I’m a few days behind on the Ultimate Blog Challenge. Yet right now I’m catching up.
I’m sitting here writing right now. I took our cat to the vet this morning and actually had a few minutes to read. I picked up Bridge to Terebithia a few weeks ago. It was out at my local library’s summer reading section. The library had it grouped for fifth grade reading. This is another one of the books I read many, many years ago and grasped it in an entirely different manner.
If you haven’t read it, I’m not giving any spoilers except it is a coming of age story. You will meet Jess, the narrator, his family, his schoolmates, and his neighbor, Leslie.
From my standpoint now what I like about the book is that Jess isn’t your perfect student. He’s an artist and follows his passion even though everyone mocks him for it. Leslie is basically a tomboy, also mocked for following her own drummer.
If you haven’t read this book ever, or just in a long time, it is well worth going back to read it again. Also, it is a must for the tweens and teens you may know.
