As a young child, I was always the little girl on the playground with only one or two friends. Being shy was probably part of the problem, but popularity was the major issue. Unfortunately, this status has followed me through middle school and into my high school years. There is an excessive number of cliques in high school. Some cliques are based on social class, style, race, and athletic and musical interests. Those who are not part of a clique are considered the "outcasts" and are the targets for criticism and harassment.
