"In It's Over, Laura L. Smith confirms the truth we've been told that we are never alone in the midst of heartache and struggle. In fact, she takes us to a place where we not only get to see, but feel deeply the truth of the fact that every single one of us has a story. Everyone single one of us has experienced pain. But more importantly, that every single one of us has great hope. Smith's writing strikes a deep chord in my heart. It makes sense. It's real--and in my opinion, that transparency makes all the difference." ~Holly Starr, Christian recording artist.
"Laura L. Smith speaks for the broken. With a voice that's warm and true, Laura gives words to those rendered speechless by issues that high school and college girls should never have to deal with--but so many of them do. In writing that's raw, relevant, and real, Smith goes where few authors dare to go: straight into the heart of today's young woman." ~Amy Parker, bestselling author

In this continuation of the Status Updates Series, Laura L. Smith has created a more complex, dynamic, and realistic tangle for her IT'S COMPLICATED characters. Four college roommates, brought together by more than the four walls they share at school, are now faced with grown up issues they never saw coming and once again realize that the power of friendship is what gives you strength. That seeing yourself, believing in what's right, and leaning on each other and faith when hope seems to be scarce is an awe-inspiring power that few are able to acknowledge. Laura L. Smith is a gifted author -- allowing each of her characters to shine with their own unique voice, and weaving her novels with the right mix of tension, humor and reality that all girls (teen and college age) will identify with.
