WHAT'S GOING ON? - LATOSHA'S STORY

Latosha was a 15-year-old girl who lived in the Midwest.

Her parents had recently divorced, which forced her to move to a new community of 3,000 people. She hated the small town atmosphere, and didn't make any new friends. Her sister Tiffany, her 'only' friend, was going away to college in the fall, which made her feel even worse.

Latosha was having trouble sleeping, her grades were falling, and she was crying almost everyday. She tried to tell her dad and new stepmom that she was feeling terrible, but they said that things would get better if she would just give it some time.

She gave her sister her birthstone ring, and said she wouldn't need it anymore.
