Book Review: Bridge to Terabithia

I saw the movie, Bridge to Terabithia, shortly after it came out. I had tried to read the book, but it just didn't seem that interesting. And she overused the word "Lord" a lot. The style just wasn't what I was used to. I picked up the book and decided to try it again a few nights ago. I just finished it about thirty mintues ago, and it was amazing. Just beware, you will need tissues for the last few chapters.

For anyone who has seen the movie, the book followed almost perfectly. The story is somewhat of a true one. The author based the main character, Jess, on her son, and Leslie on his best friend. Knowing that, it makes the story a bit sadder.

I read this book in Elementary School.
I hated the ending.
I still do.
I didn't even like it in the movie.
It is a great book though.
