Mrs edmunds is the apple of jesse’s eye’s, he is in puppy love with her. He loves her because she is the only one who appreciate him and the things he does
when jess ran in the race he was supremely confident that he would win, but by the end he was intimidated and humiliated. Quote: There was no cheering at either end of the field. The rest of the boys seemed as stunned as he. The teasing would come later, he felt sure, but at least for the moment none of them were talking.
jesse cut-off him family from being involved in his personal life, but deep down he know he loved them. Quote:When he was in first grade, he told his father than he wanted to be an artist when he grew up. He'd thought he would be pleased. He wasn't. 'What are they teaching in that damn school?' he had asked. 'Bunch of old ladies turning my son into some kind of a—' He had stopped on the word, but Jess had gotten the message.
Quote: Jess would tell himself, me and Miss Edmunds. Beautiful Julia. The syllables rolled through his head like a ripple of guitar chords. We don't belong at Lark Creek, Julia and me. "You're the proverbial diamond in the rough," she'd said to him once, touching his nose lightly with the tip of her electrifying finger. But it was she who was the diamond, sparkling out of that muddy, grassless, dirty-brick setting.
Jesse was invited to go to the art museum with miss Edmunds he knew to go even though he had hard feelings because Leslie wasn't coming. When he got back he had self condemned himself. Quote: It didn't occur to him until the car was past Millsburg that he might have asked Miss Edmunds if Leslie could have come, too. When he thought about it, he couldn't suppress a secret pleasure at being alone in this small cozy car with Miss Edmunds.
Jesse took maybelle to the castle of terabithia because he had been so distance from her ever since Leslie passed away he felt delighted that he made maybelle feel really happy and joyful. Quote: "Shhh, yes. There's a rumor going around that the beautiful girl arriving today might be the queen they've been waiting for."
