Bridge to Terabithia

Bridge to Terabithia - Katherine Paterson, Donna Diamond This book did move me and I liked how Jess' character developed towards the end.Nevertheless, I thought the writing style did not reflect the characters or their environment whatsoever.The book is written from Jess' point of view, but the writing style is extremely poetic. That just doesn't feel authentic at all, especially since Jess himself can't even spell right.Even though the beautiful writing did make the book more worthwhile, it clashed with its young protagonists. This made me feel Paterson's presence as writer of a fictional story, and that somewhat lessened the magic of it all for me. Nevertheless, lovely story to read.
