Title: Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson


1
Bridge to Terabithiaby Katherine Paterson
2
despise
  • P.2 When you were the only boy smashed between
    four sisters, and the older two had despised you
    ever since you stopped letting them dress you up
    and wheel you around in their rusty old doll
    carriage, and the littlest one cried if you
    looked at her cross-eyed, it was nice to have
    somebody who worshiped you.

3
grit
  • P. 3 He had never learned to run properly, but
    he was long-legged for a ten year-old, and no one
    had more grit than he.

4
puny
  • P. 5. He had to let that puny chest of his know
    who was boss.

5
scald
  • P. 5 He dumped two spoonfuls of sugar into his
    cup and slurped to keep the hot coffee from
    scalding his mouth.

6
shudder
  • P. 10 Joyce Anns lip went out. They both
    watched it tremble. Then her pudgy body
    shuddered, and she let out a great cry.

7
pudgy
  • P. 10 Then her pudgy body shuddered, and she
    let out a great cry.

8
muddled
  • P. 10 The peace would start at the top of his
    muddled brain and seep down through his tired and
    tensed-up body.

9
pandemonium, anticipation, and allotted
  • P. 13 So the students of Lark Creek Elementary
    sat at their desk all Friday, their hearts
    thumping with anticipation as they listened to
    the joyful pandemonium pouring out from the
    teachers room. Spent their allotted half hours
    with Miss Edmunds under the spell of her wild
    beauty and in the snare of her enthusiasms, and
    then went out and pretended that they couldnt be
    suckered by some hippie in tight jeans with
    makeup all over her eyes but none on her mouth.

10
hypocritical
  • P. 14 Jess just kept his mouth shut. It
    wouldnt help to try to defend Miss Edmunds
    against their unjust and hypocritical attacks.

11
inherited
  • P. 20 Thirty pairs of eyes were suddenly focused
    on desk-top scratches. Jess ran his forefinger
    around the heart with two pairs of initials, BR
    SK, trying to figure out whose desk he had
    inherited.

12
distribution
  • P. 22 Mrs. Myers handed out books almost as
    though she were President of the United States,
    dragging the distribution process out in
    senseless signings and ceremonies.

13
repulsive
  • P. 23 He forgot that he was trying to eat
    carefully and took a loud slurp of his milk.
    Wanda Moore turned around, all priss-face. Jesse
    Aarons. That noise is pure repulsive.

14
conspicuous
  • P. 24 The fifth-grader boys, bursting with new
    importance, ordered the fourth graders this way
    and that, while the smaller boys tried to include
    themselves without being conspicuous.

15
conceited
  • P. 27 It would seem conceited to look back.

16
grudgingly
  • P. 28 Fulchers fist went up. But Jess walked
    away from it. Fulcher would have to let her run
    now, he knew. And Fulcher did, angrily and
    grudgingly.

17
melodic
  • P. 30 Even her ordinary speaking voice bubbled
    up from inside her, rich and melodic.

18
deliberately
  • P 31 He felt there in the teachers room that
    it was the beginning of a new season in his life,
    and he chose deliberately to make it so.

19
consolidated
  • P. 32 She was quiet for a moment, thinking,
    Jess decided, about her former school, which he
    saw as bright and new with a gleaming gymnasium
    larger than the one at the consolidated high
    school.

20
composition
  • P. 33 It started with Mrs. Myers reading out
    loud a composition that Leslie had written about
    her hobby.

21
coward
  • P. 34 Lord, he was such a coward. How could he
    be all in a tremble just listening to Mrs. Myers
    read about it? He was worse a baby than Joyce
    Ann.

22
contempt
  • P. 35 The hissing hounds of disbelief were
    already building into a rumbling of contempt?

23
upheaval
  • P. 35 She tried to smile across the classroom
    upheaval to Leslie, but it was no use. Class!
    Class! Class!

24
ominously
  • P. 35
  • Her Leslie smile shifted suddenly and ominously
    into a scowl that silenced the storm.

25
abruptly
  • P. 35 Go away!She turned abruptly and headed
    the other way in a fast walk.

26
vigorously
  • Sure, he repeated himself, nodding vigorously.

27
insufficient
  • P. 40 Gary Fulcher, Wanda Kay Moore, Janice
    Avery, Jesss own fears and insufficiencies, nor
    any of the foes whom Leslie imagined attacking
    Terabithia, could ever really defeat them.

28
solemnly
  • P. 50 Leslie solemnly crossed her heart.

29
crimson
  • P. 55 Wilmas face was crimson as she screamed
    out the window, OK, you dummy!

30
stricken
  • P. 55 Leslie looked stricken, Youre not sorry
    we did it, are you?

31
speculation
  • P. 57 This year Ellie and Brenda both had
    boyfriends at the consolidated high school and
    the problem of what to give them and what to
    expect from them was cause of endless speculation
    and fights.

32
surplus
  • P. 57 Fights, because as usual, their mother
    was complaining that there was hardly enough
    money to give the little girls something from
    Santa Claus, let alone a surplus to buy record
    albums or shirts for a pair of boys shed never
    set eyes on.

33
foundling
  • P. 58 Maybe he thought, I was a foundling, like
    in the stories. Way back when the creek had
    water in it, I came floating down it in a wicker
    basket waterproofed with pitch.

34
sneer
  • P. 59 At least if she had one, it would be one
    less thing for the kids at school to sneer about.

35
gully
  • P. 60 He could have walked through the gully.
    It would have been easier, but he couldnt escape
    the feeling that one must enter Terabithia only
    by the prescribed entrance.

36
guardian
  • P. 61 Then well name him Prince Terrien an
    make him the guardian of Terabithia.

37
reluctant
  • P. 65 Jess tried going to Terabithia alone, but
    it was no good. It needed Leslie to make the
    magic. He was afraid he would destroy everything
    by trying to force the magic on his own, when it
    was plain that the magic was reluctant to come
    for him.

38
dregs
  • P. 67 Or maybe it was the time of year-the last
    dregs of winter spoiling the taste of everything.
    Nobody, human or animal, seemed happy.

39
nuisance
  • P. 69 Jess found he was rally useful to him,
    not a nuisance to be tolerated or set out on the
    porch like P.T.

40
prospectors
  • P. 69 First they ripped out the boards that
    covered the ancient fireplace, coming upon the
    rusty bricks like prospectors upon the mother
    lode.

41
garish
  • P. 69 Next they got the old wallpaper off the
    living room wall-all five garish layers of it.

42
obliged
  • P. 72 How could he explain it to her? Leslie.
    If she was an animal predator, wed be obliged to
    try to help her.

43
alcove
  • P. 73 He crept down the ahll after her and hid
    behind the nearest alcove to the girls room
    door.

44
vile
  • P. 75 She looked for a word vile enough to
    describe Janice Averys friends and found none.
    Those two girls blabbed it all over the seventh
    grade.

45
complacent
  • P. 79 Jess was glad to escape to the shed and
    the complacent company of Miss Bessie.

46
spectacle
  • P. 80 It would make you throw up to see how
    those girls make a spectacle of themselves in
    church.

47
clamber
  • P. 83 Jess tickled her to get her giggling
    again, so that when the four of them clambered
    down over the tail gate, they were flushed-faced
    and happy once more.

48
flounce
  • P. 83 They were a little late, which didnt
    bother Ellie and Brenda for it meant that they
    got to flounce down the entire length of the
    aisle to the first pew, making sure that every
    eye in the church was on them, and every
    expression of every eye a jealous one.

49
conspiring
  • P. 86 it was as though the elements were
    conspiring to ruin their short week of freedom.

50
mournfully
  • P. 86 What I want to do is go to Terabithia,
    she said, looking out mournfully at the pouring
    rain.

51
vanquished
  • P. 90 In the dim light he could see Leslies
    face freeze into its most queenly pose-the kind
    of expression she usually reserved for vanquished
    enemies.

52
horrid
  • P. 93 He hardly slept the rest of the night,
    listening to the horrid rain and knowing that no
    matter how high the creek came, Leslie would
    still want to cross it.

53
scrawny
  • P. 95 May Belle was as scrawny as Brenda was
    fat.

54
absorbed
  • P. 98 He was glad May Belle was absorbed in the
    TV.

55
suppress
  • P. 98 When he thought about it, he couldnt
    suppress a secret pleasure at being alone in this
    small cozy car with Miss Edmunds.

56
gallery
  • P. 99 Is this your first trip to an art
    gallery?

57
protest
  • P. 100 He tried to think of some way to protest
    without ending up with the bill, but couldnt,
    and found himself getting a three dollar meal,
    which was far more than he had meant to have her
    spend on him.

58
relentlessly
  • P. 104 His father went quietly and relentlessly
    on.

59
certainty
  • P. 104 When they pulled up at his house, his
    father sat quietly, and Jess could feel the mans
    uncertainty, so he opened the door and got out,
    and with the numbness flooding through him, went
    in and lay down on his bed.

60
accusation
  • P. 108 She kept nodding her head. Your daddy
    did it for you. But it wasnt an accusation.

61
cremated

    regular voice that they had decided to have the
    body cremated and were going to take the ashes to
    his family home in Pennsylvania tomorrow.

lumber
  • P. 127 Could I have some of the lumber on the
    back porch.

63
emphasis
  • P. 127 She was jerking her head back and forth
    in solemn emphasis.

64
stranded
  • P. 114 She had made him leave his old self
    behind and and come into her world, and then
    before he was really at home in it but too late
    to go back, she had left him stranded there
    like an astronaut wandering about on the moon.

65
gradually
  • P. 115 Gradually his breath quieted, and his
    heart slowed from its wild pace.

66
piteously
  • P. 119 P.T. was left crying piteously on the
    other side.

constricting

    upward into his throat constricting it.
