Ba-room, ba-room, ba-room, baripity, baripity, baripity--good. His dad had the pickup going. He could get up now. Jess slide out of bed and into his overalls. (from the first line)
It doesn't matter to Jess that Leslie dresses funny, or that her family has a lot of money but no TV. Lesile has imagination. Then one morning a terrible tragedy occurs. Will Jess be able to put into action the strength and courage Leslie has given him?
From the Publisher:
Jess Aarons gains the strength to cope with unexpected tragedy by going to a secret kingdom in the woods invented by Leslie Burke, a newcomer to his rural Virginia community.
Annotation:
One of the saddest and most inspiring children's books of all time, 1978 Newbery Medal-winner THE BRIDGE TO TERABITHIA is a poignant, moving classic not to be missed. Ten-year-old Jess, an artistic loner in rural, working-class Virginia, finds himself beaten by a newcomer--a girl no less--in the boys' playground races on the first day of school. But soon, the two become inseparable friends, despite Leslie's strange family--who are wealthy and don't even own a TV set. The pair creates the elaborate fantasy world of Terabithia, where they rule as king and queen in their own secret hiding place. When an unimaginable tragedy sways Jess's world, he learns the real value of their exceptional friendship.
Author Bio
Katherine Paterson
Born to German-American missionary parents, Katherine Womeldorf moved frequently during her childhood. As an adult, she followed in her parents' footsteps and served as a missionary in Japan. She received a fellowship to study at Union Theological Seminary where she met her future husband, John Paterson, a Presbyterian minister. Her 1975 book, THE MASTER PUPPETEER, won the National Book Award. She wrote one of her best-known books, THE BRIDGE TO TERABITHIA, in response to the death of her son's best friend. It won the Newbery Medal in 1978. In 1981 she won her second Newbery Medal, this time for JACOB HAVE I LOVED.

Praise

(unknown)
"The story is one of remarkable richness and depth, beautifully written."

(unknown)
"There are only a few novels for children about death...This one succeeds brilliantly and speaks to the resolution of grief among the living. But because the writing is so fine and persuasive, the impact on readers of all ages is deep." - Eden Ross Lipson
