This move made life a lot more difficult.She was pretty much banned from all sources of food now and had no choice but to follow what her mom did.Carmen started at a new school and got into a group of friends that were considered the “popular” group.She and three other girls thought they were the coolest kids on the block and entertained themselves by making fun of others.They were friends until an incident that had happened at a party.Because of one boy, three girls completely despised Carmen.Her mom had family in this part of town that Carmen always visited.
Aunt Lisa was probably the most inspirational person to Carmen.This was a big problem because Lisa and Carmen’s mom hated each other and never got along.Having Lisa by her side, though, helped Carmen a lot; especially when it came to dealing with life.
