Character Notes

Rory (Aurora) Conway — age 17, girl, outstanding student, second-string football kicker, secret lover of video games, not too popular among other girls. She likes Maxwell, but he doesn’t know that.

Adell Baldwin — age 17, Rory’s best friend, very popular, IM-obsessed, “like way into” IMing, literature, and Latin.

Stewart Ward — age 17, a girl far more popular with teachers and the principal than with students, especially boys, socially inept, with a weak spot for guys like Tod.

Maxwell Fitzpatrick — age 17, a gifted student with an artistic bent, who doesn’t care much for school, which he feels has little to teach him, and has never had a real girlfriend. He likes Rory, but she doesn’t know that.

Tod Darnell (alias Tod Dellnar) — age 17, student at Wiley Prep when the story begins, a ladies-man wannabe, egotistical, with a domineering mother (Morgan Darnell).

Kyle Thompson — age 17, Maxwell’s closest friend, inattentive in class, popular among guys, likes acting cool, talks like a slightly burnt-out druggie.
Suzy, Stacey, & Sophie (girls) — full of spirit, very perky with a literary bent, envious of Rory.

Stevie, Sammy, & Smitty (guys) — full of attitude, but they go with the flow, friends of Maxwell.
Victor the Voice — age 17, Wi-Hi student, never seen, whose monotone voice makes football game and
school intercom announcements.

Mrs. Morgan Darnell — age 50, land speculator, CEO of Suburban Sprawl, member of the Wileytown School Board, and Tod’s mother. She bosses Lance Langston around, and thinks she controls her son, Tod, whom she has kept out of the public schools.
