Story intro

Teenager Maggie Thompson moves with her mother Erica to her Ohio hometown after Erica's husband leaves her. At high school, Maggie befriends Andy Hawkins, Haley, Chaz and Darrell, who invite her to drink with them. They convince Sue Ann Ellington, a veterinary technician, to help them buy alcohol. Sue Ann anonymously reports the teens' activities, although they are let go due to the officer's history with Andy's father, Ben. The next day, Sue Ann invites the teens to drink in her basement and many people from school show up at her house to party, making Sue Ann popular among the students. However, her hospitality starts to annoy the group as she continuously harasses them to engage in various activities with her. Maggie and Haley suspect that she stole jewelry from them during the parties while they were intoxicated so they go to her house to investigate. They are surprised by Genie, Sue Ann's daughter from a failed marriage, whom Maggie believed to be a wheelchair user, though she is clearly able-bodied. Genie warns them as Sue Ann arrives home and they narrowly escape. Ben warns Sue Ann to stay away from his son and it is revealed in a flashback that Sue Ann, who had a crush on Ben in high school, performed fellatio on him in a closet. However, it is revealed once she leaves the closet that she has actually done it on another young boy without knowing. Ben had the entire school, including a young Erica and Mercedes, his current girlfriend, witness the event, causing Sue Ann great humiliation.
