|“||The North star. It's the only star that doesn't move. Everything else spins around that.||”|
— Sarah in The Forbidden Zone
She is the stunning, vivacious queen bee of OBX, alongside her golden-boy ex-boyfriend Topper. Sarah comes from the Kook world and is frequently scorned by The Pogues for her reputation as a princess but there is more to her than meets the eye. She is quick-witted and warm-hearted and despite the odds she catches the eye of John B, becoming involved in an unforgettable adventure.
Sarah grew up on the wealthier side of the island in Figure Eight and thus is considered a Kook. Her father is a self-made entrepreneur and built the family business from the ground up. Sarah describes him as being like John B when he was younger.
Sarah has an older brother, Rafe, and a younger sister, Wheezie. She lives with her father and her stepmother, Rose, with whom she has a relatively strained relationship. She is close to her father and says that she can't imagine life without him.
In the ninth grade, Sarah was best friends with Kiara, but the friendship ended abruptly when Sarah began to feel claustrophobic in the friendship. She has had a number of boyfriends in the past but no relationship ever lasted. Prior to the pilot she started going out with Topper, who is also a Kook. Sarah is interested in the environment and has an easy-going and fun-loving attitude.
Throughout the Series Edit
At the beginning of Season 1, Sarah is dating Topper, another preppy Kook. He tells her he loves her but it's obvious that her heart is not in the relationship.
John B convinces her to go on an adventure as part of the hunt for the gold, and she goes because she seems bored and wants some excitement in her life. She ends up really enjoying her time with John B and they kiss at the end of their adventure after John B confesses his feelings for her.
She ends things with Topper and starts to date John B. She helps him with the hunt for gold and her father even adopts him, to get DCS off his back. Eventually, Sarah realizes her father is not who she thinks. Ward frames John B for Sheriff Peterkin's murder. Sarah desperately tries to set the record straight because she sees that her brother Rafe is the real murderer. No one believes her, so she helps John B run away and they escape on a boat together.
The boat capsizes and they almost die until a passing ship saves them and offers to bring them to a nearby dock so that they can continue their escape. They find a boat and they let them aboard. They eventually learn that they are headed to Nassau, The Bahamas, which is where Ward Cameron sent the gold.
Sarah and Topper dated for a long time before the series started, and they had professed their love for one another. He was often possessive over her and worried not only for her well-being but also about her interactions with other men - particularly, John B. Their relationship drama was stirred up by Wheezie, Sarah's younger sister, who planted doubt in Topper's minds about Sarah's faithfulness. This led to Topper interrogating Sarah every time they were together. She eventually couldn't take it anymore, which is around the time she grew closer to John B. She did cheat on Topper with John B as the two kissed and hung out under the radar despite her still being with Topper. When Topper found out he was furious with Sarah and lashed out, calling her a whore and refusing to see reason. He got drunk and confronted the new couple which led to John B falling off of the tower and breaking his wrist. Topper and Sarah didn't talk for a while, however, he remained bitter over the way things ended between them. In an attempt to prove his love for Sarah, he disguised himself as John B so the real John B and Sarah could escape the police.
