Book Review

By Kimberly Grace (10)Class 3-5

I used to read this book over and over again when I was in Primary 3. It was the book my sister was studying for Literature. I liked the book's storyline, especially when Jess' memories of Leslie and her courage inspired him to be strong, to stand up and face reality. But what really made this book memorable for me was that I could relate to the characters in the book and also that while reading this book, I was able to create an image of how Terabithia looked like and felt like. It felt like I was being drawn into the book, like I was in Terabithia, a place where I could forget my problems.
