            "content": "<p>When I think of my childhood, two themes immediately rise to the top: movement and books.<\/p>\n<p>We moved a lot when I was growing up. In the beginning it was because my dad was in the military; later, just because we were following (or looking for) jobs. From when I was born in a military hospital in Germany until I entered middle school, we moved nearly every year. I was used to putting all my stuff into boxes, then taking it all out of boxes again in a new house, in a new town, with a new school. Each move brought a different bedroom, a different neighborhood, a different teacher, different friends. My family was strong and constant, but the rest of the world swirled and shifted around us.<\/p>\n<p>I was a quiet kid, shy and introverted. It&#8217;s not easy always being the new kid. Walking into a classroom full of strange faces and being the only kid that wasn&#8217;t there yesterday is tough. Amidst all that change and transition, though, I found a warm and reliable refuge: books. Ah, books.<\/p>\n<p>Every school I attended had a library. Thank God. A room that&#8217;s full of shelves that are full of books that are full of stories. Stories that are diverse and unique and extraordinary and varied \u2013 but are beautifully the same no matter where you read them. Whether I read <em>The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe<\/em> in Spokane, or Montana, or Kansas, Narnia was always in the same place. I could go there whenever I wanted, from wherever I was. Stories always know where true north lies in our interior geography.<\/p>\n<p>I remember vividly when my mom presented me with my very first chapter book to read on my own: <em>The Beast in Mrs. Rooney&#8217;s Room <\/em>by Patricia Reilly Giff, part of the Polk Street School series. I was in First Grade, living in Montana, and I threw myself on my bed and devoured it in one sitting. Not long after that, the boxes came out. We were moving again. We&#8217;d only been there a year and a half but I had close friends and a school I loved and I <em>did not want to go<\/em>.<\/p>\n<p>Kids, though, rarely get choices. Away we went. My first day at the new school, I was sad and lonely. No one invited me to sit with them at lunch (in fact, another vivid memory: they <em>scooted away<\/em> <em>from me<\/em> when I sat down). And then we went to the library. All those books lined up, waiting. And right there on the shelf were the Polk Street School books. Those same crazy kids having goofy misadventures in Mrs. Rooney&#8217;s room. They were right there waiting for me. My spinning compass fell still.<\/p>\n<p>Stillness is underrated. Life is loud, and for a lot of kids the chaos that surrounds them isn&#8217;t all that great. Fighting parents, jeering bullies, police sirens, moving boxes, absent fathers. In a rushed and hectic world, books stand still. They, in fact, <em>require<\/em> stillness. Stories ground you in stillness right where you sit, but at the same time take you safely away to other worlds.<\/p>\n<p>Books are faraway places that we can hold in our hands; they are distant adventures, yet they&#8217;re right there in our hearts.<\/p>\n<p>As teachers, as librarians, as parents, we get to share so much with children. Knowledge. Humor. Wisdom, maybe. And we get to share <em>books<\/em> with them. Stories. Books that may grow to mean a great deal to them. Books that might answer questions they&#8217;ve been holding too long in their hearts, or make them ask questions they never have before. Books that may make them feel things that are utterly new and yet achingly familiar. Books that make them <em>think, <\/em>books that make them <em>feel.\u00a0 <\/em>Or maybe books that do nothing but make them laugh&#8230;and is there absolutely anything wrong with that? Is there really <em>too much<\/em> kid laughter in the world?<\/p>\n<p>It&#8217;s a wonderful gift, being able to share books with kids.<\/p>\n<p><em>I am so sorry about your dog, Lupe. Here&#8230;try this book, <\/em>Love that Dog<em>. I think you&#8217;ll love it.<\/em><\/p>\n<p><em>I know sometimes you feel trapped and alone, Jason. Why don&#8217;t you read<\/em> The One and Only Ivan<em>&#8230;I hope it&#8217;ll mean as much to you as it does to me. <\/em><\/p>\n<p><em>Michael, you sure seem kind of down today. Know what I think you need? A little <\/em>Captain Underpants <em>therapy. <\/em><\/p>\n<p>A new student arrived at my school this year. She was quiet, she was unsure, she was very far from the home she&#8217;d known.<\/p>\n<p>In her first day at the library, I was showing her around a little bit, her uncertain eyes scanning the library shelves. Then her breath caught. She reached up and softly, lovingly touched the spine of a book.<\/p>\n<p>\u201cOh,\u201d she whispered. \u201c<em>Charlotte&#8217;s Web!<\/em> I read this at my old school. I <em>love<\/em> it. You have it <em>here<\/em>, too?\u201d<\/p>\n<p>And then, for the first time since she&#8217;d arrived, she smiled.<\/p>\n<p>I knew, exactly and personally, how she felt.<\/p>\n<p>That book was not just a story about a pig and spider.\u00a0 It was a little piece of home \u2013 a little piece of home that she will be able to find wherever she goes. If she moves again, and again, and finds herself again and again in a new home and a new town like I did, she&#8217;ll always be able to walk into whatever new school she arrives at and find that book on the library shelves. It&#8217;ll always be there for her. An old friend. And there&#8217;s nothing a new kid needs more than an old friend. That&#8217;s the truth.<\/p>\n<p>And now, in addition to being a teacher-librarian, I have the privilege of being a writer. A writer of a book for kids, a book that will actually find a home on library shelves in different schools, in different towns, in different states. And that feels amazing. Because in so many ways, I&#8217;m still that new kid, that quiet kid looking for a piece of home on those library shelves. And now, in some places, my book will be there.<\/p>\n<p>And somewhere, maybe, some new kid on their first day at a scary new school might see my book and smile and say, \u201cHey. I read that book at my old school. They have it here, too.\u201d<\/p>\n<p>And that kid will know what I learned as a kid, and what I bet everyone reading this knows:<\/p>\n<p>Books are not just <em>things<\/em>. They are worlds that we can always come home to.<\/p>\n<p>&nbsp;<\/p>\n<p><em><a href=\"https:\/\/nerdybookclub.files.wordpress.com\/2015\/03\/the-honest-truth.jpg\"><img class=\"alignright size-thumbnail wp-image-7738\" src=\"https:\/\/nerdybookclub.files.wordpress.com\/2015\/03\/the-honest-truth.jpg?w=99&#038;h=150\" alt=\"the honest truth\" width=\"99\" height=\"150\" \/><\/a>Dan Gemeinhart is an elementary teacher-librarian.

I was only scratching the surface with that.

For the non-literary of mind, this is a female character that is quirky, bubbly and helps the male protagonist grow from his limited state to a more liberated, mature place. She is immensely likeable and for awhile, it&#8217;s easy to confuse her for independent. It&#8217;s just that she is such a PERSONALITY, you tend to think of it as a strong one.<\/p>\n<div id=\"attachment_3892\" style=\"width: 320px\" class=\"wp-caption alignleft\"><a href=\"http:\/\/www.reluctantfemme.com\/2013\/08\/manic-pixie-dream-girls-not-so-fun.html\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"http:\/\/www.reluctantfemme.com\/2013\/08\/manic-pixie-dream-girls-not-so-fun.html\"><img class=\"wp-image-3892\" title=\"http:\/\/www.reluctantfemme.com\/2013\/08\/manic-pixie-dream-girls-not-so-fun.html\" src=\"https:\/\/xxfactor.files.wordpress.com\/2014\/12\/mpdg.jpg?w=310&#038;h=193\" alt=\"MPDG\" width=\"310\" height=\"193\" \/><\/a><p class=\"wp-caption-text\">*Image via Reluctant Femme<\/p><\/div>\n<p>It turns out I&#8217;ve been a <a href=\"http:\/\/tvtropes.org\/pmwiki\/pmwiki.php\/Main\/ManicPixieDreamGirl\" target=\"_blank\">Manic Pixie Dream Girl<\/a>\u00a0in many of my relationships with men in the past 10-odd years. No man who has been around me in this time would accuse me of being boring. Even the most hostile of them will admit that things tend to be exciting, in flux and unpredictable when I&#8217;m around. I&#8217;ve challenged their beliefs, railed against their ways of being and blurred more boundaries than most people do in their turbulent teen years. The nicer ones among them will admit to being charmed and even changed for the better because of my presence in their lives. The others would probably roll their eyes and thank their stars its over. I don&#8217;t tend to get moderate reactions.<\/p>\n<p><a href=\"https:\/\/xxfactor.files.wordpress.com\/2014\/12\/collage.jpg\"><img class=\"  wp-image-3898 alignright\" src=\"https:\/\/xxfactor.files.wordpress.com\/2014\/12\/collage.jpg?w=374&#038;h=271\" alt=\"Collage\" width=\"374\" height=\"271\" \/><\/a><\/p>\n<p>Who I am draws from and defines who I draw to me.\u00a0I thought I was breaking a pattern by moving to younger men, these past four years. But it turns out, I&#8217;ve stayed true to the pattern. Twenty-something men have had enough experiences to know the worries of the world. They are also not wise enough to have made their peace with them or found ways to address them in a way that doesn&#8217;t disrupt other things in their lives (health, family, society etc). That&#8217;s the exact target audience for a Manic Pixie Dream Girl.\u00a0She intrigues them because she is quirky (and not just pretty in that shiny object way) and unpredictable. Plus she is flawed enough to not intimidate their still fragile sense of masculinity.<\/p>\n<p>I suppose the other choice I had among the pop culture\/fiction archetype pantheon was the <a href=\"https:\/\/xxfactor.wordpress.com\/2007\/06\/06\/pin-up-lolita\/\" target=\"_blank\">Child-Woman<\/a>. MPDG\u00a0seems like a more nuanced character with only a few flecks of the immature, broken child-woman.\u00a0So it was Manic Pixie Dream Girl then. I still like how colourful and vibrant that title sounds (not to mention verbose).<\/p>\n<p>So what&#8217;s the problem? I thought I was a boring kid and if there was a way to send a message back to that depressed little girl I was, I&#8217;d say,<\/p>\n<blockquote><p>&#8220;Mission accomplished! Boringness slayed. Achievement unlocked!&#8221;<\/p><\/blockquote>\n<div id=\"attachment_3893\" style=\"width: 397px\" class=\"wp-caption alignleft\"><a href=\"http:\/\/community.sparknotes.com\/sparkler-posts\/manic-pixie-dream-girl\"><img class=\"wp-image-3893\" src=\"https:\/\/xxfactor.files.wordpress.com\/2014\/12\/men-talk.png?w=387&#038;h=218\" alt=\"Men talk\" width=\"387\" height=\"218\" \/><\/a><p class=\"wp-caption-text\">*Image via SparkNotes<\/p><\/div>\n<p>But I&#8217;m not a little girl anymore desperately needing to prove something. And there is something terribly limiting about a stock character, especially a supporting one. Because Manic Pixie Dream Girl, make no mistake, is a supporting character in a man&#8217;s story. She is boxed and she has no real story of her own. She exists in a permanent state of desperate chaos, which draws men like flies to her but doesn&#8217;t do her many favours in the form of stability or happiness. Men eventually tire of her or grow away from her (Here&#8217;s a man who tells his tale using the MPDG lexicon: &#8216;<a href=\"http:\/\/www.nytimes.com\/2013\/07\/28\/fashion\/uh-honey-thats-not-your-line.html\" target=\"_blank\"><em>Uh honey, that&#8217;s not your line<\/em><\/a>&#8216;). Even the creator of this title, Nathan Rabin, has tired of her (here&#8217;s his <a href=\"http:\/\/www.salon.com\/2014\/07\/15\/im_sorry_for_coining_the_phrase_manic_pixie_dream_girl\/\" target=\"_blank\">apology to the world for coining the phrase Manic Pixie Dream Girl<\/a>).<\/p>\n<p>It occurred to me over a sandwich today (yes, how random, how MPDG of me) that perhaps the reason I was drawing exclusively younger men these days was not only because they were the only single ones around. Perhaps it was because\u00a0I was being exactly one kind of girl that twenty-something men found themselves drawn to. There&#8217;s nothing wrong with twenty-something men, of course. The MPDG character draws a very specific kind of man and story. The men can think but they&#8217;re yet to gain mastery over emotion. They are also at <a href=\"https:\/\/xxfactor.wordpress.com\/2009\/08\/07\/the-man-child-tribulations-of-a-twenty-five-old\/\" target=\"_blank\">a peculiarly specific kind of self-centered place in their lives<\/a>, having gotten ahead of themselves and tasting responsibility for the first time. They do not have the ability to deal with a complex human being over a length of time, especially what MPDG would be, if she was a real person (which I am). The story that plays out &#8211; inevitably &#8211; is the same one. The sudden struck-by-lightening style attraction, the broad gestures and lavish promises, the unimaginably magical conversations, the sudden crashes, the melodramatic outbursts and the inevitable sugar crashes. Been there, so much done that. I so hope I&#8217;m over it.<\/p>\n<div id=\"attachment_3895\" style=\"width: 610px\" class=\"wp-caption aligncenter\"><a href=\"http:\/\/www.thefrisky.com\/2012-04-24\/approval-matrix-ranking-the-men-of-manic-pixie-dream-girl-movies\/\"><img class=\"wp-image-3895 size-full\" title=\"http:\/\/www.thefrisky.com\/2012-04-24\/approval-matrix-ranking-the-men-of-manic-pixie-dream-girl-movies\/\" src=\"https:\/\/xxfactor.files.wordpress.com\/2014\/12\/rating_chart-600x450.jpg?w=480\" alt=\"rating_chart-600x450\"   \/><\/a><p class=\"wp-caption-text\">*Image via TheFrisky<\/p><\/div>\n<p>Before you go all people-don&#8217;t-change on me, let me tell you, yes, they do.\u00a0We are constantly evolving creatures and this is extremely superficial, social behaviour that I&#8217;m talking about. That doesn&#8217;t determine me anymore than the colour of the pyjamas I wear to bed. I do have control over the kind of character I project. I can modify this without curbing any of my \u00a0natural spontaneity. I&#8217;m pretty sure it&#8217;s possible to express who I am fully, without limiting it to bite-sized quirk pieces that equally limited men can digest. I just have to figure out how to do this, especially considering the men and I are both so used to the familiar storyline, we fall into it by default.<\/p>\n<div id=\"attachment_3899\" style=\"width: 284px\" class=\"wp-caption alignleft\"><a href=\"http:\/\/hvngrymag.com\/2014\/02\/20\/manic-pixie-dream-girl\/\"><img class=\"wp-image-3899\" title=\"http:\/\/hvngrymag.com\/2014\/02\/20\/manic-pixie-dream-girl\/\" src=\"https:\/\/xxfactor.files.wordpress.com\/2014\/12\/405c755d77769392dcf26175446040c3.jpg?w=274&#038;h=291\" alt=\"405c755d77769392dcf26175446040c3\" width=\"274\" height=\"291\" \/><\/a><p class=\"wp-caption-text\">*Image via HVNG<\/p><\/div>\n<p>I am not terribly alarmed at discovering that I&#8217;ve been unconsciously mirroring a fiction character type. After all, I am woefully short of role models. Besides, I&#8217;d rather follow ideas than real people with their limitations and flaws. Ideas can be modified or discarded more easily. Sigh, yes, that&#8217;s another very Manic Pixie Dream Girl thing to say. But MPDG is as limiting in real life as it is in fiction. I don&#8217;t want to be only seen that way. And I&#8217;d like to be seen by more people than the ones that this character was created to make happy.<\/p>\n<p>I have very little idea who I am going to be beyond my MPDG persona but identifying the box should be the first way out of it.\u00a0Besides 2015 is a bare few days away.
