I found the Southern Accents in this story charming. The subject matter is complex, but it seems heartfelt. I wouldn't say there is "no favor" there, though. I found myself surprised by the revealing high school hi-jinx, it felt like a tale from another era. I am sorry your main character had to move away from her dear friend, and lost her chance at academic excellence. It doesn't seem, though, that she even considered college. It did strike me as a perfect cautionary tale, please don't let me discourage you, in any way.
