Sarah Cameron, a formal ‘Kook princess’ admits to John B in season one that she is miserable in her life, and desperately wants “to get out of the bubble wrap before it is too late”. Rafe Cameron, sibling of Wheezie and Sarah Cameron, the ‘Kook King’ that comes from a wealthy family, is seen struggling mentally, without any support from his parents, Rose and Ward Cameron. Even Ward is seen fighting his own battles, especially in season three, when he tries to right his wrongs with his daughter, Sarah.
