The book is about two children named Jesse Oliver Aarons and Leslie Burke. They use their imagination to create a kingdom just for them where there are no bad fears to harm them. They are the king and queen of their kingdom and they call it Terabithia. They grow to be close friends and have many adventures then build a castle called the stronghold.

Bridge to Terabithia is an imaginative and descriptive book. The book is about a boy named Jesse Oliver Aarons who's biggest dreams are to be an artist. It takes place in Washington. He also has dreams of being the fastest runner in the fifth grade. Every morning during the summer he wakes up at the crack of dawn to practice running. When he is running one morning he is surprized by a girl who just moved in down the street. They grow to be close friends. They make up an imaginary kingdom called Terabithia. They are the king and queen of Terabithia there imaginary kingdom. They are the only ones that know about it.

At Terabithia they build a castle. The only way to get to Terabithia is to swing on a rope across a usually dry creek. The end I will now leave up to you to read.

This book was great. I think the theme was to use your imagination, and let your feelings out and remeber that when things go wrong you still have to move on in life.
