Waiting On Wednesday {3}



Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Welcome, Caller, This Is Chloe by Shelley Coriell
Published May 1st by Amulet Books




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.

  1. I like the bright colours of the cover too and the radio station aspect to the story.

  2. OH MY GOD I LOVED RFR! I was obsessed with that show and totally wanted Question Mark haha. I was given an ARC of this and just finished it a few days ago, I think you'll like it if you like RFR! It's a really cute, fun read that touches on some serious things - my review will be up in a week or so closer to the release date, but it's a good one.

    Great pick!

  8. This does sound like a really cute read. I'm always looking for a good fluffier book to break up all those weighty dystopic, end-of-the-world, life 'n death books. :) Thanks so much for visiting my WoW!

Hey, you there, yes you ;)

Thanks for commenting! This is seriously awesome and I promise to try my hardest to get back to you, so do check back if you had a question or something to discuss!

Sadly, this is an award free blog. I really, really appreciate the thought and offer but with grade twelve and other activities as well as blogging, I don't really have all the spare time in the world. But thank you so much for the thought!

Seriously, though. Check back because I love to reply to comments ;)

Ellen.
