Not In My School is a weekly meme hosted by yours truly that throws out one YA lit cliche a week for you to compare to your own high school days, current or past. For more information go here.
And now for our first cliche! Drumroll . . .
The clumsy kid, most likely female and usually endearing to the point of fawning over.
Srsly. in my school if you're falling all over yourself you would have been left to fall all over yourself. A trip is one thing but if you're constantly at risk of slamming into lockers, spilling acid on yourself or getting into more car accidents than you have fingers, PEOPLE WILL AVOID YOU. Usually because they didn't want to die at your clumsy ass expense. Or at the very least be maimed. And there certainly weren't guys falling over these girls to protect them or help them up. In fact that probably would have been laughing their faces off.
What about you? What was it like in your school? Leave your link in the comments!
