Quote #10

They gave Jesse all of Leslie's books and her paint set with three pads of real watercolor paper. "She would want you to have them," Bill said. (13.63)

Even though Leslie's no longer there, she's still able to give Jess one last push of encouragement. Through her parents' gift of resources and supplies, she encourages Jess to keep learning, thinking, and drawing. While Jess doesn't have Leslie to tell him stories, he'll have her books, where she found those stories, to inspire him.
