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.

A sharply written and romantic summer read. (Publishers Weekly)

Format: Hardcover
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!

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.

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 lose her business.

I don't even know what to say about Over You. Was it fluff? Yeah, kinda. Did it also have important messages? Sure, in a way. Did I like Hugo? Uh No!! What about Ben? Yes, he was really funny! Did I like her techniques used to get over guys? Yep! Most of them are things I'd do. Get rid of his belongings, make sure to have your "moment." A lot of the ideas Max has, I can see myself doing.

I did like all the characters from Max's clients to Max best friend to her non existent family.

Overall: Over You was a cute fun read. I wouldn't say it will make everyone's favorites of the year but it will probably really appeal to some, which includes me. This would be a perfect book to read after a breakup.
