Hi it’s Giles here. I was a newcomer to Sunset Cove and there’s always the problem of finding new friends. I have some great friends now so here is my guide to friendship.


What is a friend?
A friend is someone you like to spend time with. Often you like spending time with them because you have shared interests or you both share the same humour. You might be going though similar times. Friends are there to support each other. If one of you has a problem then a friend is always there to help you get through it.

Plus spending time with friends is so much fun! Going to a move, sharing pizza or a coffee. Trying something you’ve never tried before!

Friends don’t have to be exactly the same. Friends have similarities but they also have their differences. Friends can introduce you to new things you’ve never even thought of.

Sometimes people claim to be your friend but it may be that they are only interested in something else. It pays to pick your friends wisely because sometimes they can take advantage of you.

Sabrina likes money so she was happy to be friends with Josh Montana because he had lots of money. She will also want to be your friend if it suits her like when she helped Giles dish dirt on Octavia.

So how did I make friends?

I was the outsider when I moved to Sunset Cove – I was considered a “weirdo” just because I wasn’t like everyone else. Basically I was the normal one – everyone else was nuts!! Sure I didn’t have a great tan, a rich family, or great looks but I have other qualities.

When you decide whether or not you like someone it shouldn’t be based on what you can see from the outside. Many people have great hearts, humour, brains and none of that you can see. You need to talk to people and judge for yourself.

Famous Friendships

  1. Laurel and Hardy
  2. Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn
  3. Salt and Pepper
  4. Salad and Salad Cream
  5. George Clooney and Mark Wahlberg
  6. Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum

I first made friends with Beanie – it was easy to be friends with Beanie – he was an outsider too, having big ears and being an alien certainly isn’t normal. Our common interest was that we were both outsiders and we understood how each other felt – we also both liked checking out the school’s groovy chicks, like Octavia!
