For Jess and Leslie, Terabithia is a secret and magical place where they can express their dreams and expose their inner pain. It is a place where they can achieve their own hearts' desires without being at the command of imposed goals reflecting others' desires for them. Terabithia is a honest place that is enlivened with the magic their real lives lack.
