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

The Funeral is a touching short-story about loss and acceptance. The protagonist is a child who recently lost his best friend in a tragic accident. The narrator Tom Jordan did a really great job, carrying the listener into this heartfelt story of endurance and the ability to appreciate the little things in life.

The end of Terabithia

Any additional comments?

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.<br/><br/>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.<br/><br/>This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
