Overview

Layney Logan, girl reporter.

That's all she's ever wanted to be. This year, her senior year, not only does she have to share the coveted Senior Editor position with her arch nemesis, Jimmy Foster, she also has to figure out how to keep the school paper alive. With the local paper closing and the school cutting Journalism from the budget, it's a long shot. Working side-by-side with Foster, the guy she likes to call Lucifer,makes it even worse.

The only thing Layney dislikes more than swimming in the high school dating pool is Jimmy Foster thinking he got the best of her, so she takes his ridiculous newspaper assignment--to go on twelve blind dates--to prove his powers of darkness won't work on her. The trouble is, the more she learns about herself on her journey of bad blind dates, the more she wonders if maybe Foster has known her better than she knows herself all this time.
And maybe she should have trusted him with the secret she's kept for four years-the secret that broke them up to begin with.

This book had me alternating between laughing out loud and crying. Logan and Foster are beautifully written characters, and Hayes has a wonderful talent for creating intelligent and satisfyingly snarky dialogue. The way the two bounce off of each other reminded me strongly of "His Girl Friday" but Hayes took it to an emotionally-charged next level that just made this book shine. As funny as this book was, there are some heartbreaking themes that are dealt with in "So Over You" and to the author's credit, the transition between the two tones is handled very smoothly and the subject matter dealt with in a believable way. Definitely a bright jewel in the YA indie publishing crown!

I loved this book so much! I had a blast reading it, it was a very quick read. I definitely found myself smiling like a fool more than once, and I laughed out loud many times. The dialogue between the two main characters is passionate and fascinating and I was so amused by this book, which isn't easy for me, most books to me are just so- so. I've probably read over 400 books and this is definitely high up there on my list of favorites! :) I would recommend it to anyone, it's simply adorable.

This is a well written book with cute characters and a cute story line. The main character has a very real problem though and it was hard for me to read. I am more into fantasy with happily ever afters. This book has a positive ending and I would recommend it to young women because it teaches about real life.
