One thing I can say about this book is that, I LOVE the cover. Its extremely adorable, and at the bag of the book, you can see the same pictures, but the guy's face is scribbled on with a pink pen. CUTE! haha! Anyways, the main protagonist, Max, helps girls all over NYC to "get over" their ex boyfriends. Max finished her school, and is taking a one year break. In that period of time, she has established Ex, Inc. Along with her best friend Zach, and her other friend, Phoebe. Ex, Inc. has a sufficient program to help girls to actually get over their ex-boyfriends, and not just cry and sob all day long for being dumped. This is the first time I read a book like that, and I find it extremely cute and funny. The writing is different than most books. It's from third person point of view, which I actually found it to be a bit weird in the beginning, but I eventually got used to it. Max is a very interesting character. I really loved the "girl-power" she seemed to take everywhere with...
I'll start off this review by saying that I'm a long-time fan of this writing duo. I read The Nanny Diaries long before there was any talk of a film, and have read each of their other books, upon release, ever since. To this day, Citizen Girl and Dedication are two of my all-time favorite fluffy Chick Lit books ever. When I heard that they were publishing their first YA Contemporary novel, I knew I just HAD to review it. I've always found their characters relatable and I have always felt great at the end, after watching them grow. They almost always start out rather insecure and damaged and grow, through their experiences, into confident, mature heroines who know that they can fend for themselves. When I found out about Over You, I thought to myself, "Wow. If anyone could empower young girls with circumstances they can relate to, it would be these ladies!" When I got my advance copy, I was excited to dig in. I'd missed the Emma's and Nicola's snarky wit and endearing...
My Thoughts: We've all been dumped and if you haven't, lucky you! It makes us stronger, eventually, it makes us open our eyes to want we want in a relationship.
We are introduced to Max who was in love with Hugo. Perfect Hugo in her eyes. He noticed her, he made her feel good, he appreciated her, until he didn't anymore. Max got dumped. She couldn't handle it, so she moved to a new city, dropped out of school, and started her own business.
She helps girls get over their ex's. Simple enough, right? Sure she has her own problems but she puts them aside to help these poor girls. Her latest client is Bridgett. Bridgett's ex lives across the street from her. And he's friends with a boy named Ben. Of course Max ends up meeting this Ben, and things go haywire from there.
She starts to feel something special for one guy, but then her ex Hugo enters the picture again. Max has a lot of decisions to make, and quickly. She can't let her guard down, and she can't...
