Jess Aarons wants to be the fastest boy in the class. He's been practising all summer and he's sure he's going to win. But when a girl named Leslie Burke moves into the neighbouring farm his life changes forever. Not only does Leslie not look or act like any of the girls in school, she also turns out to be the fastest runner in the year. After getting over the humiliation of being beaten by a girl, Jess begins to think Leslie might be okay - she's clever and funny and not a bit soppy. It is Leslie who invents Terabithia, the secret country on an island across the creek. Here Jess could forget his large, quarrelsome family, his father who thought it was ummanly to love drawing, and his little sister May Belle, who was always tagging after him. Here he could be strong and unafraid. The only way to reach Terabithia is by rope-swing where Jess and Leslie become King and Queen, defeating giants, sharing stories and dreams, and plotting against their enemies. They are invincible - until tragedy strikes.
It is more dreadful than anything Jess had ever dreamed of, but as he struggles to cope with his grief and anger, he finds that his family value him more than he'd thought and that, still King, he could even save Terabithia for the future.

    I know this book from the Movie.

    Thestory is Not magic, it is about a boy grew up, and his mind first teacher - the neighbor girl. Growth, as well as the growing pains is an eternal topic. Leslie's arrival is like angels bestow the keys, she opened the door to another world, guide Jesse to see the wider world, but more importantly, to see a broader mind. The boy grow up.
    Leslie, his first teacher day he went to the museum, unfortunately, fell into the creek, lost their lives. Or, we can say, When the angel completed her task, left the world forever, Leslie disappear in the middle of the river link farms and Terabithia. Sense, Leslie is the Bridge to Terabithia, her connection between reality and fantasy. http://starmall.co.uk

    一個充滿想像力的鄰居,故事主人翁是剛好是相反個性,很互補的一對朋友感覺。
    朋友對自己有什麼樣的重大影響呢
    當好友遇到挫折時,自己會不會去鼓舞對方
    當好友成就不凡時,自己會不會真心為對方開心
    面對好友永恆的離去,自己會不會為他更堅強,更開闊視野
    有些事、有些人~當經過歲月的淬鍊後,更會懂的珍惜當下

    在電視上看到電影尋找夢奇地,因為看得有一搭沒一搭的,就把原著小說找出來完整看一遍。查了一下,原來就是青少年拇指系列的通往泰瑞比西亞的橋。
    電影的預告我還滿有印象的,當時看完覺得就是時下流行的奇幻作品,不過實際上根本不是這麼回事,這是一個探討青少年心靈成長的好故事啊~
    可是...看到青少年文庫就應該要有所警惕,想到小時候看紅色羊齒草的故鄉哭得唏哩嘩啦的,通往泰瑞比西亞的橋看到最後也是一把鼻涕一把眼淚,果然青少年心靈成長的故事不管何時看都很感人(拇指)~
