Summary: Jess Aarons’ life is not exactly ideal. In a place where individualism and creative expression is scorned, Jess struggles to become himself. He secretly draws any chance he gets, and he practices each day to be the fastest runner in the fifth grade. However, a new girl, Leslie Burke, wins on the day of the big race.
This is no ideal beginning for a friendship, but Jess soon finds Leslie to be a true friend and full of imagination. Together, the two create an imaginary kingdom, Terabithia, where they reign as king and queen.
