NaNo help needed!

My teenaged heroine is happily ensconced in a girls-only boarding school (or will be, as soon as I write that part). But she's a runaway who's never felt like she fit in, so - being the mean author that I am - I don't want her to be happy. So I need something to give her feelings of guilt and shame and force her to run away again.

Thoughts? I was thinking maybe she naively helps someone hide on the school grounds, thinking she's doing them a favor (she's a charity case herself) and they end up burning the whole place down or something. But that idea's not really clicking.
