About the Novel:
A dramatic and fascinating story of friendship! Jesse Aarons is a fourth grader who loves to run. Once the fastest and best runner at Lark Creek Elementary School in Virginia, until he was challenged by a girl: Leslie Burke. Leslie and her parents were new to this community, and they soon became best friends; their relationship was a strong one. Then, Leslie gets a great idea to create Terabithia, a secret place in the woods only for themselves. One day, while Jesse is not there, Leslie tries to cross the bridge to Terabithia, but falls in and drowns. When Jesse finds out, he is devastated. Soon after, the Burke family moves away, but Jesse believes that she has taught him something.
