My mother told me a good friend is like the same.
I'm quieter and more serious than most kids.
That's why I like reading books and I study harder in school.
My best friend Yuan Li is quiet too, so we enjoy studying together.
I'm shy so it is not easy for me to make friends.
But I think friends are like books
一 you don't need a lot of them as long as they’re good.
It's not necessary to be the same.
My best friend Larry is quite different from me.
He is taller and more outgoing than me.
We both like sports, but he plays tennis better, so he always wins.
However, Larry often helps to bring out the best in me.
So I'm getting better at tennis.
Larry is much less hard working, though.
I always get better grades than he does,
so maybe I should help him more.
I don't really care if my friends are the same as me or different.
My favorite saying is,
"A true friend reaches for your hand amd touches your heart ."
My best friend Carol is really kind and very funny.
In fact, she's funnier than anyone I know.
I broke my arm last year but she made me laugh and feel better.
We can talk about and share everything.
1 know she cares about me because she is always there to listen.
