According to pretty much everyone that knows Allie places her under the categories of a loner, or a bottom feeder. She can't go anywhere without someone she knows calling her a 'Lesbian', not that she has a problem with that choice of lifestyle but herself isn't one of them. She learns to ignore----well, cope with how her peers treat her until the new guy shows up. He decides to help her out, but it might just cause him his entire reputation. But it's a risk he's willing to take.
