Book Summary

Jess Aarons is the fastest runner in his class — until a newcomer, the tomboyish Leslie, challenges him. Not only is Leslie a tomboy; she's also an atheist and a misfit at their school. But after that rough beginning, Jess and Leslie become close friends, inventing together the magical forest kingdom of Terabithia. A story of friendship, imagination and learning to deal with tragedy.
