Then, unexpectedly, Jess finds himself sticking up for Leslie, for the girl who breaks rules and wins races. The friendship between the two grows as Jess guides the city girl through the pitfalls of life in their small, rural town, and Leslie draws him into the world of imaginations world of magic and ceremony called Terabithia.

    Comments about Bridge to Terabithia:

    This was a sentimental present for a much younger cousin as a rite of passage for the next stage of her life - her wedding. We read the book together when she was 11 and it made an unbroken bond between us. The power of literature never ceases to amaze.Katherine Patterson has written a number of beautiful books which are just as pertinent today as they were when written.
