Description

Sometimes the most dramatic scenes in a high school theater club are the ones that happen between the actors and crew off stage.

Seventeen-year-old Tyler Darcy's dream of being a writer is starting to feel very real now that he's sold his first short story to a literary journal. He should be celebrating its publication with his two best friends who've always had his back, but on this night, a steady stream of texts from his girlfriend Sidney keep intruding. So do the memories of his dream girl, Becky, who's been on his mind a little too much since the first day of high school. Before the night is over, Ty might just find the nerve to stop all the obsessing and finally take action.

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 11, 2013 – Tyler Darcy has been obsessed with Becky Webb ever since glimpsing her in all her tattooed, ringer T-shirt wearing glory freshman year. Never mind that he doesn t exchange words with Becky for an entire year or that he gets a girlfriend, Sydney, in the meantime. The adorable eccentric sweetheart who dazzles a broody male lead, is how Sydney defines the manic-pixie-dream-girl stereotype; Becky isn t that girl, but Tyler is fairly happy to let her be, idolizing and idealizing her rather than getting to know her. Leveen s (Zero) story unfolds mostly in flashbacks to Tyler s freshman and sophomore years; the present-day action takes place on the very drunken night when Tyler is forced to decide where he stands with Sydney and Becky. The time shifts give the story a cinematic sense of tension, but it s the relationships between the novel s teenage characters that are the real standouts. Tyler s crass banter with his buddies, his snarky but supportive relationship with his sister, and his botched dealings with both Becky and Sydney are entirely realistic. Ages 14 up.

Customer Reviews

Nice read

I purchased this book because I really liked the author's first book called Party, and even though I liked Party a lot better, MPDG was still pretty good. I really enjoyed it :)
