Unlikely Friendships

The school bell clangs for a new period. History, art, music, math, chemistry, physics, every class filled with different classmates and (sometimes clashing) personalities.

School is here and with it the chance to make friends! Sometimes it’s by choice, sometimes it’s by chance.

Some friendships seem fated to occur. Others seem like they’ll never go beyond a terse “Hello.” Check out the titles below to explore how unlikely friendships can blossom into deeper bonds despite discouraging first impressions.
