I Know It's Over

I Know It's Over
by C.K. Kelly Martin
Rating: So So
Difficulty: Normal
Pages: 277

Pure. Unplanned. Perfect. Those were Nick’s summer plans before Sasha stepped into the picture. With the collateral damage from his parents’ divorce still settling and Dani (his girl of the moment) up for nearly anything, complications are the last thing he needs. All that changes, though, when Nick runs into Sasha at the beach in July. Suddenly he’s neck-deep in a relationship and surprised to find he doesn’t mind in the least. But Nick’s world shifts again when Sasha breaks up with him. Then weeks later, while Nick’s still reeling from the breakup, she turns up at his doorstep and tells him she’s pregnant, and Nick finds himself struggling once more to understand the girl he can’t stop caring for, the girl who insists that it’s still over.

I Know It's Over was a good book. But that's it, it was just good and i really hate to say it but i found myself falling asleep at times, losing interest and wanting to literaly just get it over with. The only thing i felt interested about was the point of view. When it's usually the girl talking about her unplanned pregnancy, it was fun listening to it from the guy's side. Nick is abnormally thoughtful for a 16yr. old boy (no offense to guys but sometimes they are just a little transperent)! I had a lot of fun exporing the mind of a young man caught in this heartbreaking dilema. His sadness over he and Sasha's unexpected split really made me feel honestly bad for him and it was easy to relate to something so devesating, only i had never read it from a male point of view.

Sasha was that girl who was, throughout the book, really a mystery. I never could figure out what she was thinking though i understood her reasons for splitting with Nick. It was weird not being able to know what was going on inside the girls head! C.K. Kelly really nailed the teenage dialougue! There was no sugar coating and she described complex teenage emotions beautifully! Also, i had alot of fun putting together the playlist for this book! The songs just came to me and that always makes for a good playlist! I Know It's Over wasn't amazing but it was an interesting read!

  1. Thanks for the honest and balanced review. It sounds like the character development and dialogue was terrific, but there was something missing for you.
