Review for Welcome Caller, This is Chloe by Shelley Coriell

Description : 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.

Review : A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. That is what this book is! Chloe is real, in highschool there are not many people who can stay optimstic when their bestfriend bashes you and tries to publically humiliate you but somehow Chloe overcomes it all.

Chloe is truly a character to look up to in this book. She takes it all in stride and never lets anyone see her down. She may go home and cry over everything she has lost with her two best friends since childhood but she will not let them see her down. She dresses like she does every other day * amazing * and holds her head high. When her life kind of gets hard due to a new counselor she has to improvise and work for the school radio station again she shines. The crew Duncan, Haley,Frick/Frack, Taysom and most of all Clementine who  doesn't really think she has what it takes but after her first time on the air she does get some people to respond to her.

As her show gets more and more attention and she falls more and more for Duncan she realizes she is happy. She loves doing her show, hanging out with the crew, and spening time with Duncan. Clementine kind of warms up to her but still thinks she will fail. Chloe has good ideas to get them more people to listen. She is someone again who people are drawn to and can't really explain it. She has that kind of personality and she doesn't let something that bothers her show.

Throughout this book it takes on high school in many ways that kids do today. There is the popular crowd that owns the school and makes people feel bad about themselves and the everyday problems of a normal highschool teenager and she shows them to let them think what they want and be above it all be yourself.

I loved this book and if you like something cute, funny and different this is your book!
