When I was in college I dated a guy who always checked that I was listening closely before making proclamations like “Dead flowers are more beautiful than live flowers.” After learning my building had roof access, he insisted we sit up there one night and chain-smoke Marlboro 27s. “You’re never open to what the world is telling you.” By “the world,” he obviously meant himself.

I was too anxious that my super would find out, and he was disappointed. If the world was telling me anything, it was Dump this idiot.

I’M NOT YOUR MANIC PIXIE DREAM GIRL is the first young adult contemporary release from Gretchen Mc Neil, the author of TEN, POSSESS and several other titles.

When the novel begins, the main character, Beatrice Giovanni is entering her senior year of high school.

(“He had a tattoo of a deer woodcut with a banner that said, ‘Stay Hungry,’” recalled my friend Jenna, 31, of her MPDB.

“While we were making out he kept the poncho on that he got in Guatemala during his gap year,” said another friend, Margaux, 28.) Back when I was in school, he listened to Panda Bear; ten years later, as a late-20-something, he listens to Getz/Gilberto — on vinyl, obviously.

Whether they’re walking around strumming a ukulele or making mix tape after mix tape, they don’t do much else.

But admit it: there’s at least one MPDG that you would try to go steady with.

Rabin has since expressed regret for coining the term but, despite his wishes, it looks like the “Manic Pixie Dream Girl” is here to stay and is becoming as clichéd as the girls the term describes.

Long story short, a MPDG is an exceptionally quirky and eccentric force of femininity usually used as a Mary Sue character in films to ameliorate the life of the Brooding Male Lead.

I was also really interested by the addition of formulas to the plot.
