Manicpixiedreamgirl by Tom Leveen (Book Review)

Title: manicpixiedreamgirl by Tom Leveen
Publisher: Random House
Release Date: April 23, 2013
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Drama
Medium: Paperback ARC from Random House Publishers

Manicpixiedreamgirl was an absolute joy to read. It was so much more than expected. What I expected, was a lovey-dovey teen novel like any other romance/drama novel you pick up in a bookstore. What I read instead, was an in depth story of unrequited love, tangled with lies, mistrust, passion, friendship, and not real love. You have a boy who thinks he's in love with this broken girl at first sight, yet is too confused on his feelings to decide whether or not to break up with his possibly too-caring girlfriend. Enter friendship and misread feelings when the girl turns out to be the one thing he told himself she'd never be. He saw what she really was, but told himself it could never be true. Until her got close to her. Real close to her. And everything began to make sense. But with these mistakes and lies came honesty and trust.

The writing and characters in this book were breathtaking. Tom Leveen is (once again) fantastic. His writing is wholesome and natural, and very easy to understand. The writing was flowing, dramatic, and very addicting. His characters were relatable and the plot could very easily be the tale of someone's life. This is what made it so hard to let go of. This book swept me away. A great book with perfectly imperfect characters that tug at your sense of reality. A very good book. Five stars. (5/25/13)
