    Contemporary romance hits with a vengeance in this humor-filled

    Contemporary romance hits with a vengeance in this humor-filled novel as seventeen-year-old Max sets off to heal the broken hearts of girls across NYC and help them get over their ex-boyfriends. She does this through her non-profit company EX, INC with the help of her best friend Zach and Phoebe. As a high school dropout (with plans for college at NYU, where she also plans to build up her company into something bigger), Max has plenty of time to look after the healing hearts of her clients. What she doesn't include in her plans is spying her ex in town--and to find out that she hasn't fully gotten over him. How is she to maintain her clients' trust if her methods haven't worked on herself?

    The story is told in third-person present-tense, casting Bridget (Max's latest client), Taylor (Bridget's ex), Ben Cooper (who is crushing and Max and, unbeknownst to her, Taylor's best friend), and Max Scott herself (still getting over Hugo Tillman, but starting to notice Ben). With this cast of characters, you know there's going to be an abundance of drama. The third-person present-tense was hard to get into at first because I'm not used to it; however, it really works for this novel. I felt as though I was watching a play unfold, and that's precisely what this novel is: a play waiting to unfold, waiting for Max's therapy techniques to fail, so she can finally get over Hugo and get together with someone who's willing to go the distance with her.

    There is humor in this book. The waterworks turn on at full blast when the girls wail over their exes, and it is hilarious the lengths that Max will take for her clients. Some not so legal (as in ruin-your-chances-of-going-to-college not-legal). I love the references to celebrity figures as well; they fit into context perfectly. Within this humor a message. Over You is about letting go of the past and moving on. It is about admitting your mistakes and taking the plunge forward.
