She is old enough to learn who are her friends and who isn't. Sad but it is something she has to learn.

As long as they're not influencing her into bad decisions like drugs, sex, alcohol, or illegal behaviour - then she needs to learn herself what to look for in a friend. My eldest made the same decision year after year to befriend the 'troubled' kids, and after being hurt a few times (both physically and emotionally) because she couldn't "Keep up" with their behaviours, learnt that she needed to 'attract' new people. Let her learn :)

She will learn, all you can do is give her advice. i always told my kids, one day you gonna realize who are your real friends.
