I’ve got your science test scores here. Our new student, Mandy, is the only one who scored 100 percent.

If you want to make a friend, be one.

Hi. Your name’s Audrey, isn’t it? Is something wrong?

I flunked the test. And my dad says if I don’t get my grades up, I can’t have tennis lessons.

Ouch! That’s rough. Umm, listen … would you like to study together sometime? Maybe I could help.

You’d do that for me?

Sure. Why not?

Maybe you can teach me to play tennis. It looks fun.

Yeah, I think you’d really like it.
