About the Book:

How can Skylar stay true to herself without losing the ones she loves most?

Senior year is over and Skylar Hoyt is ready to forgive and forget. Or at least forget. She wants a fresh start where people don’t know about her past or her dysfunctional family. A place where she won’t run into her ex-boyfriend every time she leaves the house. When she gets the opportunity to spend the summer in Hawaii with her grandparents, Skylar jumps at the chance to get out of town. But will she truly be able to leave her old life behind? And will she be strong enough to rise above the gossip and live the life God wants?

About the Author:
Stephanie Morrill is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers and the Teen Lit writers’ group. Morrill is the author of Me, Just Different and Out with the In Crowd, and she also serves in youth ministry. She lives in Kansas with her husband and young daughter.

My Review:
Even though I missed book 1 in the series, Me, Just Different, I loved reading book 2, Out With the In Crowd. I loved Skylar’s story, reading about her trying to reinvent herself and live for God, so I was happy to learn that book 3, So Over It, was releasing and I jumped on the chance to review it. I was not disappointed!

So Over It picks up where Out With The In Crowd left off. Stephanie Morrill has once again used Skylar’s life and story to draw young readers into the story. Skylar’s final part of her story is, again, filled with humor, faith, hope and a powerful message from God in forgiveness, especially forgiving yourself. It’s perfect for teen girls.

Skylar’s trying to leave her old life and old boyfriend behind, along with the gossip and old friends and live a life that God wants her to live, but she’s not sure she can get over the past and forgive anyone, especially herself, so she can live for God. I struggled a lot in high school with the forgiveness issue, much like Skylar, and I wish Stephanie Morrill would have had these books out all those years ago. I really felt that Skylar was a true friend by the end.

Though I hated saying goodbye to Skylar, Abbie, Conner and all the other wonderful characters, and hated seeing the reinvention come to an end, I highly recommend this book, as well as the first two, to everyone, young girls and adults alike. This book is a 5 star YA book with a perfect message within for all those teens in High School and beginning college. I can’t wait for more books by Stephanie Morrill in the future!
