Solonor, Mrs. R, and I all went out last night. We were talking and the subject of the internet came up.....(I say this as if we talk about other things once in a while ha!)....It turned tward the fact that I haden't written, so I said "I've been really busy and besides I don't have anything to write really." The subject turned to books and long story short I now do book reviews. Blah blah blah!
My first book review is
Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson
This is one of my favorite books, the only reason I can think of why it was banned is.......wellllll if I told you It would give away the ending of the book. Anyway its about this boy, Jess, who thinks his father doesn't like him much. He wants to be an artist and draws cartoons. Everyone thinks its a waste of time except 2 people. His little sister, May Belle, and his music teacher (a hippie in others eyes) whom Jess has a crush on. So this new family moves in next door and they have a lot of money.....but no tv. Leslie is Jess's age. They are both outcasts. They make up a imaginary land, Terabithia, that they are king and queen of. You have to swing on a vine, the bridge, over a stream to get there. They play there every day and stay there as long as they can. One Saturday after long time of rain Jess gets a phone call from his music teacher. She invites him to go to an art exibit in town. He goes and forgets to tell Leslie. When he gets back May Belle and his family have something to tell him........You really should read it. It is one of the best books that I have ever read!
Other books by Katherine Paterson: Jacob Have I Loved, The Great Gilly Hopkins, and The Sign of the Chrysanthemum
There are a ton of books by Katherine Paterson that you can read. I strongly suggest Bridge to Treabithia to boys and girls, And Jacob have I loved to girls.
