There was a boy named Jesse. One morning he went to run. When he came back into the house, breakfast was started. He saw a U- Haul pull into his neighbor’s abandoned house. He wondered who was going to live there now.
A couple days later Jesse goes to milk the cow when he sees a girls sitting on the fence. She introduces herself as Leslie. She moved into the Perkins place next door with her two parents.
A couple days later, Leslie shows up in Jesse’s class and starts waving and calling his name. She sort of embarrasses Jesse.
At recess, Leslie races Jesse and beats him. He gets mad, but is impressed.
Leslie and Jesse become friends and find a hideout in the woods. They have to swing on an old rope across the creek to get to it. Leslie and Jesse agree to call it the kingdom of Terabithia. Leslie is queen and Jesse is king.
Jesse has four sisters. Brenda(15), Ellie(13), May Belle(5), and Joyce Ann(1). A mean eighth grader steals May Belle’s twinkies, so Leslie and Jesse get revenge on her by writing a fake love letter from Willard Hughes.
