Role in the story Edit
Chelsea is first
Initially introduced as a fashion-loving teenage girl, Chelsea is revealed to be a rude, demanding, bossy, self-centered, egotistical, and ill-mannered person with no qualms of her actions, whether at the expense of humiliating Carter and Rosie or ordering Margaret around and is implied to have controlled the entire student body. Moreover, she can be scathing and vituperative when things doesn't go her way.
Her friendship with Brooke, though not stated outright, could have been formed by peer pressure, as Chelsea most likely used her father's status as a method for gaining popularity. It's also implied that she made Donny and Bull into her flunkies and told them to ignore Carter. Eventually, Brooke had had enough of her attitude and breaks up with her for good.
It's also quite clear, Chelsea's sense of right and wrong deteriorates near the end of the story , as she is unwilling to accept defeat and resorts to stealing Rosie's homecoming crown, but is unmatched by the latter.
In a sense, Chelsea is what Rosie and Carter would have been if she isn't kind to others.
