So Over It

Author: Stephanie Morrill
Publisher: Revell
July 2010
ISBN: 978-0-8007-3391-9
Genre: Inspirational/teen

Skylar Hoyt has finally graduated from high school and she is so ready to forget about her less than stellar school years and get a fresh start—preferably someplace where people don’t know about her, or her dysfunctional family. A place where she won’t run into her ex-boyfriend every time she leaves the house is preferable.

When Skylar’s grandparents offer Skylar the chance to spend the summer in Hawaii, Skylar jumps at the opportunity to get out of town. But there she discovers that she might leave the mainland but she can’t leave the gossip or her old life behind.

Will Skylar be strong enough to start living the life God wants, in spite of the setbacks?

SO OVER IT is the third and final book in The Reinvention of Skylar Hoyt series. I recommend reading the books in order so you don’t miss anything, so if you missed the first two books you will want to pick them up first. They are Me, Just Different, and Out With the In Crowd.

Skylar is a realistic teenage heroine, complete with all the drama that seems to come with that age group. This book, like the others, deal with some very hard, and unfortunately, very real, teen issues, which makes it kind of difficult for the older generation to read sometimes, as these were not things we had to deal with. But, they are issues that our teenagers face way too frequently. So, unless your teen is extremely sheltered, this is excellent for her to read as it will help her deal with some of these issues. The last few paragraphs are absolutely beautiful. Don’t miss SO OVER IT. $11.99. 259 pages.
