Posted by Iredell-Statesville Schools at 10/2/2014

You and your best friend Jessica are in 9th grade.  Jessica was in love with Darren, but after 3 months he broke up with her.  She is now devastated.  She cried herself to sleep every night for 2 weeks.  In the third week, she found out that he was starting to date another girl at your high school.  She was enraged.  Jessica wanted to hurt them as much as they hurt her. So Jessica decided to spread a really bad sexual rumor about them.  In one day, it spread through the entire school and Jessica was happy to see that it hurt their reputations. 
What would you do?
