  "Savannah Smoking" 13 year old Savannah on the day before she is to be placed into a group home for 18 months. Savannah's mother works at a local McDonalds and was often unaware of Savannah's truancy, until child welfare intervened and threatened to charge Savannah's mother with educational neglect. The mother agreed to let Savannah go under New York State's supervision to avoid further legal involvement with the family.
