* OOCISSeriousBusiness: Jordana HatesBeingTouched and shrugs off Oliver's attempts at putting his arm around her. After he meets her ill mother, however, she's seen hugging her upset father, and afterwards she shocks Oliver when she initiates a hug -- showing how much she needs him [[[spoiler:and making it hurt all the worse when he breaks up with her for that exact reason.]]

* FallingInLoveMontage: Subverted; the first scene at the beach ''seems'' like this, but Jordana will freely admit to not loving Oliver.

* RedOniBlueOni: PyroManiac, capricious Jordana dresses in red; introverted, thoughtful Oliver is surrounded by blue and images of water. This becomes important later in the film, where Oliver can tell that Jordana read his note because of her red markings.

*** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Not a golden heart, perhaps, but a softer side. The scene where Oliver has an "early Christmas" dinner with her family shows her tender side, first by hugging her upset father and later showing some emotion to Oliver, hugging him first. [[spoiler:When Oliver breaks up with her, it's also obvious how hurt she is by him.]]



* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Oliver muses during one scene that, in a film of his life, he'd want the camera following him as he walks away, but all he could afford would probably be a zoom-out. Cue a hilariously clunky zoom-out.

** [[spoiler:Jill gives Graham a hand job in his van, though that was the end of it.]]

** On a meta level as well; In the book, she has a bigger role, having lost weight and enjoying her life in a new school after she's bullied out of her old one, and her success is contrasted with Oliver's immature victim complex. In the film she's not shown again after her bullying brings Jordana and Oliver together, and Oliver never gets comeuppance for his actions.



* JerkAss: Jordana, before her CharacterDevelopment; Oliver states that she likes to bully "in moderation" despite not being popular herself.

* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Jordana is somewhat of a [[TropesThatWillNeverHappen Manic Pixie Jerk Ass]] early in the movie to the introspective and inward Oliver; JerkAss in that her influence isn't necessarily positive, such as his joining in on [[ButtMonkey Zoe's]] bullying because it entertains Jordana. [[spoiler:Subverted in that most males want the [=MPDG=] to reciprocate their feelings; Oliver breaks up with Jordan when he's worried she'll get too "gooey."]]

* YourCheatingHeart: Jordana's ex-boyfriend cheated on her with another girl in class.
