This weekend I was racking my brain for books that I hadn’t reviewed that were extraordinary and I came upon this one…
I also got the Iliad and the Odyssey as a gift this week and I can’t wait to read and review!
Jess Aarons’ one wish 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. He can feel the anticipation building up the whole morning of the first day of school. But during the race, 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.
But soon something happens… Something that may turn Terabithia into nothing but something that once was.
