Bridge to Terabithia Summary Konon Matsumoto Chapter 1 Jess Aarons, an eleven year old boy, lived in a country farm with his parents and 4 sisters. Jess Aarons has a big dream to be the fastest runner in third, fourth, and fifth grade. Everyday at recess there is a race, and now that Jess Aarons is in fifth grade and is the oldest in elementary, he thought he might win. So in the morning he practices running at the cow pasture. One day, when he goes to his house for breakfast after running, Jess’s sisters, Ellie and Brenda were begging for money so that they could go shopping which left Jess and his mother to do all the housework. At the end of the chapter, Jess’s youngest sister, May Belle brought news that a new family had moved in next door. Chapter 2 After Jess finishes housework with his mother, he makes a dinner for his younger sister and for himself. Then he lays in his bed and starts to draw. He has a talent in drawing crazy animals. His talent was usually not appreciated, expect for his music teacher Miss Edmunds in Lark Creek Elementary. Jess only shows his drawings to her because when he showed his drawings to his dad, he got mad. So she is only the one who loves looking at Jess’s drawings. Jess’s chore is to get Miss Bessie’s (the cow) milk. So next morning, when he tried to get the milk he heard voice that said, “If you are so afraid of the cow, why don’t you just climb the fence?” That was the first time Jess met Leslie Burke, the new neighbor next door.

Jess didn’t see Leslie again until the following Tuesday, when Mr. Turner brought her to Mrs. Myers’ fifth grade class, which was the same class as Jess in Lark Creek Elementary.

But Jess let Leslie run and she was in the 4th group, same as Jess. When it was the 4th heat Leslie lined up beside him. Lesile won the race. At the finals Leslie won again and she was the champion of third, fourth, and fifth grade. At bus Jess was very disappointed so he sat next to May Belle, which made Leslie sit somewhere else. Chapter 4 Jess felt each day was getting worse because Leslie kept on joining the boys at recess and everyday she won. It was Friday and Miss Edmunds was back so Jess was a little happy. During music class when they finished singing Jess smiled at Leslie and she smiled back. He felt that it was fine to be friends with her. In the bus Leslie sat next to Jess. Leslie talked about Arlington and why she came here. She also said she came from a rich place and the reason why she moved here is because her parents thought they are too hooked on money and success.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
