Summary: 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.

My Thoughts: Layney is a girl in charge. She doesn't take crap from other people. She's also in charge of the school newspaper.  Her arch nememis is also the co-editor of the newspaper, opposite her. His name is Jimmy Foster, and you can tell from the first page, they have a past together. We don't know what or why but for some reason they can't stand each other.

The newspaper staff have to try to raise money, so ideas flow throughout the classroom. They finally settle on a calandar, but the suggestion is she go on 12 blind dates with each month's calandar and than write up an expose at the end. She agrees to it barely. Layney doesn't date high school boys...ever.... so this is a challenge for her.

I enjoyed watching each and every date. I loved seeing how different the guys were and how she could relate to them.  You can definately tell these charactesr are teenagers, they definately acted like it.

I also enjoyed learning more about Jimmy Foster.

So Over You is a fluff read. It's one of those books you pick up in between two other books to settle you over for a while, or when your in the need to just sit and eat junk food and read something sweet.

Overall: Liked it but didn't love it. I did enjoy watching all the guys either put the moves on her, or not be interested in her. Some of them wanted a second date, some didn't. I am also glad we learned why Layney doesn't date and what her actual problem is. I liked her relationship (or fighting relationship) with Foster.

So Over You was a cute and light read. Perfect for a rainy day or a short day on the beach. It could be either.

Cover: It's neat. I like the pink on the cover, and the way she is holding a heart.

What I'd Give It:
