Bridge to Terabithia

Bridge to Terabithia - Katherine Paterson In spite of knowing the end beforehand I found it very sad. I even tried to not like Jesse and Leslie so much, but it was inevitable. I love their friendship. More so because they were kind of lonely children. Leslie, being the odd new girl at school, and Jesse, the only boy among so many sisters. And poor Jesse, his two older sisters were odious, and the little one a cry-baby. I am glad he got along with Mary Belle.

I assume people read this book along with "Where the Red Fern Grows" when they are in school (I didn't). I loved this one, it was simple but touching. As for WTRFG, yuck. Terrible book. So if you are like me and have never read this 2 classics, skip WTRFG (awful book) but read this one instead.
