Ruth-Ann is Lizbeth's doppelganger-like rival; her blonde hair is even parted on the opposite side to Lizbeth. Where Lizbeth is spunky, Ruth-Ann is a shrinking violet. Where Lizbeth is straightforward, Ruth-Ann is the queen of the backhanded compliment. Worse yet, Ruth-Ann has Milo wrapped around her finger, and she strings him along like she does all the other boys in town. Ruth-Ann makes Lizbeth seethe, and more than once Lizbeth has voted not to rescue her nemesis because Lizbeth knows if Ruth-Ann runs off with Milo's heart, she'll just break it. So she fights Ruth-Ann for her square-shaped boy every time. She is the most popular girl at school and tells people what's hot and what's not.
