Step-Family Drama: Who Deserves a Mention? 🎤

In a whirlwind of divorce, remarriage, and an influx of step-siblings, our 18-year-old protagonist is caught in a family feud. When her school interview goes viral, her parents are furious that she didn't mention her step-family. Instead, she chose to honor her biological parents, her brother, and two lifelong friends. Her parents accuse her of provoking them, demanding an apology. But she stands firm, with her big brother backing her up. Now, she's contemplating a move to her brother's place, leaving us all wondering: Should she apologize or stick to her guns? 💥

NTA, parents being petty. Move in with brother and be happy 😊
