    • Friends are important, you have to no who are going to love you for you.
    • You need to be able to tell someone who is going to support you no matter what your problem is even if your scared at first
    • There are options
    • Its best not to get in those sort of situations first
  • 9. Why pick me ?
    • I am with in age group
    • I have a character that may relate to a lot of teenage girls around the world
    • I think it gives a perspective to adults that we may not exactly like what we are doing but peer pressure is still there and in situations like this teenagers are not being imature mearly trying to make scense of what has happened and what there life will become.
