Jess Aarons' greatest ambition is to be the fastest runner in his grade. He's been practicing all summer and can't wait to see his classmates' faces when he beats them all. But on the first day of school, a new girl boldly crosses over to the boys' side and outruns everyone.

That's not a very promising beginning for a friendship, but Jess and Leslie Burke become inseparable. Together, they create Terabithia, a magical kingdom in the woods where the two of them reign as king and queen, and their imaginations set the only limits. Then one morning a terrible tragedy occurs. Only when Jess is able to come to grips with this tragedy does he finally understand the strength and courage Leslie has given him.

    I really liked this book! It is an amazing book about these magical woods, and how interesting they are. If you like this book, you will love the movie. The movie's a tad bit more interesting.

          I love this book! it is sad in the end, but the story plot is just amazing! it is about this boy who meets a girl. but before he meets her, he is a very depressed and angry boy. but then they create terabithia, and the girl teaches the boy courage and bravery. in the end, when the girl dies, the boy (Jesse) learns how much the girl (Leslie) has taught him. Not only is this book fun and adventurous to read, it also has many interesting points for writing essays. it also is a brain thinking book. (follow:-izzysk8er-

                    I think this book is a wonderful book, because its about friendship and fairness to me. Its a sad story and a happy story too because there some parts that really makes people feel grateful to the characters.
