Over You by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus

Over You by Emma McLaughlin

Goodreads Blurb
"When seventeen-year-old Max got her heart broken, she made it her mission to help other girls get over being dumped, but did she ever really get over her own heartbreak?" 
After the grand explosion of her relationship, seventeen-year-old Max Scott developed what every girl in the history of the world has been waiting for: a way to get over being dumped. Now Max is the go-to guru for heartbroken high-school girls all over NYC. But when her ex unexpectedly shows up in her neighborhood, 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 him once and for all.
After a devastating ending to a high school romance, Max has decided to dedicate her life to helping others get over their broken hearts and their exes. Along with her two best friends, Zach and Phoebe, Max runs Ex, Inc. with CIA spy-worthy skill. Using what she learned from receiving her own broken heart, Max takes girls through steps to moving on with their lives. 

Things are going well. Max is helping girls, enjoying her work, and meeting new friends. She especially enjoys spending time with her new friend Ben.

Compiling all of her success stories and files, Max sets out to enter NYU on the recommendation of a professor based on the success of her program, but what happens when Max runs into the one who broke her heart. Can she continue to help others when she can't even help herself?

This is a cute story that is often laugh out loud funny and also has you searching your own soul. Some of the situations that Max finds herself in or that are talked about here are unbelievable. However, I think they fit with the whole tone of the book. I don't know that the author ever expected us to believe that this is a real life story, but it's still sweet and fun.
4 out of 5 stars.
