* NeverMyFault: sort of Subverted here. Many fans see Mike's actions as this, as Mike has not VERBALLY apologized and taken responsibility for his "December" TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to Lucy, even though he very much feels internal guilt for what he did and knows he took the situation way too far. Also, he did apologize to Lucy in Chapter 15 for unintentionally abandoning here in the 3rd grade for Sandy.

** Abbey, to some fans. It's hard not to feel sorry for the poor guy after everything he's been through, but he's still rather aggressively and somewhat violently protective of his loved ones and the weak, to the point where he comes off as more harsh than good.

* RonTheDeathEater: There is a portion of the fandom that says Lucy is a complete and unrepentant JerkAss. Mike gets the exact same treatment from his detractors. There are also those who say Tess is evil, in spite of her constant efforts to avert her past status as a jerk. This has also occurred with Sandy in at least one fanfic where she is shown to be vengeful, jealous and murderous, due to the author disliking her.
** Abbey also get this treatment from the fanbase lately due to his hatred towards Paulo, culminating in him assaulting Paulo as of recent, causing many to decry him as an irredeemable monster. While Abbey's attack on Paulo isn't fully justified, most tend to forget that Paulo spends the majority of his time with Abbey antagonizing and belittling him purely for his own amusement, and in the most abhorrent way, cruelly guilt tripping Abbey into reconciling his relationship with Daisy by ridiculing him on how anybody besides Daisy can stand to be with him, and then finishes his argument by ''bringing up Abbey's deceased mother in front of the entire class''. While Abbey certainly has anger issues and can be violent at the worst of times, he is shown to try to come to terms with his own problems and trying his best to be a decent individual and friend...just not towards Paulo.

**
Daisy receives a brutal is this to some readers after her (second) breakup from Abbey, causing with Abbey. There was fault to go around, to be sure (she was angry at Abbey for ''physically assaulting'' Paulo), but considering her history of downplaying and ignoring Paulo's teasing and emotional abuse of Abbey (up to retreat to and including Paulo to apologize for bringing up his dead mother in front of the whole class), several fans were upset when her past behaviour to him, and declares that she cares for him more than his later attempt to bring Daisy and Abbey back together in the end. It is portrayed as a heartwarming scene and a declaration of childhood friendship rising above hard times. However, Daisy was shown to have willingly allowed mend bridges with Paulo seemed to guilt trip her ex-boyfriend Abbey into reconciling their relationship in a nasty manner that is mentioned in BrokenBase, and also consistently downplayed or had never called Paulo out on his bullying towards her boyfriend without much concern for his mental well-being (except for the one time when she did, which had caused Paulo to stop being friends with Daisy at first), which leads to Abbey attacking Paulo over his Cassanova tendencies and the bullying once he reaches his limit. Once Daisy finds out and tries to make amends to Paulo, she retracts her initial impression of Paulo having bullied Abbey, and states that the entire scenario is all because of her boyfriend and that Abbey was wrong to not see how she sees Paulo, [[NeverMyFault all while completely glossing over both of their roles in how they took advantage of Abbey and put him back in a toxic relationship with Daisy against his wishes, thus starting the whole mess in the first place, and then pinning all the blame on him for not handling it better than he should]], thus causing [[UnintentionallySympathetic Abbey to break up with Daisy for being forced into being how things ended and none on either of them. It doesn't help that even other characters describe the relationship as her token boyfriend again, and "stringing him along" due to her still having feelings for being flippant of Mike.
** While
Paulo's jerkish behavior isn't typically meant to be seen in a sympathetic light, several fans felt this way about him being physically threatened by Abbey (related to the above entry) due to his hand in essentially guilting Abbey back into dating Daisy after they broke up the first time and his constant teasing and bullying towards him once too many times for him to tolerate]].
** Paulo can also be perceived as this for those who finds his attitude too overbearing and unlikable at times. One instance is during
(especially knowing the time when Daisy tells him off for bullying Abbey, which prompts Paulo to develop a passive-aggressive stance towards her until he finally yells at her for calling him out on attacking Mike over [[spoiler: Lucy having returned to school, but was in no mood to speak to her friends during lunchtime due to Mike's presence]]. Another instance is his actions listed on BrokenBase having also caused controversy due to certain groups either perceiving Paulo's lack of tact in handling the situation as immature yet well intentioned, or it is seen as a downright spiteful and cruel act that had ended up causing unnecessary problems in the future. It does not help Abbey is dealing with at home). The fact that Paulo [[KarmaHoudini is rarely punished]] for he doesn't acknowledge his actions towards his friends, and hand in pushing him over the edge, even if [[TheReasonYouSuck called out on his behaviour]], Paulo refuses to learn from his behaviour and continues to bully and belittle those around him.after the breakup, doesn't help.

* HollywoodPudgy: Daisy, though rounder and pudgier than the other female characters, has quite a typical body shape for a teenage girl in the early stages of puberty. However some of the comments act like she's unhealthily overweight.
