It's Monday, What Am I Reading?

Over YouTitle: Over You.
Author: Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus.

"When seventeen-year-old Max Scott got her heart broken she didn't just sit at home sobbing into her ice cream and obsessing over her ex, Hugo's, latest Facebook postings. Well, actually she did. But she also decided that no girl should have to be tortured like that, so she read through all the psych books, Oprah transcripts, and historical precedents she could get her hands on and came up with a foolproof program to get over being dumped. These days, Max is the go-to guru for heartbroken high-school girls all over NYC. But when Hugo shows up in her neighborhood, suddenly Max is so busy trying to avoid her own ex that she isn't able to help anyone else with theirs. As Hugo invades her life all over again, 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 her ex once and for all."

My Thoughts So Far:

Having read through to the sixth chapter, I'm really enjoying the story and the main character Max so far. Just like any other Max has gone through a rough break up, and has had to deal with the emotional aftermath. But from that rough break up, she's not only create a new and stronger version of herself, but also her very own (small) business; Ex, Inc.

Ex, Inc run by Max and two of her friends, helps other girls get through a break up, and completely over the guy. I can't wait to know what happens and how Max deals with seeing her ex after ten months of not seeing or talking to him.
