Aubrey Shepard is a girl with strong opinions about a lot of things. When her family decided to give up their comfortable lifestyle and move to the "sticks" of Odyssey, Aubrey wasn’t happy about it. Still, she respected her family enough to endure it. Aubrey was hired at Whit's End, a perfect place for her to ask the many questions she has on just about everything.
Not many people tell Liz Horton what to do. Liz often lets her emotional get the best of her, and she acts with her heart instead of her head. In fact, once she almost lost her best friend Mandy because of it. But when her father lost his job and they ended up homeless, Liz began to soften up. Liz is a bit of a tomboy who loves the mall, writing for the school newspaper and, of course, a good argument.
