From Publishers Weekly
Paterson's Newbery-winning novel becomes an entertaining and dramatic audiobook via Leonard's accomplished reading. Jess Aarons is eager to start fifth grade. He's been practicing his sprints all summer, determined to become the fastest runner at school. All seems to be on track, until the new girl in class (who also happens to be Jess's new next-door neighbor), Leslie Burke, leaves all the boys in the dust, including Jess. After this rather frustrating introduction, Jess and Leslie soon become inseparable. Together, they create an imaginary, secret kingdom in the woods called Terabithia that can be reached only by swinging across a creek bed on a rope. But one morning a tragic accident befalls Leslie as she ventures alone to Terabithia, and Jess's life is changed forever. Leonard deftly interprets the strands of humor, realism and heart-wrenching emotion woven into Paterson's fine tale. His careful and authentic handling of Jess's anger and grief in the aftermath of the accident is sure to touch listeners. Contemporary instrumental interludes featuring guitar, piano and drums signal the beginning and end of each tape side. Ages 9-up.

Bridge to Terebithia is a story that I first came to love based on the movie. After having watched it for the third time recently, I decided to buy the Kindle version of the book. I was moved by portrayals of Jess and Leslie and their friendship at 10 years of age that dove deep quickly and impacted them both well beyond normal friendships. Jess is presented as a boy who is an outcast and who is picked on due to his poverty and his interests. Into the sadness of his existence at both home and school rushes this girl his age named Leslie. While at first disinterested, he warms to her and she opens his life and mind well beyond his own creativity and dreams. The book marries together youthful friendship, perhaps even the love between friends, and tragedy that becomes redemptive in such a compelling way. While Leslie never becomes a popular girl, her impact upon Jess, Jess's family, the teachers and students of Lark Creek Elementary is huge. You will not be disappointed by this children's book by Katherine Paterson.
