Genre: Young Adult Fiction, Chick-Lit
Rating: 4/5 stars
Goodreads Summary: "Big-hearted Chloe Camden is the queen of her universe until her best friend shreds her reputation and her school counsellor 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 Gram’s mental deterioration, lonely Chloe ends up holding 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 joy and fun 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."
- I've never read a book about a radio station whatsoever. First of all, the cover's gorgeous. When I saw the book, I screamed and fangirled inside and had to buy it. Then, I found that Shelley Coriell wrote this as her debut novel. I read Goodbye Rebel Blue a week ago, and I needed to read this to give me more of her fantastic writing skills.
- I've read better chick-lit novels. This one didn't have a big story going on. It was just about Chloe getting over everything and going through a new beginning.
- I did adore the romance. Duncan and Chloe were perfect together and I rate the romance a 4.5/5, which is really acceptable in my opinion.
- In my world, the plot, characters and romance is the most important and this book definitely had a good 2/3 of them. The characters were good and hilarious, thanks to Shelley Coriell's humour, but the plot wasn't really there.
- This was a good, quick read!
