"After the grand explosion of her relationship, seventeen-year-old Max Scott developed what every girl in the history of the world has been waiting for: a way to get over being dumped. Now Max is the go-to guru for heartbroken high-school girls all over NYC. But when her ex unexpectedly shows up in her neighborhood, Max’s carefully controlled world starts to unravel. With her clients’ hearts hanging in the balance, Max will have to do the seemingly impossible: get over him once and for all.
Brilliant at bringing humor to the trials and tribulations of the lovestruck, #1 New York Times bestselling authors Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus have crafted a tale that will resonate with any girl who has ever been in love or had her heart broken. It brims with smart observations, features a pitch-perfect teen voice, and will attract fans of Jenny Han, Sarah Mlynowski, and Lauren Barnholdt. Readers are sure to fall head-over-heels for this sharp spin on breaking up, making up, and getting even."
 I love a story of girl sticking together through heart ache. At first, I wasn't real sure how this self-made heart break guru is going  help others. As I read the through the story, the author painted a bigger picture that what I saw.

What I enjoyed most about this story is the guru herself, Max. After a heart-break she had come up with methods to help the grieving process as well as the self esteem. I loved this parts the most. It showed Max's compassionate side to helps others what she had been through. She is devoted and loyal to every client. The profound affect she has as a person is amazing. 

The best part about this story is the guru falling in love herself. She is totally blindsided by it, yet it made the story so much more entertaining. The way she fought her feelings, bottled them up, yet to to her "ah ha" moment is awesome. I like the way how things seem like it is all over when really it is just the beginning.

Over You is an powerful story that shows the in's and out's of heart ache. Alas, a great story of that is funny yet satisfying. Hugely appealing to teens everywhere, this is one book you don't want to miss. 

I give it 4 BITES!

Happy Reading!
