Shy sixteen-year-old Stacy Collins can’t believe that the most popular guy in school, an attractive athlete named Bobby Tennison, is interested in her. At first she is flattered by his constant attention, but then he becomes possessive and jealous, telling her who she can speak to and what she can wear. Threats escalate into violence when he thinks she has stepped out of line. Soon she is walking on egg shells and living in fear. Having seen the tell-tale bruises, her best friend convinces her to break things off with him, but in a moment of weakness, she goes to meet him.

User Reviews: I found this story to be heart breaking. I’ve seen that many people commented that Stacy was stupid for staying with Bobby, but most people who are in abusive relationships stay because the abuser usually psychologically abuses them, as well as physically. The thing is that some people don’t know if someone is being abused unless they come out and tell someone. And it wasn’t too uncommon for her not to tell her mother, because at that age teenage girls usually feel a distance from their mother or parents. This is a true story, based on actual events. It is important to remember that, but Sally Jessie as the judge was trying to convey a message, both to her friends and to the viewer, that if you know someone that is going through this, to speak up before it’s too late.
