Maybe she just needs attention or maybe it's peer pressure. Sit down and talk to her tell her you won't get mad and ask her why she's been doing this and if she does any of this again you won't be able to trust her again. ( If you say it nicely she'll probably cry and apologize).

wow this is hard I am sure my daughter is 11 and has attitude which is normal her age but what is not normal is to let her get away with it...I suggest you stand your ground because this appears to be a game of tug a war...Be consistent with what you say and do...ground her if she continues with bad behavior...reward her with good behavior such as good grades completing choirs etc..a reward doesn't have to be monetary but a kind word or gesture...what standards you set now will determine your child future and how she matures and handle situations..
