Review: Over It – Sarah Billington
Ever since Poppy met Ty, her life has never been the same. He’s the lead singer of Academy of Lies, a boy band who sings her song, The Kiss Off. Everything is going great, for both her and them. Things get even better when she finally receives the royalties made off of her song.
In her mind, she knows exactly what she wants to do with the money. Sadly, her parents have other ideas. Poppy knows they mean well. They’re her parents, after all, but if she’s to assert herself as being independent, they’ll need to let her come into her own. Getting them to see that fact is another matter entirely. Never-the-less, she’s determined to live her life as she sees fit.
When word of the summer music festival reaches Poppy’s ears, she realizes it’s the perfect opportunity for her to spend some much needed time with Ty. She comes up with idea of taking her friends along, never imagining that things might turn out differently for all of them. Though her plans do fall into place, things are not exactly what she thought they’d be. Still, she gets to spend time with her boyfriend, and enjoy herself while she’s at it.
Another great addition to The Kiss Off series, Over It is definitely a book that won’t disappoint. It’s refreshing to see Poppy grow up just a little bit, though she’s still that rebellious teen when she wants to be. Her life may be a little hectic, but she’s determined in asserting herself whenever possible. Between Ty, writing music, and fending off the paparazzi, her life isn’t quite that normal. Never-the-less, she’ll make do with the situations she finds herself in.
The book ends in a little bit of a cliffhanger, but I think it definitely sets things up nicely for what’s to come. Will Poppy finally get her true chance at happiness? It’s honestly hard to say. I look forward to what the third book has to bring, though. Hopefully, Poppy will have things go her way, once and for all.

Teen Youtube song writing sensation Poppy Douglas’s lead singer boyfriend Ty’s been criss-crossing the country and living it up on tour for months while Poppy has been stuck in the boring suburbs, finishing out the school year.
But it’s Summer now, and the best thing just happened: Poppy’s royalties for writing the hit song The Kiss Off just came in. She’s minted, and she knows just what she’s going to blow it on.
Ty’s band Academy of Lies are headlining a summer music festival, and Poppy is taking her girlfriends along for the best weekend of their lives. It’s all organized: the weekend is going to be full of camping under the stars, backstage passes, VIP rooms and partying like rock stars, not to mention some long awaited one-on-one time with America’s favorite front man.
Except, when someone drops out of the trip and Poppy takes the opportunity to mend a broken friendship, it doesn’t quite go according to plan. And when she meets her boyfriend’s BFF from another band, the paparazzi form their own totally wrong conclusions. There’s also the matter of Ty’s ‘super fan’ stalker, but the less said about her the better.
The biggest test of all comes in the form of an opportunity too good to pass up. But will insecurities and jealousy stand in Poppy’s way? Can Poppy and Ty’s relationship even survive it?
Life is about to get much more complicated for Poppy Douglas, but what can you expect when your boyfriend is a rock star?
