P4C - A new friend

Imagine you move away from your best friend and your Father, who is an inventor, designs a machine that can scan personalities. After school you arrive home to find a stranger with the same personality as your best friend, sat on the sofa. Can this person replace your friend, even though they share the same personality?

These are the questions the groups came up with after reading A New Friend by Jason Buckley.
