Have you looked into whether she might have ADD? ADD is very very often missed in girls and the first visible signs of it (to the family) may be anger, depression, possibly difficulty at school (though some ADD girls get very good grades) and acting out at home and/or school. Please consider it!
BTW, just because there are family stresses and issues doesn't mean that all of the problems are due to the divorce/blended family etc. My own family of origin was a divorced/blended family and everyone blamed my problems on that and on my food allergies. Big mistake. If I'd known then what I know now, I may have done much better in college, instead of getting so overwhelmed and dropping out (and I got straight As in high school, too).
