Cry me a friggin river... a 14 year old empties her bank account (and as you can't work at that age in NL, that was someone else's money), bails on her family, friends, relations and decides to start anew with a guitar and suncream...??? Her "dream" has been shattered. Oh my, what is one to do! Suck it up and move on - that's life. Everything is a concession to something or someone.

14, alone, flying half way across the world is not your stable, grounded reaction to this. It'll be nice in a few days when the parent's begin to get a stench around them and are finally shown for what they really are - manipulative, glory seeking, societal rejects that don't have the balls to live their own adventure but try to do it as a surrogate with their own kid. If it was a "dream", don't ya think she could wait a couple of years?
