Jealous, much?

So Madison's transferred to Annie's school because they offer French and Japanese (presumably options not available at her nearest High School), then discovers a girl there who seems to be very popular, very sporty AND very intelligent, whose friendships cut across social groups.

I get the impression that to her, the revelation about Annie's anatomy (and the cheer team not caring) was just the icing on the cake.

She strikes me as the type who simultaneously doesn't really want to fit in and resents having to go to the school (despite it presumably being her decision to go to pursue the subjects not available at her previous school), while also hating that she's not automatically as popular there as at her previous school. Teen Logic 101...

@mittfh: I am basing this off of my high school where the 'smart' program of IB in my school imported people from around the city of Calgary to let them take second language courses.
Edit: I'm incapable of second languages so I couldn't do the full IB program, I only did like half the courses. I'm not Annie smart.

Pretty sure Madion just wants to get through high school and be done with it. Complications are already too much to deal with, let alone bothering to be too angry about Annie's issues.

Usually I would be all upset at people getting upset about Annie's state, but really, Madison just doesn't care much beyond 'Im going to extricate myself from the situation'. Seems like a pretty solid response to me, as opposed to 'Im going to aggressively attack this person'. Which, I mean, she technically sort of did try, but not very hard, so it was really a spur of the moment power trip.

Ah teenagers.
