    Smile cry over/for a novel

    She is so foolish as to cry over/for a novel.



    I think over and for work with the above wording but I suspect that there are marginal differences in meanings. Your advice? Thanks.

    To cry over something = something makes me so emotional that I cry

    To cry for something = I want something.
