Bridge to Terabithia (1977)

by Katherine Paterson



Jess Aarons, who wants to be the fastest boy in the 5th grade and doesn't get along very well with his family, befriends the new girl at school, Leslie Burke.

 


Among his schoolmates, only Leslie appreciates Jess's artistic temperament, and the two soul mates become inseparable, spending long hours together and creating their own imaginary kingdom--until tragedy strikes unexpectedly.

 


Katherine Paterson's novel, simply but effectively written, provides an opportunity to consider and discuss issues such as the nature of friendship, the meaning of death, and the importance of acceptance.

I thought Paterson stumbled at one point by having a teacher act in an unprofessional, implausible manner, but the resulting development was so powerful that my objection was soon forgotten.
