Once upon a time, there was a young girl with no parents, and a little sister to care for.
Her name is Diane Tran, and she is a high school Honors student who works 2 jobs to pay for her schooling, and financially support herself and her little sister.
This young girl’s heavy academic load (because not only is she an Honors student, she is also taking advanced-level college courses), and her demanding work schedule sometimes means missing classes due to exhaustion, emotional turmoil (a result of both her parents having abandoned her and her little sister), or sudden changes in work schedules at jobs she cannot afford to lose.
Young Diane is stressed beyond her years, and carrying a load no average 17 year old can manage. But she struggles on, determined to make it work. And with the help and encouragement of her teachers, social workers, and the community at large, this admirable young girl is able to persevere.
But along comes a big, bad wolf.
His name is Judge Lanny Moriarty.
He is a heartless wolf with sharp, super-white dentures, and he wields a big gavel which he likes to bang down on his perceived throne.
This time, however, Wolf Moriarty banged his big gavel right down on a struggling young girl’s life.
