Despite never having gone on a date before, Dakota Nelton was determined to take a girl to his homecoming dance. However, the girl he invited rejected him. Worse still, it happened in front of a group of students. And before he’d even recovered from that humiliation, he was confronted by a group of girls.
There can be a lot of pressure on teenagers just to fit in at high school. You want to feel accepted by your peers, of course. It’s a difficult time of life for anyone, but it can be made that much easier knowing that you have friends and allies on your side.
Dakota Nelton was a student at the H.L. Bourgeois Braves high school in Gray, Louisianna. As a sophomore, he’d been attending the school long enough to have made friends. Nevertheless, by his own admission Nelton was far from the most popular student.
