Gigi : We are all programmed to believe that if a guy acts like a total jerk that means he likes you. Mary : What if you meet the love of your life, but you already married somebody else, are you supposed to let them pass you by? Gigi : [ She's taken aback ] You do?
Alex : Well, yeah, okay, don't start doodling my name on your binder, okay. Angela : They just so sneaky that you think it was your idea. Frances : Yeah. You're sitting back and you're like: "Oh, yeah. This my idea.

But wait a second, why am I alone? Why am I unhappy? Angela : "Why have I gained 20 pounds? Frances : They Jedi mind-trick you. Beth : I just need you to stop being nice to me unless you're gonna marry me. Gigi : I would rather be like that, then be like you. Alex : Excuse me? What's that supposed to mean? Gigi : I may dissect each little thing and put myself out there so much but at least that means that I still care. You've think you won because women are expendable to you. You may not get hurt or make an ass of yourself that way but you don't fall in love that way either.
You have not won. You're alone. I may do a lot of stupid shit but I'm still a lot closer to love than you are. Ben : You may be the best friend I've ever had. Gigi : I think I've figured it out. Remember when I went out with that notary public and he cheated on me and then Anastasia from upstairs told me about how her boyfriend cheated on her in the beginning then he totally changed and now they're married and crazy in love?
Beth : I thought that guy was a process server. Gigi : No notary. Anyway my point is, Anastasia is the exception, not the rule. We have to stop listening to these stories because they rule is most guys who cheat on you up front don't really care about you very much. Gigi : Ok, Ok. Exhibit A. Chad the drummer who lived in a storage space. He only used me for rides and yet I continued to stalk him for most of Then oh, um, there was Don, that broke up with me every Friday so that he could have his weekends free.
I was delusional about that relationship. I used to refer to him as my husband to random people, like my dental hygienist. Anyway, all my friends used to tell me about how things might work out with these dipsticks because they knew someone, who knew someone, who dated a dipstick just like mine. That girl ended up getting married and living happily ever after.
That the exception and we're not the exception we're the rule. Gigi : [ Answering machine answers, Gigi's voice: ] Or call my cell, or try me at work but definitely leave a message here first. Alex : Hey, Gigi. It's Alex, um, how's it going? Alex : Uh, just wondering how you're doing. I haven't talked to you in a little while and, uh, just wondering how you're doing. Alex : So I was hoping to talk to you But you're out, I guess. So, just call me some time. Or tonight, uh, in around It's Alex. Alex : [ He looks down ] I know. Neil : So, we're not getting married but I have to get rid of my pants?
Gigi : No, it's okay. I like a little time before a blind date; prepare myself mentally;. Gigi : remind myself not to tell the story about my molars. Alex : Ah, Gigi, he's not coming. But you can tell me the story about the molars; I'd love to hear it. Beth : Am I Neil : I don't wanna be with anybody else, I just wanna be with Beth. Gigi : Maybe his grandma died or maybe he lost my number or is out of town or got hit by a cab Alex : Or maybe he is not interested in seeing you again.

Janine : The question part was implied Javier : I didn't really hear it in the inflection Janine : Javier - have your guys been smoking or not? Javier : No, ma'am. My guys don't smoke on the job site.

Alex : [ laughs ] Kelli Ann : No. Alex : Shit. I mean little children's books [five and under] need to have happy endings, obviously. But books for year olds don't! Reality doesn't always have a happy ending and if you're writing about real-life, you're supposed to make your books as real as possible. Making them real means including the harsh reality of not having your dream happy ending.
The ending is the most important bit. Jacqueline Wilson's book tend to end happily, however, they are about children in depressing situations. Her book do show that not all children are in happy family situations but things can turn out OK in the end. Books I think can be important if they have happy endings because I think they can teach kids to dream.
A little drama and a bit bit of angst is better than a happily ever after. But sad books are less unexpected. Children need to know that life doesn't always have happy endings. They all seem to have similar plots and are uniformly depressing. I don't like majorly happy books where everything goes right. It's plain boring if there's no sadness. Once I read a book which had a nice cover so I thought it would be suitable. However, when I read it I found that it was very disturbing for children my age.
If books were all happy then kids would never know the real world, and get a big shock. Anyway the sadder books are always the best books. But I think books are great as they are, anyway if they take away unhappy endings I'll just read books out of the adult section. Sometimes it's good for it to be nothing like life but you have to have some books with a bad ending.
Some stories that don't have happy endings are read by very young children and can be distressing. A simple no because children must learn that things happen in life and not everything is happy. But it's all right if it's a happy book. It also helps to understand stuff. All her other books had a nearly happy ending and her books are a collection which is why she had to round one off like that. If it is a series of books the author will need to round them off with the main character dying or one the nearly main characters dying. We can't kid ourselves with unrealistic endings.
We can judge for ourselves whether we want to read something or not!
Some of the teenage books I read now sometimes have happier endings than children's books. I don't mind if it's happy or sad as long as it's an okay book to read. I love her so much because her books are realistic, that's what makes them so good! I have written it like this because I believe that children need a bit of darkness in their lives otherwise they will not be able to cope with situations such as death in later life.
Most books have a meaning or moral, so to put forward this meaning the ending must match the moral of the story. Also it gives a bit of excitement to the story!! They deal with real life issues which you can't just try to avoid for the rest of your life. It is good to know about the problems faced in life from an early age and they also help you deal with them. I think Jacqueline Wilson writes her books really well, laying out the problem well to help you learn about the different issues.
I've just read a book called Breaking Dawn and it had a really happy ending despite the fact that there was a lot of really depressing stuff involved in the book. However books need to be balanced out, like some happy endings and some sad endings because sometimes life doesn't end happily.
I write fan fictions and they nearly all have something depressing in them. I think it helps you realise that life's not all fun and smiles. I like books with cliff-hangers like Necropolis by Anthony Horowitz, which is a brilliant book. Darker stories are not always set in the real world, but they are exciting and quite a change from a happier mood book.
Some books give kids the wrong idea of reality. I prefer happy endings but that's just me I guess!

I find that books with unhappy endings are much more interesting. Look at J. Rowling- her books have got a lot of deaths and her series of Harry Potter is known all over the world and has made millions! Children need to learn that not every story has a happy ending. I want a realistic view to life in my books and when they end 'all la de da' and happy I just think we that wouldn't really happen. I think happiness is good in books but not all the time, and I think kids' books are fine. Children's books don't even need to have a happy ending - look at the Harry Potter books!
They're famous and don't have many happy endings. But if books were always happy, then there would not be much point in reading them because they would just start to get boring. But in younger kids' books, happy endings mean they can enjoy the first part of childhood. Like if it's been a bit depressing through the story it shouldn't have a sad ending too.
Most classics aren't very happy but they've been loved for generations. It really depends on the book and the reader as to if it's too depressing as every case is different! I like sad endings because they show an interesting character that can relate to you. Happy endings don't always happen in real life, and not everyone should expect that. You do not want a depressed child sulking all the time. Children need tot be happy!
