Over You is a cute story about independence and heartbreak. After going through a rough breakup, Max designs a full proof program to help girls get over the exes and starts a little business out of it. While I loved the sense of empowerment and the addicting quality of the writing, there were little things about Max that kept me from loving the book.
I come from a strong entrepreneurial background, so I thought it was fantastic that Max started her own business. That said, she didn’t charge for her services. How is this a viable business model, you ask? It is not. I definitely lost some respect for Max because of that. Additionally, Max seams to view all boys as evil heartbreakers, which is simply immature. Girls are just as capable of breaking hearts and being mean (as Max basically proves with her program). I also think that she is the definition of a hypocrite. Max’s horrible break up caused her to drop out of high school and get her GED—dramatic, anyone? Ugh.
