It's Not Over Till You're Over it – Jenny Pausacker


Pages: 185 Pages

Rating: C

Published: 1998

Date Finished: Ist January 2011

I understood the main character's emotions in the novel. While it was a young adult book, like explore, adults and teenagers still can be hurt in the same way and struggle with depression when serious relationships crumble.

I thought the main character [Emma Donnelly] was annoying. She didn't progress as far as I would have liked and she was to self absorbed for me to feel compassionate for and about her.

I loved the character Wolf as he reminded me of the friend I'd always wished I had during my yound adult years and even now.

I did enjoy the message Jenny was trying to portray, but wish I could say this book left me feeling content. It didn't inspire me, nor did it provoke me. Though for the most part I did enjoy reading it.

Jenny's writing style reminded me a lot of Heather O'Neil's [Lullabies for Little Criminals] and while innocent. It lacked intensity and was frustrating.

I would recommend this book for younger readers as it is more suited to older primary school children, early high school.
