She went on to say that, “Nikki has been on high alert since she learned that Faith had been acting out with her “bad-influence” friend, Jordan (Madison Thompson). They had been caught drinking a few times and Nikki had many heart-to-hearts with Faith about the alcohol use. Faith feels more comfortable talking to Nikki about these things because of her grandmother’s alcoholism.”
It turns out that Jordan was the person behind the bullying and sent Faith a nasty text right before her rash and brash actions.
