Best friends Tiffany Kahl and Michelle Morneau be not traveling any farther than across the highway, to Kingwood Community College.So many locals land there that it be known as 13th grade.The conversation moves on to boys.Lori describes the special issues involved in dating two at the same time, especially when one of the guys is a way-buff Abercrombie model.The girls snort and titter and segue into gossiping about other people's boyfriends.they be reliving a tradition from senior year, when every morning the gang of four and other members of their tight, popular, kinda-preppy clique, which included a cheerleader, a golfer, and a student-council member, would gather before classes and chat.A week after the dinner at Ninfa's, police arrested Michelle while she was riding in Lauren's car.In addition to Morneau, police arrested two 17-year-olds, Katie Dunn and Malissa Lisa Warzeka, and the 16-year-old alleged ringleader, Krystal Maddox.Weeks after the arrest, D.W. Smith, one of the two undercover cops in Ninfa's, would describe Michelle Morneau as nothing but a little gangster. He also said she had a butch starburst tattoo on her back.Michelle Morneau met her boyfriend in rehab.Though she smoked pot and sometimes came to class smelling of it, she be not in the hospital for a drug problem.During June of 98, she checked herself into a Houston-area facility to get an eating disorder under control.At her daily group sessions, she hooked up with a drug user from another suburb.They dated sporadically that fall.By the time they broke up, soon after homecoming, she, like her boyfriend, was using cocaine.Friends say that pressure from her strict dad may have added to Michelle's obsession with her weight.When she was younger and heavier, she felt compelled to stay slim and make A's.Michelle notched a decent GPA and after fifth grade she kept the weight off.For a time she had a healthy way to cope : running.By freshman year, she was on the cross-country team, one of Kingwood's perennial state-champ squads.Michelle had grown up in a suburb with a royal name surrounded by a psychic moat.By design, Kingwood is a private island, with limited access to the outside world.Exxon's development subsidiary, Friendswood, created the town wholesale 28 years ago, carving an instant suburb for oil-biz execs from 14, 000 piney acres by man-made Lake Houston.Developers coined a nickname-cum-sales pitch for the town : The Livable Forest. Home buyers who entered through one of the few access roads to Kingswood encountered a green maze of subdivisions that had 60 miles of bike trails, seven golf courses, two country clubs, and a single enormous high school at its heart.It had eight apartment complexes, but most residents lived in houses, which skewed toward big and expensive.Each of the 21 neighborhoods actually had a designated price range for its homes, some of them worth more than $ 1 million.there be still a wood placard on the main drag, Kingwood Drive, that ranks the villages by market value.By sophomore year, the coach's high expectations had soured Michelle on cross-country.Around the same time, her parents' fractious marriage finally died.Friends say Michelle and her mother were both happier once Dad moved out and remarried, but it also might have downsized Michelle's ambitions.While Dad owned a Maui condo, Mom was a special-ed teacher.Michelle would be working her way through college ; she knew she would be going to 13th grade.
