In the last chapter, the characters all reflect on and deal with the loss of Leslie in different ways.  Jesse wonders if the magic of Terabithia will still be there.  He is upset by Leslie's death, and thinks about how he does not want to die himself.  He wonders about her last moments, and if she was scared.

Jesse's teacher consoles him, and tells him that it is ok to remember her.  Leslie's parents do not want to remain in their new house because being around so many reminders of Leslie is too painful, so they are moving.

Jessie does return to Terabithia, to get his paint set but also to see if the magic is still there.  He is both curious and nervous.  He decides to move on, and does so by bringing his little sister May Belle to Terabithia with him, to share the magic with her.
