Physical Description:
1 volume (unnumbered pages) : chiefly illustrations ; 23 cm
Mucha addresses, once again, the subject of relationships, or, to be accurate, the "getting over it" part after a relationship's end. Mucha takes an autobiographical stance, maintaining a balance between the personal and the involved, without descending into narcissism. Through it all, she dredges through the universal impulses and emotions of the post break-up period.

A few, very long years ago, Corinne Mucha ( Freshman: Tales of 9th Grade Obsessions , Revelations , and Other Nonsense , Zest Books) began exploring the strange behaviors of her own broken heart. Both giggle- and cringe- inducing, Get Over It! gives us all the gory, gooey details on the way to wisdom.

Booklist Review

Neil Sedaka got it wrong. It's not breaking up that's so hard to do. It's being broken-up-from that's really a bear. Mucha had been with Sam for two years. With their third anniversary looming, she asks him about their future. I want to get married someday, he says, just not to you. Ouch! Things plunge downhill after that. She cries buckets, feels inadequate, has a health crisis (he's last to visit her in the hospital), but she soon moves out and settles into dwelling on her misery. They keep seeing one another, trying to be good friends. Then he starts a serious new relationship, and . . . she gets over him, er, it. Such are the bare bones of the book, which Mucha clothes in wry, witty, and very cartoony cartooning, notably including monologues by and dialogues between her heart and her brain, rendered anatomically (except for their little faces, arms, and legs, that is). Mucha manages to make a very familiar subject simultaneously affecting and ludicrous, and always very human. A good supplement to any romantic-disaster first-aid kit.--Olson, Ray Copyright 2014 Booklist
