Argggh, I got the scale turned around and didn't mean to give this book a "bad" rating. Now I can't see how to change it, so I'm rating it correctly in this post.

This is an exceptional and complex book with characters you'll really care about. Two warnings: if you have seen the movie first, you won't find overt visions of Terabithia in the book. The movie is pretty good about following the spirit of the original story in content and tone but the CGI effects show things that weren't described in the book; what the kids imagined about Terabithia in the book was mostly kept quiet. In addition, Leslie was the Queen of Terabithia in the book and is only a Princess in the movie. Second warning: the climax is right up there with Old Yeller. Some readers may not expect it.

"Synopsis" by , All summer, Jess pushed himself to be the fastest boy in the fifth grade, and when the year's first school-yard race was run, he was going to win. But his victory was stolen by a newcomer, by a girl, one who didn't even know enough to stay on the girls' side of the playground. Then, unexpectedly, Jess finds himself sticking up for Leslie, for the girl who breaks rules and wins races. The friendship between the two grows as Jess guides the city girl through the pitfalls of life in their small, rural town, and Leslie draws him into the world of imaginations world of magic and ceremony called Terabithia. Here, Leslie and Jess rule supreme among the oaks and evergreens, safe from the bullies and ridicule of the mundane world. Safe until an unforeseen tragedy forces Jess to reign in Terabithia alone, and both worlds are forever changed.

In this poignant, beautifully rendered novel, Katherine Paterson weaves a powerful story of friendship and courage.
