14-year-old Krystle has been living in a group home in Manhattan since last summer. She never expected to wind up in "the system," but when conflicts between Krystle and her mother reached a boiling point she found herself separated from her family. In her radio story, Krystle documents what life is like in the group home and how she might be able to move back to her family.

Your story is really interesting I actually had a cousin in a group home before she past. I like when you mentioned that your whole family keep all this anger inside of them; Thats like me at the end you explode on whoever is around.
