How do you feel about the whole mean girl/boy theme?
This is a classic theme, especially in YA stories. There has been some good stuff that uses this as a theme, but overall? Over-used. Super over-used and in some ways not realistic.
Why not realistic? Sure there are some mean boys that I would go to school with or meet and some were attractive. However, I would never fawn over them and wish they were not mean to me. No. Sorry. When people are mean you do not or should not want to date them or be friends with them or even be in the same room as them. Not a real thing at all...at least maybe in my world. Not sure how others feel.
Also, I feel like it is over-the-top. I was bullied in school, but even my bullies were not as MEAN as these type of characters.
Sometimes the whole theme can be interesting, but 8/10 times it is over-used and not realistic or even over-the-top.
What do you guys think?
