----
!!This novel provides examples of:

* ADateWithRosiePalms - Evidently, this happens quite a bit in the Mockery household.
* AdultsAreUseless - Yes. Yes they are. Especially Bobbo.
* BitchInSheepsClothing - Siren. Not that anyone is actually fooled.
* BreakTheCutie - Peggy. Oh, ''Peggy.''
** Echo was broken to begin with, and Allen ends up pretty broken as well.
* ButtMonkey - Allen, occasionally.
* TheCasanova - Carver Fringie. [[spoiler: Not that it stops him from stooping as low as rape.]]
* ChildrenAreInnocent - [[spoiler: Subverted. In horrible, horrible ways.]]
* CloudCuckooLander - [[{{Deconstruction}} Deconstructed]] in the form of [[spoiler: Kelly Kaylin]] given the reason why.
* DCupDistress- Peggy has a very large bust size, and she ''hates'' it.
* DeconstructorFleet - The book seems to go out of its way to deconstruct several tropes, by showing exactly how an [[IncorruptiblePurePureness innocent]] high schooler would be treated by her classmates, exactly how screwed up a girl who plays the role of MsFanservice would actually have to be, and that [[LonersAreFreaks sometimes being a loner is psychologically damaging.]]
* DefrostingIceQueen - Echo. [[spoiler: It does not end well.]]
** [[AvertedTrope Averted]] with [[spoiler: Siren Delaney.]]
* DevilInPlainSight - Everybody knows that Kreig is a total jerk. [[spoiler: They just didn't know he was evil too.]]
* DisproportionateRetribution - [[spoiler: Carver Fringie]] most certainly deserved what he got, but not for the reason [[spoiler: he]] got it for.
* DownerEnding - Allen and Echo are alive, [[spoiler: but everyone else Allen was ever close to is either dead or not in their lives anymore.]] And Echo [[spoiler: is in a mental facility at the end of the story.]]
* DrivenToSuicide - [[spoiler: Peggy Kaylin.]]
** [[spoiler: Echo]] too, but that ends up being [[AvertedTrope averted.]]
* DrugsAreBad - [[spoiler: Kelly Kaylin, who has been on a form of methamphetamine for years.]]
* DysfunctionJunction
* EpicKiss - Echo, [[spoiler: [[LesYay with Hayley.]]]] It does not end well.
* FeelNoPain - [[{{Deconstruction}} Deconstructed,]] again, in the form of [[spoiler: Kelly Kaylin.]]
* ForegoneConclusion - The first sentence of the book outright states that pretty much everyone the main character knows ends up dead by the end of the story. The drama is finding out how.
* FromBadToWorse - in freaking spades.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness - Peggy Kaylin ''used'' to be this, [[BreakTheCutie until...]]
* IncestIsRelative - There is no actual sex between Echo and Allen, but [[ADateWithRosiePalms Molly sure wishes there was.]]
* {{Jerkass}} - Quite a few people. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], as it occurs in a high school.
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk - [[spoiler: Siren Delaney]], in spades.
* KarmicDeath - [[spoiler: Carver Fringie.]]
* KillEmAll - The first sentence of the book was not a lie.
* KillTheCutie - Pretty much [[KillEmAll everyone.]]
* LackOfEmpathy - [[spoiler: Kelly Kaylin.]]
* LoveableSexManiac - Holdn Holdnowski.
* OnlySaneMan - Allen. Everyone else around him is strange in their own little way. And nobody really listens to him.
* MsFanservice - ''[[{{Deconstruction}} Deconstructed.]]''
* LaserGuidedKarma - [[spoiler: Carver Fringie]] really shouldn't have messed with Echo.
* RapeAsDrama - [[spoiler: Peggy Kaylin and Echo Mockery.]]
* SuicideByCop - Attempted by [[spoiler: Echo]], but narrowly averted by split-second timing.
* ThereAreNoTherapists - September and Allen are both peer counselors at their school, so technically there ''are.'' It's just that nobody ever listens to them.
* {{Tsundere}} - Echo to Allen.
