A Sad Juvenile Novel...Be Prepared

Bridge to Terabithia

Bridge to Terabithia

By: Katherine Paterson

Genre: Juvenile fiction

Pages: 176

Published: 2003

Read: November

5 out of 5

I saw the movie years ago when it was released in 2007. I had no idea what to except and sobbed like a baby. Although the book touched me deeply, fortunately I was able to stop the tears. I believe this was only because I knew what to expect, otherwise I would have broke down and cried again. I prepared myself this time.  I was very impressed with the movie adaption of the story as it did a remarkable job of following the novel. As most readers, I get irritated with movies that stray away from the novel’s storyline. I believe this novel will be enjoyed by readers of all ages, particularly tweens (age 9-12). With the age and imagination of the 10 year old protagonists and the illustrations, I am very surprised that my library and others classify this novel as YA.  I feel this novel would be better catalogued in the juvenile fiction.

I have not read any of her other books, although there are several I hope to read someday. Check them out at www.terabithia.com.
