    by Selina

    I still remember having to read this book for school. Its started out nice with a sensistive artistic boy and adventurous young girl becoming friends. The death of a main character is not really good in a children's book. There is no indication when starting to read that it will be about death. Some children's books deal with the subject manner in a great fashion. This one is just not for kids.

    No one I spoke to had nice memories of the book. It is dull for most of the story and BAM... they kill off a poor girl in a gruesome fashion. This book is not for sensitive children or for most readers in general.

    This is one of my all time favorite books. I have several copies because whenever I see it I have to buy it! It is suited to over 10 year olds. It does have some very sad scenes not suitable for younger children. It is a heart warming story of friendship. You will treasure it and save it for your children to share like I am.

  • A moving tale of friendship and imagination Apr 3, 2007
    by Rexton

    This is a tale of a 10 year old boy, and the girl who beat him in front of his friends in the school race. He'd been training all summer, and had high hopes of winning. Then this new girl comes into the school, with city ways. She gets invited into a race, and blows him away.

    They eventually become friends and invent a fantasy world called Terabithia. Each learns to accept the other, and they share their hopes and secrets. Other books try this but become preachy. This author has a real feeling for how children feel, and this story feels real.

    I would rate it up there with a Wrinkle in Time, by Madeleine L'Engle.
