Bride to Terabithia is an amazing book that everyone should read! It is about a young boy, named Jess, trying to be the fastest runner in school, until a new girl shows up, named Leslie. The two quickly become friends and spend most of their time together in a magical land they created in the woods behind Leslie's house. After tragedy strikes, Leslie has to learn to grieve with the help of his little sister and the rest of his family. This book teaches students about the power of imagination and the importance of friendship. I would use this book in my fifth grade classroom.
