Paterson, Katherine: Bridge to Terabithia


This book is a work of children’s literature about two kids who create their own magical world in the forest. It was written in 1977 by Katherine Paterson. The characters all live in a small town called Lark Creek and most of the action takes place there.

Jess and Leslie are two tween outsider who become friends and escape from overbearing parents and bullies at school in their own private kingdom of Terabithia. Everything would have been perfect if their idyllic world hadn’t been shattered by a tragic accident.

I think that the book demonstrates how important friendship and imagination are.
