“The world is a recognizable place: there’s a rich Nigerian kid who lounges around the family pool; a foster girl whose religious parents hide their true nature; a local American politician; a tough London girl from a tricky family. But something vital has changed, causing their lives to converge with devastating effect. Teenage girls now have immense physical power – they can cause agonizing pain and even death.

Per Due Date, the Margot Cleary-Lopez character is the “mayor of Seattle and the loving wife and doting mother to three kids.
