Imagine this: You’re 16 years old.

You’ve moved to a different district and it’s your first day at school.

You walk into a cafeteria full of strangers. One friendly teen walks up and says hello. You grab on to this person like bark to a tree.

Dozens of other kids go to this school, but they don’t appear as nice. They don’t smile as broadly and you haven’t heard great things.

Your friend, however, is thoughtful, funny, dependable, and he pumps up your ego. He’s your best friend for years, until one day, he isn’t.
