Friendship In the book, “Bridge to Terabithia” by Katherine Paterson, and the book, “Raymond’s Run” by Toni Cade Bambara, I believe the theme is friendship. Friends are one of the most important things in life, your friends shape you and make you who you are your true friends are the people who are always there for you and always back you up.In the book “Bridge to Terabithia” Jesse finds a true friend and in “Raymond's Run” Squeaky finds out that she needs a friend and that she needs to stop pushing people away. My first reason why I think that the theme is friendship is because they both lost their friend in different ways. Like in the book, “ Raymond’s run” she lost her friend by pushing them away while in the book, “Bridge to Terabithia” he lost his friend in a tragedy of death. Both lost their friends in different ways but they both still had a strong friendship.
