Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up-Seventeen-year-old Max Scott knows from experience how the dumped and brokenhearted feel. After surviving a breakup, she starts an organization, Ex, Inc., dedicated to helping teens get over their exes. With unbridled optimism and self-help mantras like, "He's entitled not to love me, but he's not entitled to mess with my happy place" and "You are the source," she swoops into clients' lives with an action plan for recovery. Her grateful patrons spread the word and Ex, Inc. is busy enough to keep Max and her friends hopping. Max wants to take it national, so she is applying to NYU with plans to co-major in business and psychology. However, she has a secret that may undermine her ambitions. She is not quite over the rich playboy who dumped her. When he comes to town, Max is confronted with all her past anguish and her polished veneer begins to crack. Over You is filled with vulnerable moments that pull on readers' sympathy while still giving fodder for a chuckle or two. The myriad references to fashion designers and pop culture will date the book, but that will not stop readers from enjoying this chick-lit offering.-Mindy Whipple, West Jordan Library, UTα(c) Copyright 2011.

Max is a very interesting character.

I wish it had been written in first person (I would have liked to connect a little bit more with Max) but I understand why it was written in third person omniscient.

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 her, and how she tries to make other girls have it as well. In this book, Max takes on a new client names Bridgit. After her boyfriend, Taylor, broke up with her, she becomes miserable. Max comes to the rescue with some chocolate, coffee, and a set of new rules. I''m going to say it was very interesting to see Max's strategies of getting Bridgit over her boyfriend, and it was very fun as well! Though, when Max see's her ex-boyfriend Hugo, she still doesn't seem to over him yet. Things get messy, because there's this other boy, Ben. I don't want to say much or spoil anything, but serious stuff happen.
Overall, I loved everything about this book. Yes, the beginning might have been a tad boring, and there were some parts where I was confused about what was happening, but it was still great! I really wanted to read a funny, cute, contemporary novel, and I'm glad "Over You" had all three. I really recommend this book to all girls out there just looking for a fun read!

Hollywood film executives, take note of this book! I would definitely go see Over You if it were at the box office. It's cute, fluffy, and fun - it's chick lit that fans of Meg Cabot would definitely enjoy. Did I learn anything about myself from reading this book? No, but that's okay because it was just plain fun. I really enjoyed the characters - they were relatable teens, and although somewhat cookie cutter, I was okay with it.

Most of all, I loved all of the brands and fashion nods in the book. My favorite quote: "I'm about as tranquil as a Missoni dress." Missoni is KNOWN for their wild prints.

Then she had a Marni vest! AH - LOVE! Okay, so basically I loved all of the fabulous things she had plus her sassiness was killer. Brokenhearted teenage girls are nothing new but it was fun to read this story. I wish it had been written in first person (I would have liked to connect a little bit more with Max) but I understand why it was written in third person omniscient.

If you're looking for a fluffy, one-day read - pick this one up!

Format: Hardcover
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 girl-power themes... So did it work for me?

For about the first 75 pages or so, I was disappointed. I felt like the writing wasn't of the same quality as their other books. I got the impression that they were dumbing it down for their intended audience, and to be honest, that made me feel resentful. There wasn't as much of the sharp wit and depth of character I had grown used to from their other books, and I (wrongly) assumed it was due to the fact that they didn't think this younger audience would be able to handle it. I was the one at fault for that though, because once I thought about it, I realized that these younger characters just aren't going to have the benefit of life experience that the ladies in their other books have had.

Over You is a cute story about independence and heartbreak. After going through a rough breakup, Max designs a full proof program to help girls get over the exes and starts a little business out of it. While I loved the sense of empowerment and the addicting quality of the writing, there were little things about Max that kept me from loving the book.

I come from a strong entrepreneurial background, so I thought it was fantastic that Max started her own business. That said, she didn't charge for her services. How is this a viable business model, you ask? It is not. I definitely lost some respect for Max because of that. Additionally, Max seams to view all boys as evil heartbreakers, which is simply immature. Girls are just as capable of breaking hearts and being mean (as Max basically proves with her program). I also think that she is the definition of a hypocrite. Max's horrible break up caused her to drop out of high school and get her GED--dramatic, anyone? Ugh.

Despite not being a Max fan, I really did enjoy Over You. It is just really cute and has some great romance in it. The characters (excluding Max and her parents) were well done and a joy to read about. I love that it encourages independence and am happy that Max's ridiculous notions are dispelled by the end of the novel. Over You is perfect if you're looking for a light summer read.
