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.Praise for Welcome, Caller, This is Chloe"Debut novelist Coriell shows sparkling wit and great skill in creating complex characters with memorable personalities. Chloe’s emotional growth is believable, and her attraction to a quiet, mysterious boy at the radio station adds spice and tension to the story."--Publishers Weekly

For more of my reviews, visit Books For YA!Okay, to be honest, I really don't like Chloe in the first few chapters of this book. She's annoying, self-centered and she just won't stop talking. So when her friends, Brie and Merce, left her, I clearly understand why. They ignored Chloe and isolated her...
After reading 3 very heavy stories about rape and suicide, it was with great pleasure that I picked up "Welcome, Caller, This is Chloe". I was prepared for a mindless romantic comedy. While there is some romance and quite a bit of humor, there is also a serious and thoughtful story underneath. Th...
*2.5 out of 5 starsI don't really know what to say about this book. I honestly didn't enjoy it much. I really wanted to. It sounded really good. I wanted to fall in love with Chloe as the synopsis suggests, but really I didn't like her at all. By the end I didn't dislike her as much, but I still jus...
