New Beginnings, not always so good

I had one other friend in Gr9. She was a hockey player, so spent most of her time with the hockey team. She was a good friend, but I still wanted acceptance.
We had a family friend whose daughter, Lucy, I had known since birth. She is one year younger than me and we always got on great. She attended another school though. Her school sounded fun and apparantly the clicks weren't as prominent as the school I attended. So, at the beginning of Gr.10 I decided to move schools.
Now, when I had started Gr.8 I hadn't exactly been a beauty. I had had very very curly hair, which I didn't know how to manage, braces, and no fashion sence what so ever. But by the end of Gr.9 I had discovered straighteners, make-up and fashion. Oh and my braces had been removed.
So when I started at the new school, I suddenly got noticed. I was the 'new girl'. Good or Bad?
I didn't know how to handle this sudden popularity, so in my case it turned out very bad.
