Anyhowzers, for those who haven't read the book or seen the movie (it stars J-Hutch and Anna Sophia Robb as young whipper snappers). It is about a ten year old boy, Jesse who lives with his four sisters, mum and a dad who is distant and not at all loving (so he thinks). His life is turned upside down in a good way when neighbours move into the next farm along with a daughter, Leslie. Leslie is not your typical ten year old girl and her parents' alternative ways result in her being excluded and whispered about at school. Jesse finds himself befriending her, resulting in his life changing forever. Leslie and Jesse create their own secret, magical land called Terrabithia where they rule as King and Queen and fight off giants and pay homage to the tree spirits.
A true and kind hearted book that speaks of the amazing benefits and consequences of friendship with an ending you won't see coming.
