Tween/teen girls are more emotional as their homones change.
Remain calm. Give her eye contact and listen.
Sometimes the drama gets pumped up to get attention or to make the situation seem more serious.
Just try to listen with your full attention, empathsize and feed back what you heard her say.
If the drama continues (screaming, heavy crying) pretend like you can't understand what she is saying....she may calm down enough to make sure you can understand what she is saying.
