This book was a good example of a realistic fiction because it seems like something could happen. Child fight with their friends and they make up with them too. The characters in this story were little boys and the way they acted was similar to that of little boys people see every day. This book is about two friends who are mad at one another and they are talking about what they are going to do to the other but at the end they do not want to be mad at one another so they make up and go off to play together.

James used to be my friend. But today he is my enemy.

James and John are best friends -- or at least they used to be. They shared pretzels, umbrellas, and even chicken pox. Now James always wants to be boss, and John doesn't want to be friends anymore. But when he goes to James' house to tell him so, something unexpected happens.

A friend who always wants to be the boss, a friend who takes all the crayons, a friend whom you wouldn't consider having the chicken pox with - this friend is an enemy.
