Jennifer was ready for a change. Since kindergarten Cheryl had been her best friend. But now they were going into the eighth grade. While they were still great friends, Jennifer realized their interests were changing. After school Jennifer liked to play sports. Cheryl preferred to go home, practice her music, and read.

How would you feel if you were Cheryl and Jennifer told you she wanted a change? What other conflicts might good friends have as they get older?
