- Designated Villain: Most notable with Esperanza. She's gay and Latina, but the other LGBT/POC characters treat her like a clueless interloper at best, who's overstepping bounds when she does anything other than keep quiet and listen. When a gay Latino teenager is killed by police, her hurt and confusion are answered with "glares" from the other characters. When she's a victim of police brutality herself, and is described as scared, breathless, and crying, the protagonist's reaction is to think "This was what it took....He didnt know if it was enough."
