And why not put her friends in the honey jar too? Or work a honey jar on her, and a separate one on her friends.
Then again, if this is a sudden personality change, get her checked out. She's still a minor and you have the responsibility to look after her health. If this is something that happened out of nowhere, she may have a medical issue going on that neither you nor her may know about and she may not have the language or skills to ask for help.
When I worked in a hospital, one of the doctors told me that until only about a generation ago, undiagnosed thyroid patients tended to end up in mental hospitals! Yes, even relatively common and strictly physical problems can lead to mental disturbance. Mind you, I'm not a doctor. Please check this and any other possibilities out with an actual M.D.
On the spiritual level, you might want to do a little work with St. Dymphna or Dr. José Gregorio Hernandez, to make sure her mental health is in order and she gets an accurate diagnosis if she needs it. At any rate, if this trouble really is coming out of nowhere, do see a doctor, at least to rule out mental disturbance.

Sometimes the teenage defiance and tantrums are the equivalent of a little child's biting and scratching -- fighting back against frustration in the only way they know how. School is a rotten place to be for many kids. I'm a high school dropout myself -- I was miserable there. Besides reading, most of the useful things I've learned in life were not learned in school.
