There are really dated pop-culture references. The prudish boring Elizabeth soon realises Suzanne’s unrealibity and lack of integrity and decides that there must be accountability for the devil in disguise Suzanne. How Suzanne and her pointless plotting is unmasked is ridiculous and the inappropriate teacher carries on being inappropriate. This was trite, badly written and full of unsubtle foreshadowing. There was a sequel ‘Special Christmas’ where the pariah Suzanne returned to town on a normalisation agenda after becoming good and everyone forgave her.
“This crummy little cowpatch.”
“We could listen to the stereo or something.”
“Don’t be so crass.”
“Miss Good-As-Gold Elizabeth Wakefield.”
“I’d rather have a rattlesnake for a friend.”
“Maybe I can crack her angelic veneer after all.”
“Guess you really showed Suzanne up.”
