From the mind of playwright Katherine Paterson comes a rousing fantasy adventure about friendship, family, and the wondrous power of imagination. A perpetual outsider both at home and at school, Jess Aarons just never seems to fit in no matter how hard he tries. When his goal to become the fastest runner in middle school is unexpectedly thwarted by newly arrived classmate Leslie Burke, Jess soon strikes up a friendship with the imaginative outsider. Their bond is soon cemented thanks to Leslie's love for storytelling and Jess' skill as an artist, and the two lonely kids create a secret kingdom called Terabithia. Though Jess and Leslie may be considered outcasts by their classmates, their adventures in Terabithia find themselves as the Queen and King as they plot revenge against the schoolyard bullies. Now, thanks to his adventures in Terabithia and his friendship with Leslie, Jess finally finds the confidence needed to stand tall and be himself.
