Consider the following about her:
- She was uprooted by her dad at the behest of Connie Poirier so she could have easier access to Elly Patterson.
- This was made easier by the fact that her boyfreind at the time scared the wuss she called a dad shitless.
- She was thought of as a WILD ANIMAL GOING INTO THE DARKNESS!!!!! because she didn't want to indulge the power fantasies and delusions of the one person who's a worse mother than Elly Patterson.
- She was ogled at by that weenus Mike.
- Connie feared and hated her homely boyfriend because a shallow dolt isn't going to get the meaning of the phrase "handsome is as handsome does."
Given that Lynn would recycle her appearance to create Teenage April, I should think that she's the first person to be victim of the "teens are horrible monsters because boomer nincompoops are fragile" trope.
