She's the type of girl you notice right away.  Designer clothes and very sure of herself.  When Val meets her at the rodeo, they become fast friends.  It doesn't hurt that Liberty is attracted to Val's brother.  At school, all Val's friends instantly like Liberty.  All except Ryan.  Val can't understand why Liberty and Ryan don't like each other.  They are her two best friends and she wants them to like each other.  But there is something about Liberty that Val has yet to learn.  And it isn't pretty.
