In a school such as Andover, a student like Kelly has a lot of strikes against her before she even walks in the door as a freshman. The teachers are a virtual gossip machine, the juicier the news the better, and Kelly's life has definitely been juicy. The precedent her brothers have set for her is one which will be very difficult for her to overcome. However, I feel that Kelly is a strong enough person to beat these odds if she keeps herself straight and does not slip into the role Andover's teachers have prepared for her. She is heading down the right road at this point. My only concern for her is that she will continue to spend time with the type of friends she has cultivated at the school. At this point they may not be too harmful to her, but as they grow older and more mature, so will their problems. The only advice I would willingly give to her 0 would be. to find some new friends, some individuals who will be a positive influence on her life, rather than friends she is already "expected" to have.
