Children's Fiction

Finished July 4
Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson
I'd heard a lot about this Newberry Award winner, and finally got around to reading it.
Jess Aaron is going into fifth grade at the start of this book and his big ambition is to be the fastest runner in the school. When the new girl in town beats all the boys, things change. Leslie lives near Jess and the two become friends. They create an imaginary world for themselves called Terabithia and learn together about all kinds of things. When a tragedy occurs, Jess is forced to deal with his feelings about those around him and the strength he has learned he has inside.
A great book.
