Book description: Jess Aarons dreams of becoming the fastest runner in the fifth grade. He practices all summer, certain that when school starts again in the fall he'll have no trouble beating the other boys his age, but he didn't count on Leslie Burke moving in next door. On the first day of school, all the boys are itching for recess to come so they can resume their racing games. In a moment of impetuousness meant to put a bossy classmate in his place, Jess invites Leslie to join them, never imagining that a girl would beat them all. Out of this inauspicious beginning, Jess and Leslie develop a deep friendship. Together they secretly build a make-believe kingdom called Terabithia where they are the king and queen. They visit the land of their fantasies as often as they can, and learn much about each other while plotting to vanquish their foes both real and imagined. In spite of their differences, they understand each other in a way that no one else does, but when a terrible tragedy strikes, Jess must discover and call upon all the strength, courage and hope that he never realized Leslie had given him.
