Katie was born in New York, however, moved to Miami at the age of eight. Katie didn't take the move well as she was upset about leaving behind her friends, family, and house. Not long after the move, she continued third grade at a new school called Iridium elementary school. There she met her best friends Maddie and Sophie and was also- at the time- friends with Emma and Andi. A month before the first book started- she was raped by an adult man and fell pregnant.Every witch pregnancy

Katie's underage pregnancy
Katie's pregnancy at fifteen was caused by being raped on her way home from the movie theater. In the first chapter, Katie had been shy to ask Lily for a pregnancy test. When her pregnancy was confirmed, she burst into tears but refused to be picked up or to skip class. Katie told her parents and her father straight off wanted her to have an abortion which Katie didn't want. Her parents were fighting about it until Katie snapped at them to shut up. She asked her mother if she hated her, her mother replied that though she and her father were disappointed in her, they could never hate her.
In the second chapter, Katie announced she wanted to have an abortion. Later in the chapter, she changed her mind deciding she wanted to keep her child. She soon decided to go with adoption and found a family in the fifth chapter.
In the first chapter, Katie confided in Maddie about her rape and pregnancy. In an attempt to be supportive, Maddie orders her to come over to her house and pick-out one of her outfits to keep. Earlier that day, Katie had lied to Maddie when she had asked her if something was wrong by saying it had been nothing more than an argument with her parents.
In the second chapter, Maddie was shocked to hear Katie say she wanted to have an abortion. She harshly asked her why then kindly told her she would support her no matter what.
Emma and Katie had once been good friends in elementary school, however, at the start of tenth grade they weren't friends anymore. The reason was never really explained. In the first chapter, Emma found Katie crying in the bathroom and asked her if she wanted to talk. Katie confided in Emma about her rape and pregnancy. Emma let her know she wasn't alone by telling her about her pregnancy and that her father and boyfriend didn't know. Katie asked her if things would get better and Emma replied she hoped they would. They then share a hug- both girls were crying. Later on in the chapter, Katie joined Emma for lunch at school to thank her for talking with her and comforting her in the bathroom.
In the second chapter, the girls shared another personal moment at the park. Katie confided in Emma about second-guessing the abortion because it wasn't something she had ever seen herself doing. Emma asked her if she had talked to anyone about this and Katie replied that she hadn't.
In the eighth chapter, Gigi comforted Katie who was finding it hard knowing she was giving her baby away. Katie asked what kind of person would give a child away, and Gigi told her “the kind of person who has a heart so big it's giving her the strength and love to give the baby her best chance.”
Katie's relationship with the group
In the second chapter, a misunderstanding happened in the hallway. Katie- who had been walking with Maddie and Sophie- waved to Emma. Emma waved back to her and Maddie thought she had been waving at her, so she waved back to Emma. Emma thought about striking up a conversation with them but went against it. She changed her mind while walking away but it was too late, Maddie and Katie had disappeared with Sophie.
The first time the whole group hung out was in the second chapter during a school lunch period. Maddie was already going to eat with Katie- along with Sophie- and Diego had asked her to invite Gigi to join so she did. She bumped into Emma and Andi outside the cafeteria and decided to invite them to her lunch party and they accepted. Katie talked with the girls about their so far baby decisions and got to see Gigi punch a girl in the nose for calling Maddie a slut. Gigi said she had done it for them all.
In the third chapter, Katie had invited all of the pregnant girls to her house. They hung out in her bedroom and talked about who the temporary guardians of their children would be. In the next chapter, Emma hosted a sleepover with the pregnant girls at her house but there wasn't a whole lot of talking as they went to sleep pretty early on.
In the sixth chapter, attended Maddie's sleepover with the other pregnant girls and they talked about personal things. Gigi said they were becoming connected but not exactly as friends. In the seventh chapter, the girls started hanging out in order to become friends. In the next chapter, Emma broke into the council building with the other girls in an attempt to steal Phillip's case file which she didn't find. They were caught by Ramona but Emma managed to talk them out of trouble. Later in the chapter, Emma and the other girls had a sleepover and they each said something about their newfound friendship. Katie said,
The birth of her daughter
The adoptive parents had backed out a week or two before giving Katie no time to find another family. Katie welcomed her daughter in the final chapter and after having met her, Katie couldn't give her up. She decided to keep her baby girl and made a deal with her parents.
