You'd Better Hide the Bullets


Scarlett's life is uprooted from New York to San Diego just as she's beginning her last year at high school. She quickly gets off on the wrong foot with the worst people in school and has to make a choice, beat them or join them.


Jaime Preciado

Jaime Preciado

Jaime is the muscle of Vic's group. He is usually found beating up some kid for their lunch money or making some kids life a misery. He doesn't really have much time for anyone who doesn't like his friends and tends to follow the crowd but as he notices things begin to change as the new girl arrives, he has a choice to make.

Mike Fuentes

Mike Fuentes

Mike is Vic's little brother, pulled into the popularity and bullying. Mike hates being the way he is and wants to change it. When the new kid stands up against his brother he sees that as an opportunity to change things around Mission Bay high school.

Patrick Stump

Patrick Stump

Patrick is your typical geek. He loves comic books and old rock bands. When he sees the new kid standing up against the school bullies he finds himself drawn to her. He thinks she will be good for him, even help him stand up for himself and get them off his back.

Scarlett Jones

Scarlett Jones

Scarlett is a typical teenage girl who likes music, nerdy TV shows and keeping everything simple. She moves to San Diego at the beginning of fall in her last year of high school but soon meets the locals, the school bullies lets say. She begins a war against them, not letting them mess her around but things don't last that way forever.

Tony Perry

Tony Perry

Tony is the quiet one of the group but he's just as dangerous. His anger problems make it hard for him to make any friends so sticking with Vic and his group is his only option. It's not all bad though, at least they all have one thing in common. Disliking everyone.

Vic Fuentes

Vic Fuentes

Vic is the most popular guy in school, guys wanna be him and girls wanna date him but he's just an all round asshole. Well you would think from the things he does to people.
