My friend and her family.

I have a lot of friends. Most of them are my former school-mates. But my bosom friend is Lena. She is 16. Lena is not very tall, but she is pretty in her own way. She has brown curly hair and dark-blue eyes. Her face is oval and she has a turned-up nose. She is pleasantly plump. To cut the long story short— Lena is a pretty girl. But in my opinion, inner beauty is more important than physical one. Lena is a well-bred jolly and kind person. She does well at school and is always ready to help her friends to cope with difficult home assignments.

She is fond of reading books. Lena thinks that one book isn't enough to read, she has two or three books going at once. My friend has a lot of books at home and she buys them wherever she goes. They are of great help to her. She knows much and it is interesting to spend time with her. Lena goes in for sports and she is a member of our school volley-ball team. Our coach says she is a very gifted sportsman.

Besides, my best friend is fond of music, especially classic one. She plays the guitar and is a soul of the company. She is in habit of helping her parent, because they always have a lot of work to do at work and about the house.

Her duty is to do the shopping after school, to clean the flat and to keep her room in order. She is a sunny soul by nature. My best friend has an imagination and her own style. Usually she writes wise compositions.

Lena and me are good friends. We help each other a lot and try not to quarrel. But when sometimes it comes to quarrelling we try to make it up at once.
