Even though she can be a bit annoying, she is the only sibling and even family member that Jess has a good relationship with. She adores Jess and wants to follow him around. Jess finds this annoying, but yet he is very defensive of May Belle when Janice Avery steals MB's twinkies on the school bus. After Leslie's death, he introduces the magical world of Terabithia to Maybelle. He recognizes she is the only one in his family that shares his imaginary and creative side.
