Taylor at 13 with her friends in Wyomissing. Probably the girls that were mean to her. She said in an interview that even while they were being mean to her, she was still desperate to be their friend. There were at least six of them though. That's how many of them she said she saw at the mall with her mom that time that she mentions in The Best Day. I think that was right around the time she wrote The Outside as well.
