Tianna’s Struggle

“You all do not understand. All y’all want to do is judge me!” screamed Tianna as she flung herself at Dean Addison.

“Do whatever you want to do with me, I deserve it anyway. I just don’t care anymore.” The thunderous hammering in her head crescendoed and it felt like someone had drawn curtains over her eyes. Tianna is a popular thirteen-year-old middle school student who must make an important decision about her life. The people who she once trusted are now her biggest enemies. When the skeletons in her closet are exposed, it is only God’s grace that can help her face her accusers.
