  • Lauren Amrine, 19, wipes tears as she explains how all her $400 a month she makes working part-time at a coffee house goes to the family to help pay bills. "My senior year was a mess," said Lauren who didn't go to her prom and is now attending Sacramento State. Sisters Teagan Sherr, 13, left, Kristin Sherr, 15, center, and Megan Amrine, 18, right, all help pack up one of their bedrooms that Lauren and Megan share. Their mom Cindy Amrine insists it didnÕt need to be this bad. In a lawsuit filed this week in Sacramento Superior Court, she argues that Bank of America foreclosed and sold her house at auction in late April even as she was about to complete a short sale, in which the bank had agreed to take less than what is owed on the mortgage.

  • Megan Amrine, 18, who is just finishing up her junior year at Antelpe high school is worried about where the family pets will live as she snuggles Bandit as they face eviction.

ÒItÕs overwhelming,Ó said daughter Megan Amrine, 18, a senior at Antelope High School who, like her older sister, captained the girls basketball team. ÒI have strong faith in god that heÕs not going to let us go out o the street. I try not to be a negative person. But IÕm a little depressed. Sometimes I cry about it.Ó Photo taken June 18, 2013 in Sacramento, CA.
