The Battle School does not seem to allow any of the students/soldiers to have any personal effects [even their "desks" do not belong to them], so do "friends" become more important in this situation? Does Ender have any REAL friends? What makes you think so?
Because we are all in different places in the book right now, try to answer without giving away the ending if you have finished the book--or at least note a SPOILER ALERT if you are going to give something away that could spoil someone else's reading pleasure, OK? Enjoy the week's reading, and don't forget to post once in response to THIS entry and then once again in response to a classmate this week before Saturday night, OK
