quote:"We need a place," she said, "just for us. It would be so secret that we would never tell anyone in the whole world about it."It might be a whole secret country,"
I'll name him Prince Terrien and PT for short
It's Leslie's first day at lake brook elementary, she looks different to everyone else and is nervous but excited for a fresh start. she stands there awkwardly waiting for the principal and teacher to tell her where to sit. she is being brave and it also shows that she is willing to try something new for, her parents.
everyone hates me!
Are you alright?
jess and leslie find a rope that crosses a river. Jess is worried that the rope will break but leslie is bold and daring and thinks it will be a lot of fun.jess ends up agreeing and they cross the the river and name the place Terabithia. Leslie is developing because she is being brave and helping Jess concur a fear.showing she cares about jess and is a good friend.
Thats a real steady hand Jess. An artist hand, right?
Jess got Leslie a dog for Christmas to show his appreciation for what Leslie has done for them. this is character building for Leslie because Jess is giving her a Christmas present which shows that Jess cares about her. which would then make Leslie feel happy and that Jess cherishes their relationship.
quote: There was no mistaking the delight in Leslie's eyes. She dropped to her knees on the coldground, picked the puppy up, and held it close to her face.
quote: "If she's crying, there's gotta be something really wrong." "Well, what are you planning to do?"He blushed. "I can't go into no girls' room." "Oh, I get it. You're going to send me into the shark's jaws. No, thank you, Mr. Aarons."
Jess hears Janice crying in the girls bathroom and sends Leslie in to see if she's ok. Janice is crying because her father beats her and it was so bad that she told people she thought were her friends and they told the whole 7th grade and now everyone knows. This means Leslie is helping others no matter what they've done to her or others. she is treating everyone equally and showing compassion.
Leslie invited Jess over for a bit. But they ended up painting a room. this helped Leslie develop because her and Jess had been friends for awhile and now she anted her parents to meet him. At first I think she might have been worried but then as time went on and everyone got along things were better and more comfortable
quote:"You're amazing," Bill would say. "where did you learn that, Jess?"
