You've captured the angst of the teen who doesn't fit in very well. Touching story. The last line got me!

Fortunately, God does see even the most awkward of his children. I want so much to give her a hug and tell her this is not forever.
This could be autobiographical for a lot of us writers! Very compelling piece, and I love the movement in it

lovely....i wish you had given her a name... she repeated seemed so sad and maybe this as deliberate to make her that generic character.... but personally prefer named people in stories.... and the writer can have such fun thinking them up!
It is hard for a person who is confident in themselves to understand why someone who is tall and smart to feel such rejection, but if someone teases a young child they can end up seeing themselves as everything you described in your story. The ugly duckling syndrome is what I call it and they usually become introverted instead of outgoing. Thanks for sharing.
