* CloudCuckooLander: Caitlin, full stop. She's smart in some areas, and in some areas not so much, like friendship. She is extremely picky about the clothes she wears, she has non-mainstream tastes in entertainment (she likes cartoons, her favorite being ''Disney/{{Bambi}}''), and [[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness talks in big words]].

Caitlin Ann Smith has UsefulNotes/AspergersSyndrome (and she claims [[InsistentTerminology that she's not autistic]]). She hates colors with the reason that they "run into each other", she is very picky with the clothes she wears, loves drawing, sees a counselor at school, and is friendless. Her only true friend is her older brother, Devon, who helps her out with whatever confuses her. Unfortunately, he dies in a school shooting along with two other people, leaving her and her father grief stricken. Caitlin doesn't like what his death brings, and life becomes even more confusing and complicated. With Devon no longer there to help her and her dad doing nothing but sit around and cry all the time, she decides she has to find something called ''closure.'' But she doesn't know what closure is and how to find it.

* NoIndoorVoice: Caitlin believes her classmate Emma is loud and annoying, but since the story is told from her point of view, we don't know for sure whether she's actually loud. She is, however, very outspoken.

* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: Caitlin is not very well liked by her classmates, and unfortunately for her, she unknowingly tends to bring it upon herself because of her BrutalHonesty and her inability to understand that some of her actions are inappropriate ([[PoorCommunicationKills which would have been rectified if people actually taught her the right ways to socialize with people]]). Josh has it the worst, because [[spoiler: his cousin is the one that killed Devon and two other people at the middle school, and to his classmates, he's guilty by association.]]
