Caitlin (Lindsay Felton) is a troubled girl who has bounced from one foster home to another after her father leaving and her mother's death. Her pain is hidden by a tough exterior and troublemaking, which eventually leads to her getting kicked out of Catholic school. Instead of going to a juvenile detention center, she decides to move to Montana with relatives who don't know she exists. As the three seasons progress, she learns to adapt to the place so foreign to her and work out her problems, as well as build connections to the people around her.

* ClearMyName: Subverted in "Making Allowances". Caitlin is falsely accused of stealing 200 dollars from a department store and it looks like she's guilty for sure when the money turns up in her bag.

** FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: The above also deconstructs the "you can't run away from your problems" moral by seemingly suggesting that if you're falsely accused of something, you should just run away and not even bother trying since no one will "ever" believe you, in the hopes that something will work out on its own (which doesn't always happen)...

* GenreSavvy: Caitlin picks out the members of different social cliques at her school in High River after spending about a minute there:
-->'''Caitlin:''' There's the [[JerkJock jerk with his brother's car]], there's [[BigManOnCampus every girl's dream guy]] and ''there'' is [[AlphaBitch every guy's dream girl]]. Here's the guy [[{{Nerd}} no guy or girl ever wants to talk to]] and ''(turns to Griffen)'' here is the guy whose biggest concern is sitting at the right table.
** WrongGenreSavvy: Two of the people she mentions turn out to have HiddenDepths that she wasn't aware of: The JerkJock is actually a JerkWithAHeartOfGold who is implied to be abused by his father and the AlphaBitch is actually kind of a LovableAlphaBitch once she and Caitlin get to know each other better.
