The One Where I Read • Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson

This book rates five out of five. The story of friendship family, love and loss or major components of a book that can win the hearts of many young and old. Only forty years old, but I deem it a classic as it is timeless within its relatability in the past, present, and future.
