So as you all know was hyped up on Red Bull, Chai Smoothie, and root beer from last night. Which is very odd because I never drink that much caffine. I truly spent until 8-11:30 last night finishing up my wonderful book report. In mine own words I call, the BOMBDIGGITY! I was coming home from work last night and I was listening to this amazing song by this new artist I found named James Morrison. "This Boy", seems to describe exactly the life and story of Terabithia. I hurried home to get started on cracking this song apart. When I started to listen to it more and I read the lyrics it explains even more to the story. The beginning of it talks about a boy and that boy seems just like Jess Aarons, one of the main characters in "Bridge to Terabithia". A few stanzas down it talk about girl, how she excells yet it goes unnoticed, just like Leslie Burke. Then it says, "Now she don't make a sound", is like telling how Leslie passes away. The chorus states kind of what would be Jess' perspective, that he is still here and he knows that Leslie had good reasons and he is scared because he doesn't understand. Since Jess was only 10 years old and Leslie dies he struggles with dealing with it and doesn't understand that she is really gone. When the song says, "The older I get, the more that I know... well it's time to let this go", is like Jess saying when he gets older he'll understand death better but for now he'll just have to deal with it all and forget it.
I love the book and it was so much better than the movie. This song was perfect and I think that the caffeine boost helped me have a better presentation!

You were way to hyper yesterday morning. I couldn't even understand what you were trying to say. I also did Bridge to Terabithia and i think that the song was a nice add. It was very relevant to the story. It's really fun that you found that song. I also loved the book. I actually read the whole thing, and I thonght it was better than the movie. I still recommend the movie, especially to children. They can really relate to it.
