There really was not too much negative in this book. I felt the book was a little drawn out though and it was not that hard to put down. Also, I think the relationships between the characters could have developed quicker. However, it was a cute, fun read. The main character, Chloe, was a refreshingly talkative, confident, caring girl with a love for vintage shoes. It’s especially hard to find such an outspoken heroine in books, now. I thought it was amazing how she dealt with everything sent her way: social isolation, her grandmother’s struggle with Parkinson’s Disease, argument in her family.
The author, Shelley Coriell, did a wonderful job on her debut novel; and you should definitely check out this book when it comes out. It shows great themes of friendship, romance, and overcoming problems sent your way. I’d give this book four out of five cookies, and recommend it to people looking for a cute read. Later this week, look for a review of Awkward by Marni Bates :)
Official Book Summary:
“Big-hearted Chloe Camden is the queen of her universe until her best friend shreds her reputation and her school counselor axes her junior independent study project. Chloe is forced to take on a meaningful project in order to pass, and so she joins her school’s struggling radio station, where the other students don’t find her too queenly. Ostracized by her former BFs and struggling with her beloved Grams’s mental deterioration, lonely Chloe ends up hosting a call-in show that gets the station much-needed publicity and, in the end, trouble. She also befriends radio techie and loner Duncan Moore, a quiet soul with a romantic heart. On and off the air, Chloe faces her loneliness and helps others find the fun and joy in everyday life. Readers will fall in love with Chloe as she falls in love with the radio station and the misfits who call it home.”
