[Referring to Vanessa's suicide attempt]
I guess I'm just wondering if anyone has any feelings about what she did.
Um, Vanessa and I have been friends for, all our lives, and I just wish I could've done something to help her.
That is such crap!
Excuse me Emily!
Stacey drove Vanessa to it. She humiliated her. She practically drove her out of school

I usually have much fun in deriding all of the bad Lifetime movies that my wife watches all the time. I caught this one about 15 minutes in, and kept watching too. It was pretty good. The acting is decent, and the director and writer do a good job of spacing out and escalating the bullying that the girl endures. I thought it was also good how the main character, as she keeps getting bullied, continues to try to find a way back into her crowd. Because, it's realistic. People put up with all kinds of crap to get accepted into a clique. And, the mom's performance was solid too, realizing too late but trying everything she could be figure out why her daughter was getting more and more upset. Good flick. I'd watch it again.
