Welcome, Caller, This Is Chloe by Shelley Coriell - ADVISABLE

Coriell, Shelley Welcome, Caller, This Is Chloe. 320 pgs. Amulet Books, 2012. $16.95. Language: PG-13 Sexual Content: PG-13 Violence: PG-13.

Chloe Camden is on top of the world -- popular, bubbly, and known for being genuinely nice (if occasionally self-centered), she is one of the reigning queens of her high school. But when her best friend begins a smear campaign, Chloe quickly finds herself dethroned. To top it off, her independent study project is axed, so she has to join the school's troubled radio station in the hopes of rescuing her chance to graduate. As she learns how to connect with the lovable band of misfits on the station and develops her own call-in radio show, she discovers who she is and how to be a better friend.

This is a cute, uplifting book with a nice romance, good character growth, and enough serious moments to keep it from being too frothy.
