”We went to a small high school in the country, where I knew one person who was a family friend. I hung out with her and her family friends.
”But they turned out to be the really cool, bitchy, terrifying girls and I was a nerd, but they didn’t realise for the first little while.
”After I’d been there a few weeks and hung out with them uncomfortably on the edge of the little group, they took me one lunchtime to a group of other girls who were much quieter, much nicer and nerdy and said this to me. And they left me there.
