Consequently, Angela becomes a bit skeptical about her friendship with Zoe and her skeptism lingers throughout the novel.

As Zoe becomes more codependent on Doug, Angela becomes more aware of her lack of attraction to her boyfriend Logan. Angela later admits that she doesn't really like Logan as a boyfriend to Maddie and eventually breaks up with him.
Maddie surmises that Jana started the rumors about Angela. Therefore, Maddie decides to embarrass Jana by making an announcement essentially calling her a liar to the whole school. Regardless of Maddie's request to leave the matter alone, Angela breaks into Jana's house and leaves a note suggesting that Jana's room has been searched. Angela later finds out that Logan was cheating on her with Jana while they were dating. Zoe is reproached by Doug for being too "codependent" and Angela for being passive after not avenging her when "Jana placed" a dead bird in her jeep.
