I think that people are capable of change because change is not a hard thing to do. As long as you believe you can do it you can. If you put enough effort into changing then, it will happen.
Do you think Bailey deserves a second chance if she is truly making an effort to change?
I don't think that Bailey deserves a second chance because she hurt a lot of people's feelings and made them feel bad by spreading rumours. She also didn't listen to her friends when they told her to stop. Even if she does change I don't think anyone could trust her.
What would it take for Bailey to regain Maya's trust and friendship?
I think that Bailey would have to keep a secret to regain Maya's trust. If she wanted to regain Maya's friendship, she would have to she Maya that she can be very friendly and trust worthy. Than once she can do that I think Maya will be her friend again.
This story relates to me because...
At the beginning of the story you learned that Bailey is a chatter box and I talk a lot too. I also think this story relates to me because sometimes people tell me rumours. But when I hear a rumour I don't pass it on, like Maya. This story also relates to me because if someone was telling a rumour about me I wouldn't be very happy. And finally this story relates to me because once someone had to give me a sorry letter because they hurt my feelings.
