Benjamin Bryce is a nearly-fifteen-year-old boy from Nowhere, New Jersey. He likes chocolate, drawing pictures, and looking down on his peers with his best friend Mark Rogers. He doesn't like sports, examining his sexual orientation, or being forced to dress in drag.
Jack Sullivan hails from Benny's hometown, but through a series of miraculous coincidences (namely, going to different schools) did not meet him until they roomed together during their freshman year. It's Jack's first year at Roseview, and he finds himself in the shadow of his well-liked and high-achieving older brother. He comforts himself with the thought that he will ruin the Sullivan reputation before his younger sisters get to Roseview. He likes to read comic books and date mannish girls.
Juliet fled to Roseview Academy this year seeking to escape her evil twin, Miller. She has a unique sense of style, a loose sense of ethics, and a theatrical approach to life. Her emotions range from "mildly disturbing anger" to "cheerful insensitivity," blithely skipping over "remorse," "sadness," and "sympathy."
Mark Rogers likes to think he is dark and mysterious, and maintains this aura by sulking in corners and keeping unnecessary secrets. He has little interest in having a social life beyond his best friend Benny, but finds one thrust upon him regardless. Often rash and curmudgeonly, Mark has a poorly hidden softer side. Just don't call him Percy.
Melissa Garibotti has been living on the sidelines of Roseview society since she got there from Italy two years ago. This year she's determined to push past her shyness and get to know everybody. Melissa enjoys spelling, school work, being busy, and, thanks to her new roommate Juliet, schlocky horror films. Aside from the occasional stress-induced breakdown, she's the best friend you could ask for.
