lord he was tired there isn't a bone in my body that doesn't ache.
Jess, Stood there just staring.
Hi, Im Leslie Burke
Jess sat at the table after his running practice hot and sweaty "lord he was tired, There wasn't a bone in his boy that didn't ache" This shows that jess is hardworking and doesn't give up even if it hurts alot.
Jess Went outside to do his chores when he met Leslie "Jess stood there, just staring" I Would say jess was a little it confused and a bit surprised because nobody really ever talked to him let alone leslie would become his best friend
your friends dead
"She gave him a look with those blue eyes of hers that makes him zing like the guitar strings she strummed" Jess feels like he belongs with miss Edmunds and he feels happy and like he belongs for the first time in a long time.
"Jess pumped his arms and bent his head for the distant fence" Jess Is Determined to win the running races. jess likes to win is very proud when he does.
"Brendas Pouting Voice Broke In, Your Friends Dead" This Is The Moment as Jess realised his best friend was gone, this was a sad moment but also a happy moment jess learned the importance of friendship. he has learned alot through out this book, at the start he was a very retreated person he didnt like to share his feelings in case they got hurt, but after meeting she taught him imagination and to trust overall jess has learnt alot.
