Very cute, and matches well with the story!

My Thoughts:

We've all been through those tough times, heartaches and heart breaks. From spending the day just sulking around, watching television, to stuffing our faces with ice cream, every girl's has been through the same pain. Even Max, the main character has, and that's why she started this small business of her own (without her mom knowing that she's running it from her basement, with two assistants!) to help girls through this rough time, and make the boy who caused it, regret everything he did.

While Max seems so strong, and confident with everything she says and does, she has a secret of her own, one that no one could ever guess, one that may change her business, friendships, and relationships entirely; her ex boyfriend.

Having spent the last year or so focused on her business and her own life, Max hasn't once thought about her ex. But when bumping into him in New York, and hearing that he was going to the same college Max was hoping to attend, Max doesn't have a clue on how to react or what to think. But what does she does know is that it's finally her time to have her moment, making him completely regret cheating on her and dumping her.

Over You is a must read for the summer; it's light, fun and relatable for any girl. The characters aren't boring or too over dramatic either! Max is confident and strong, especially with the help of her two assistants and best friends. The story overall was fast, and kept my attention, I loved the characters, the ending was satisfying. The one thing I've learned from this story, that I'll never forget is that the heart is a muscle, and when a muscle rips or tares it doesn't just grow back, but it grows back together much stronger.
