My now 13 year old daughter went through a similar phase. For starters something else might be at the root of her meanness towards the family. Maybe a lunch date or some one on one time to see if you can find out more. Also another angle might be validating her emotions of being angry, although you can discuss better ways of coping with her emotions. Rather than taking it out on the people she loves. Good Luck!
