Bridge to Terabithia

Bridge to Terabithia is a dramatic preteen novel about friendship, death and loss. A boy named Jess and a girl named Leslie bond over racing and become friends. Their friendship is considered unlikely because the two come from different social classes, plus boy-girl friendships aren’t the norm at their school. After school, Jess and Leslie spend time in a secret land, Terabithia. Here they can be themselves without the judging eyes of their peers. The story ends in tragedy but with a healthy adaptation to loss.
