But when Jess arrives at the school playground to show off his speed, his new neighbor, Leslie Burke, beats him to it. Literally. She's way faster than Jess. But instead of being jealous, Jess admires Leslie's skill, confidence, and wild imagination. The two become instant friends, spending hours in the woods by their houses creating a magical kingdom. Then tragedy strikes—and Jess is left alone. How can he ever go on?
Gripping, relatable, and very emotional, this powerful tale touches hearts with its wonderful portrayal of love and friendship.
