Jess was running in the field like he had done every morning because he wanted to be the fastest kid in the fifth grade. Then he had met his new neighbor Leslie who had introduced herself to Jess.
Jess and Leslie had built this magical kingdom where magical things would happen. This was also their secret place together. This is called Terabithia.
This is Janice Avery and one day after school she had fallen down. She was embarrassed so she had blamed it on Jess so Jess had to walk home.
Jess was asked to go to an art gallery by his teacher Miss Edmunds and Jess really likes her.
While Jess was at the art gallery with Miss Edmunds Leslie had decided to go to Terabithia by herself. It was a rainy day and Leslie had swung across the rope and then suddenly the rope snapped. They think that she had hit her head on the rock and she had died.
Since Leslie had died and she was queen of Terabithia, Jess had asked his sister Maybelle to take over for Leslie and be the queen.
