Review of So Over It
I liked the writing style of the author. The main character, Skylar, comes across as being very relatable. Through the many difficulties in her life, Skylar pushes through and tries to be Christian in her actions. With the help of good friends, her boyfriend, and God, Skylar finds healing from a very traumatic event in her life.
There were several things that I didn't like in So Over It, but all of them were portrayed as being negative. This book does deal with some rough topics, so I probably would advise that parents read the book through before letting their girls read So Over It. There are drugs, drinking, smoking, teen pregnancy, and, to put it delicately, a girl being taken advantage of by a guy. So, there are a lot of big issues in this book, and, again, I recommend some caution for gals and their parents.
