I'm so proud of the very mature way you are dealing with your relationship with your mom. I'm also glad that you brought support (your friend) with you too. It'll be a constant process, but it will be worth it for both of you.
Regarding the issue of your friends and prom night, if it's over, I'm glad. But like Lynne said, it doesn't count as resolved if you stew over it and still feel betrayed. If so, it might be worth it to talk to your friends. It sounds cheesy, but if you use "I" statements (i.e. "I feel hurt and betrayed") it really does go more smoothly.
Whatever you decide, I hope you have a great summer. Will you get a chance to hang out with your senior friends over the summer? Are you working? Do you have a friend away from home that you can visit for a while for a change of scenery? By the way, how are things with your sister? Have you talked to her the way you have with your mom? Maybe the three of you could do something special together this summer?
Anyway, keep us posted. I think we're all a little jealous of your summer break!
