Janet Parsons is a sophomore at West Hartlin High School. She moved to the city 2(?) years earlier when her dad got a job there, and she loves it. She is a bit of a joker, although she is USUALLY careful not to let her pranks go too far, and she is a star on the track team.
She cannot bring herself to retire her favorite pair of shoes. They are literally held together with duct-tape, staples, and love.
