    "Jess Aarons has been practicing all summer so he can be the fastest runner in the fifth grade. And he almost is, until the new girl in school, Leslie Burke, outpaces him. The two become fast friends and spend most days in the woods behind Leslie's house, where they invent an enchanted land called Terabithia. One morning, Leslie goes to Terabithia without Jess and a tragedy occurs. It will take the love of his family and the strength that Leslie has given him for Jess to be able to deal with his grief."

    "I read this book as a teenager and wanted to re-read it again as an adult to see if I had gained a different perspective on it. I did. The book is heartbreaking, sad, you lose hope you gain hope. There are many emotions that flow through you as you read the story. You can feel the pain of the characters, you can feel what they are going through. As an adult, how you view things is slightly different and this story was no different. "

    "This was the hot potato of books when I was growing up. Someone would read it, get all sad, and then pass it on to someone else saying "you'll really enjoy this book! I swear!" and then the trick would begin anew. I didn't break the chain."

    "This is a book of fantasy that is great for Middle School age readers. I loved the friendship between Jess and Leslie. The story is very well written and it is easy to identify with the main characters. "

    "I am very drawn to nature and when I don't know what to read I often gravitate towards books depicting trees or a forest on the cover. This book was really good. The book is one twist after another. It really took me for a ride and is something I'm still recovering from. I'm really surprised it took me this long to discover the book. The book was very unique and a great piece of literature that I'm sure I will have to read again in the future."

    "Friendships can be irreplaceable sometimes. They may build empires and wonders with their bonds of love, respect and virtues. This book is about two friends that are the example of that. It describes how they go through hard times and good times and create the magical world of Terabithia."

    "One of the most unique and interesting books for young children. It tells the story of a unique friendship that any child can learn from."

    "This is an amazing book, for teenagers and adults ! it deals with sad issues in a very eloquent matter. To read the friendship between the two children develop makes you think they are your own, that's how much the book draws you in. "

    "I would not recommend this book. I found it to be a heavy emotional book that just doesn't sit right with a classic book for 90s kids."

    "Bridge to Terabithia is one of those classic books from childhood that always hangs with you. It's beautiful, but also incredibly sad, dealing with growing up and gut-wrenching loss."
  • Theresa Armstrong
    Written on May 13, 2018
    "This book is a heartfelt book that brought me into both tears and happiness. The plot is engaging with joy, but also sadness. I could imagine and feel emotions with the well-written characters. I think this is a good children's book, as long as the children can handle and process grief effectively."
  • Kathy Smith
    Written on May 11, 2018
    "I have very vivid memories of reading this book in school when I was young, and upon rereading it in my adulthood, it was every bit as poignant, heartbreaking, and profound that I remember it to be as a child. The way in which this book delicately and beautifully handles loss is such that readers of all ages can benefit from it. It is a powerfully written book that provides valuable insights into the human condition, and I think that everyone should read this story at least once in their lifetime. I believe the message of the book is extremely helpful to anyone who has experienced the death of a close loved one."

    "This is a wonderful book about friendship and then tragic loss. Fighting your inner demons and guilt can be hard but our character finds a way to be close to his friend again even though shes gone"

    "This novel broke my heart as a kid when I read it in school. It's a lovely book about two teenagers becoming friends and helping each other. This is an absolute must-read for anyone that loves these kinds of novels."

    "This book's story, while wonderfully magical, comes with some dark themes alongside the fantastical elements. It definitely has some lessons and coming of age tales that would be good for girls like mine to read and learn about. I think for my girl that's around 11 years old, this might be a little heavy for her to read without some discussions afterward. I enjoyed reading about the challenges and joys of friendships we all can make."
  • Navya Singhal

    "I don't know if I would consider this one of the best inspirational novels. To me it seemed to be more about friendship and loss and imagination more than inspiration. I read it years ago when I borrowed my niece's book. Because she loved it so much I thought I would too but I really didn't. Not sure if I was just too old for it or what, but I had trouble getting through it even."

    " Newbery books rarely steer me wrong. I had heard of this book for a very long time but never got around to reading it. I’m sad that it took me so long. This is such a classic tale of friendship and loss. We have all experienced losses and this book helps to show how love will give you strength. I can’t believe I waited this long, don’t be like me! "

    ""Bridge to Terabithia" is a mystical novel. Normally, I tend to avoid this kind of novels for they seem overly repetitive, but, I believe the author managed to create something completely unique and new with this novel. I love the friendship depicted in the book for it is pure and imperfect. In this case, imperfection has bred a wonderful friendship that ultimately resulted in Terabithia. This novel will make you cry at times and it is one of the saddest books I've read so far, hence would not recommend it if you're going through something tough or depressed. "

    "When looking for a new fiction novel, I stumbled across Bridge to Terabithia. It should be required reading in schools. It's a bittersweet tale about friendship and loss, and I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good Christian novel. "
