was beautifully written !
A must read!

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!!!!!
