The boy who called Billy is interested in ballet.He is crazy about ballet.And he wants to be a ballerina.I think this is very good.There many person who do not understand Billy and who make a fool of him.But there many kind person who understand him and support him.I can sence human's kind.This story depict human's kind well.

Eleven-year-old Billy is different from other boys.He is not so clever or good at sports.So he has few friends.One day, he got interested in ballet dancing.But normally ballet dancing is for girls,not for boys.His family don't understand him but he want to dance...This story is good.Billy is a nice boy.He was not interested in anything but after discovering ballet dance,he began to change his character and made an effort to be a good dancer.He cheered me up!I want to set my goal in life and work hard to achieve it as Elliot did.
