Things changed in seventh grade. Her closest friends had moved away, and she was being bullied. “She went from an extrovert to an introvert,” Sands said. “There was a certain group of girls who just hated me,” Burns said. “One day, me and my friends were walking down the hall. A whole group was lined up across the hall so we couldn’t get past. We tried going to the left. They slammed me against the locker. It felt horrible.” After trying home-schooling, Burns enrolled in October at the public charter school Maine Virtual Academy, where students take classes online. So far, it is working well, her mother said.
