Taylor is one of Simon's classmates and the lead actress in the school production of Oliver. Though she's an exceptional actress, singer, and dancer, and is also blond and beautiful, Simon insists she has a dark side: she often makes comments about her own superiority that make a point to reinforce others' inferiority. However, she also becomes extremely emotional and runs after the bullies who wave homophobic signs at Simon during rehearsal, and Abby tells Simon she thought Taylor was going to punch the boys. At the talent show, Simon discovers that Taylor is the lead singer in the band that Nora and Leah are a part of. Despite these positive attributes, Simon remains firm in his belief that Taylor is exhausting and too perfect for her own good.
