Last Saturday was best-selling YA author and vlogbrother John Green’s birthday. It got me to thinking that yes I’ve done a Marry, Date or Dump on boys from his novels and yes I’ve done one where you could choose between Green and other YA authors, but I haven’t made a post for the girls from his books. I chose the ladies from his most famous books (Looking for Alaska, Paper Towns, and The Fault in Our Stars) but if you want to swap in Jane from Will Grayson, Will Grayson or Lindsey from An Abundance of Katherines then go for it! Lots of people criticize Green’s books for buying into the manic pixie dream girl trope. I would argue that he takes that theme and adds layers to it … but that is probably a topic for another post. I really love his female characters for being intelligent, independent, and most importantly for never forgetting to be awesome.
