I think that t is kind of a little bit of both I think rather way they would be sort of friends maybe not as close but also I believe that if a friendship was ment to be then it will happen. Maybe they wouldn't be friends thought because maybe Jeffry wouldn't have talked to Tad if it wasn't for the fact that he could tell he had cancer too.
I personally think that Jeffery and tad wouldn't be as good of friends if they didn't both have been through cancer. I think this because first of all they were put to sit together because they had cancer and they may not have met if it wasn't for that. Also they wouldn't have a lot in common if it wasn't for cancer. I mean they can understand each other and what they went through. That is why I think Jeff and Tad wouldn't be buds if it weren't for them both having cancer.
I think that either way Tad and Jeff would be friends, I mean just because they both had/have cancer doesn't mean they can't be friends and it's just so happens that they have something in common...having cancer.
I think they wouldn't have even met if they didn't both have cancer because they were put next to each other in class because of that. If only one of them had cancer, they wouldn't talk to each other that way. In fact, they would probably ignore each other if that was the case.
I think that without having cancer in common that Jeffrey and Tad would not be such close friends because then they wouldn't have the laptops to talk with each other. Also they wouldn't be such close friends if Jeffrey didn't make that comment saying that he had cancer too when Tad first came into the class. I don't think that they would be friends if they didn't have cancer in common.
I do not think that Jeffery and Tad would have had this relationship if they didn't have cancer. They both understand the way each other think and how each other act if they didn't both have cancer. They can also face any problems that they have with a group. For instance, if any of them got bullied, then the other would be at there at the others side in an instant. The only reason that Tad and Jeffery are friends is that they both had cancer.
I they both did not have cancer ever I personally think they would still be friends. The reason why is not what happened to them but their personalities and that is what made them friends. I think it is not their ability that made them spend so much time together because if they did not like each other then they would stop seeing each other.
I think Jeffery and Tad wouldn’t be friends if they both didn’t have cancer. One reason is that the year Tad was a new student the teacher placed him next to Jeffery, only because they have a connection with cancer. Another possibility might be that is people with similarities are connected to each other more easily. It is possible that people who are different can be friends. But I think this relationship wouldn’t work out.
Well yes and no. They only met because the teacher places the new kid with cancer with the cancer survivor. If tad wouldn't have had cancer then the teacher most likely wouldn't put him with Jeffery. They met because of cancer and that is what sparked their friendship. They also could have met and not have had cancer and turn out to be friends again.
Well in my opinion I think Tad is a very tough person to deal with. I mean he is constantly being sarcastic and cracking jokes that are sometimes mean and hurtful and he is really hard to deal with...! I think that the only reason that Tad and Jeffrey are so close is because they basically spend every minute of the day together since they have to use laptops and since they can't do much since they have something wrong with them from the chemotherapy or something like that!
I dont think they would because in the book it says that they met because Jeffrey told Tad that he had cancer to.And from then on they became best friends.And they wouldnt have too much in commen if they didnt.
I don't think they would be have a close connection because to me tad seems rather obnoxious but Jeffrey understands because hes dealt with it. But at the same time he is a good friend because not all people would have tutored him
Umm let's see...I think that they wouldn't be REALLY good friends. I just think that they wild be pears. This is because, you can tell that Tad has a sharp tone and I wouldn't think that Jeffrey and tad would get along as good.
I don't think they would really be so close if they didn't have cancer in common. Since they both had cancer, they both understand what cancer is like. Jeffery and Tad would have kind of a hard time making friends that haven't understood what they have been through. Some people might not respect that they might not be able to walk right or other affects from the cancer. I think Jeffery a
(I didn't finish typing the last thing) I think Jeffery and Tad shoud stick together. They can joke Around about stuff easier because they feel more comfortable with some one who has been through the same pain.
I don't think that they world be close friends at all because having cancer is their bond. It's not that they don't have a lot in common but having cancer is what started their friendship so I think that it wouldn't have started without it. Also their unique relationship is why they are so close because in this case opposites attract.
No. I think this because Jeffrey started the realashionship with saying I used to have cancer to. If that didn't happen then it would have change the whole story. Or at least in my option. Maybe it's because it's the teacher putting them next to each other in the first place those are the main reasons. Mostly the cancer one thou because Jeffrey could have said that to Tad at anytime.
I think that Tad and Jeffery are such good friend they fill out a team. Jeffery is the more soft side and Tad has more guts and can me meaner to more people. Also oppsite meet and they make a goos team. But having cancer in common makes them connect more then they would of if they had not had that in common. That is why I think that Jeffery and Tad are such good friends.
I dont think they would be friends. I dont think they would be friends because Tad isnt really friends with anyone other than Jeffrey. If Jeffrey didnt have cancer or Tad didn't I dont think they would have any thing in common or a reason to be friends. They wouldnt be friends unless they met eachother in 4th grade. That is why i think Tad and Jeffrey wouldnt be friends if they didnt both have cancer.
