That's what it finally boils down to. I try and I try."

What would have ever made me think that teachers wouldn't hear about this, too? After all, it was all over the school. Another teacher agreed. "Natalie always seemed like such a nice girl." But I am a nice girl, I wanted to scream."
Author: Siobhan Vivian
