Never "pick" a parent. One might want you to, or both may want you to, but NEVER pick one. It will not only destroy your relationship with the parent you didn't pick (if they find out) but also come to hurt you later on.
Any good pair of parents will know this and try their best to avoid it, but it often happens and is emotionally devestating to their kid (s). Parents just divorcing alone hurts a lot, so try your best to talk with someone about how you feel and come to terms with it all. It's not your fault, but I think having any (negative) feelings about the divorce or against your parents is letting it win; try to stay happy and positive and go about your life as normally as possible.

I'm really sorry to hear that you're going through this. Always remember that it is NOT your fault. EVER! Regardless of which parent you end up living with, don't treat either of them as evil people. They're going to be confused, upset, and disappointed just like you are as well. Maybe I'm being a little bit ahead of the game but watch out for your parents, especially if they start engaging in self-destructive behavior. Like sleeping excessively, drinking heavily, etc. I'm not sure of what the story is behind the divorce, but don't make things worse by siding with one parent and treating the other like a criminal. That's not cool. Don't ever hesitate to reach out to someone for help, whether it's for you or for your parent.
