved how it described Jess as having a nervous gut There were references to Jess having anxiety in this and i’m glad it wasn’t portrayed as something like HE NEEDS TO MAN UP HE’S AFRAID OF SWIMMING AND HIS DAD PUTS A LOT OF PRESSURE ON HIM TO BE PERFECT HE SHOULD BE THE MAN OF THE FAMILY Instead it’s approached as if fear and shyness is natural and you need to work through it organically and I thought that was really beautiful and encouraging

T on the first day of school a new girl boldly crosses over to the boys' side and outruns everyoneThat's not a very promising beginning for a friendship but Jess and Leslie This is one of the books that taught me that Books Can Hurt It was part of what I now consider to be my fourth grade teacher's reign of terror she read Where the Red Fern Grows and Bridge to Terabithia out loud to us and those are just the books I was in her class for and I seriously think she did it for the days when inevitably the entire class would spend the afternoon weeping at our desksThat said though and it needed to be said this is a good book; it was so engaging to me at that age that I got it from the library after the first day she read it to us and finished it by myself later that night Admittedly this was not uncommon behavior for me I did not like reading at other people's paces Of course this meant I got to cry twice and also spend the intervening time trying not to cry because I knew what was coming The characters are engaging The story is memorable even 25 years later But this is the book that taught me two important lessons do not trust Katherine Paterson as far as you can see her and do not trust fourth grade teachers either
