Believe it or not

My friend was telling me about the massive drug problem at her high school. I wondered if it was hard to be in the middle of that—and if she felt pressured to join in because “everybody’s doing it.”

“I’m not ever gonna feel pressured to do something I don’t want to do,” she texted back. “So, no.” Then she sent along a string of little laughing faces.
