How many grams of fat and calories should a 13 year old girl eat?

My friend is 5’2″ and she is 120 pounds. She is starting to count calories and grams of fat per serving and I was wondering how many of each she should have per day to lose weight (thats her goal) and how many calories she should burn everyday to lose weight.
Please don’t say anything like, oh your too young to worry about this, I want a straight answer thanks.

    check with this daily calorie need calculator, based on age, weight,

    Keep total fat intake between 20 to 35 percent of calories, with most
    fats coming from sources of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids, such as fish, nuts, and vegetable oils.
    This refers to percent of total daily calories — not calories from
    each food item. So, if you consume 1,800 calories a day, you should have no more than 70 grams of fat a day. (35 percent of 1,800 calories = 630 calories, divided by 9 [calories per gram of fat] = 70 grams.) 45 to 65 percent of total calories should come from carbohydrates
    (carbs).

    it’s great that at your age you supervise your eating: not too much, not to little, but just right. Eating habist die hard, and overweight children grow up into overweight adults.
