A heartfelt story of endurance and the ability to appreciate the little things in life

The end of Terabithia
When I read Bridge to Terabithia as a child, it was the first time I'd encountered some of the feelings I found in there and I become obsessed. I was almost offended when I found out it was famous. The book felt so personal. I wasn't sure how I felt about sharing it.
Although The Funeral doesn't technically claim any relationship to Bridge to Terabithia, it is obviously this author's loving epilogue to that classic. The Funeral is the devastatingly sad ending about a child's first loss. Guilt and grieving too big for a kid and as incomprehensible as it is relatable and inevitable.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
