Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson Leslie Burke by Kai Gylling 7ENG 21 Mrs Grace
This was Leslie's first encounter with Jess, after their race at school which was the one Jess badly wanted to win. Leslie was still shy but wanted to help!
Hey, Jess right, need a hand?
After the race at school they both got off the bus at the same stop. Leslie knowing how Jess felt, challenged him to race to boost her confidence
Bet you can't keep up!
At this point Jess and Leslie help out May-Belle by pulling a prank on Janice! This gave Leslie and Jess more bonding time and really let Leslie come out of her shell!
I know she did May-belle, and Jess and I are gonna get her back for it!!
SHE STOLE MY TWINKIES!!
Well you're really good at art...FOR a boy at least
This happened after they made Terabithia and are now making a treehouse together to defend themselves against the 'squogres'. Here Leslie really let her imagination go wild!
Ok, ok truce.
Wow you’re really good at that, for a girl at least
Leslie dies at the end and leaves Jess but she has changed his life for the better. She truly helped Jess and left him being imaginative, having a heart of gold and being compassionate! Not only did she change Jess she changed herself and let her be her true self.
