As is Emily. Is she bitchy, an alcoholic, and a nasty teacher? Yes. Is she also isolated, lonely, and just desiring love and friendship? Hell yes.
Whitney. Her stepmother locks her in the closet for a day and a half. Why? Because Whitney made plans with a friend without asking first. Fortunately, Daria comes to rescue her—all the while Whitney is still insisting it was her fault!
Add Gail to the list. Her farm was completely destroyed in the tornado, and her father has vanished without a trace, probably dead.
