New girl Kenzie is raw, defiant and challenging. She is damaged but deep down has a massive heart in exactly the right place. Kenzie comes from a deprived background, rejects authority and implicitly doesn’t trust adults, especially men. Kenzie’s manner is charismatic rather than confrontational but divides pupils when she first arrives. Most of the time she doesn’t waste energy on bolshiness and bitchery, she just lets her actions speak for themselves. But sometimes her low self-esteem fires a short fuse and, when she loses it, stand back. She will stand up not just for herself but for anyone she feels has been wronged. In this she will come to share mutual ground with Vaughan and Lorna and become one of the school’s biggest advocates.
