Its a cool book.

movie was so heart breaking I cried good book too.

I think the book "Bridge to Terabithia," is a sad, yet exciting story about a girl and a boy who create a land named "Terabithia," and enjoy it every day until the girl meets her unexpected death of drowning in a river. This book captures many readers attention of the world of ficton.

This book is really good!!!!!!! Must read!!!!!

Bridge to Terabithia is a story of a young, misunderstood boy in need of a friend. When a new neighbor moves in, they develop a friendship and hideaway (imaginary) place that they named Terabithia. Unexpectedly, his new friend dies, leaving him with regrets. This novel is much better than the movie. I reccomend this to preteens who love fictional stories!
