Melinda’s guidance counselor calls her parents to inform them about Melinda’s continued low grades. Her parents yell at her at dinner, but Melinda does not respond to their questions. They ground her. That night Melinda writes a runaway note, but her mother finds her hiding in her closet. She intentionally scratches her wrist with a paperclip and her mother notices at breakfast the next morning. She tells Melinda that she does not have time for this kind of behavior.
