Welcome, Caller, This Is Chloe by Shelley Coriell
Review by Anna, Sonoma Valley Branch
Welcome, Caller, This is Chloe by Shelly Coriell is about a popular and bubbly girl that gets kicked to the curb from her supposedly best friends. Chloe, who’s had a golden ticket to high school the whole time she’s been there, now is forced to find some new friends– and fast. When her great idea for her Junior Independent Study Project gets shot down, she’s forced to help the school radio station. Chloe finds strength in herself and learns that not everything is picture perfect, but that you can still laugh in any situation.
I thought I wouldn’t like this book, but it surprised me in a good way. On first glance it may seem like it’s just about some popular girl’s petty problems, but it turned out to be deeper and more significant. Chloe really grew and matured during the course of the book, and I liked her much better at the end than I did in the beginning. I would recommend this to girls who like books about the usual high school drama. If you’re looking for a high-suspense novel, this isn’t it.
