The girl is experiencing some of what seems to be regular girl drama at school. It’s all pretty much what I remember myself from being in grade 8 with a few exceptions.
Texting changed everything. We used to leave school at school but now everyone has constant access to each other.
She’s way more mature and level headed than I remember being.
But for me the most touching part is that she sits down and talks to me about what is going on in her life.
