WOW! This author REALLY hit home. I think she stalked me and took my life as an example for this book. (At least the first part of it) Most certainly one of my all time favorites.
I hate to say this, but I actively disliked this book. If I wasn't reading it for a class, I would have put it down after the first page. I was really trying to keep an open mind since I don't read much Christian/Inspirational fiction, but I just couldn't ignore the poor quality of writing. The dialog felt soooo forced and stiff and…unnatural. And I really didn't buy Chloe's narrative voice. It felt too much like an author trying to fit certain themes into a character's mouth rather than the wor ...more

Being a Christian who doesn't read many YA Christian-themed books, I thought I'd give this a try. I maybe shouldn't have.

For starters, this book is really, very poorly written. It was cheesy and forced. Characters in this book didn't speak like normal people and just about all dialogue felt unnatural. The whole thing kind of felt like an after school special put on by a local preacher; "Hey kids, it's cool to be Christian! Just ask this punk rocker g

Another really great book. This book is about a young girl who is sort of a rebel. She does what she want's and doesn't care for anything but herself. Chloe is a great guitar player, she plays and it's sort of her passion. Her friend does witchcraft, really scary, her friend believes that the witchcraft will make her life better, but so far she's snot doeing so good. One day when Chloe was walking in the cemetary she fell to her knees and asked God for forgivness and asked Christ to come into h ...more

After reading the Kim series I decided to pick up a Chloe book.
Chloe looks like your average rebel: she's got piercings, dyed hair, and those black clothes. She freaks her mom out and makes others keep away. She likes being different, but now all she wants is a friend-and some answers.
But after a close encounter with God and meeting up with some "different" liking friends, wouldn't you know it? Chloe Miller is starting a rock band-but where is it going? All the way to stardom or just the neighb

this book is probably the best book I have read all year, I choice this book because I was browsing though the library and found this book, I was attracted to the front cover so I read the back and I could help myself, it is about a girl named Chloe who has gone though so much, lost everything and as soon as she is about to give up she is confronted by god, with her guitar in her hand she is determined to spread the word of god to other people who were in her shoes before god came alone and save ...more

I really liked this book! It is very interesting. This book has very dark topics in it,more then I was expecting but it wasn't bad. I love Chloe! She is my favorite of the "diary of a teenage girl"girls. I loved reading all of her poetry /prayers/songs! This book I feel like has a lot of set up for the next 3 books of series, but it is not so much that this feels like this is not even a book. It still feels like a book. I really related to Chloe like not 100% but a lot! I am excited to read the ...more
Jul 31, 2010 Alexa rated it did not like it
Did not like it at all.. Talks about religion way to much, I felt like it was trying to shove it down my throat. That the book wanted me also to convert into a Christian.
A girl trying to figure out where she belongs. She lost all her friends, but then found a new crowd. Started a girl band and thinks Jesus/god is living her life.. That with Jesus in her heart .. Her life would be better.
Blahblahblah, boring .

This was a really good book. Seriously, just like Who I Am, this book is written in diary form. It's really, really good.The book sorta starts with Chloe.....this teenage girl who has gone through alot of hurt and she's seen as rebellious. Through the help of her teenage mentor (Caitlin O' Conner who is Chloe's brother's ex-girlfriend), Chloe eventually becomes a Christian and decides to start a sort of punk rock band with her friends. Well, I'll stop there, but this is a really good book.
The one who laughs alot. :)

Jul 16, 2010 Sorina rated it it was amazing
This book alone brought me closer to God it was something I desperately needed at the time and I am so thankful I found this book. Chloe's testimony and how she brought her friends to Christ was more of a lesson to me than I was willing to listen to at the time I was reading this book

I loved this book! I really enjoyed the Caitlyn series and I was eager to start the Chloe series, and this book was so good! Chloe remind me of how I was before I was saved and ever a little of how I am now. I really love this and I'm excited to read the rest!

This is one of my favorite books ever. When I first read it I was a teenager and related so closely to Chloe. Her frustrations and feeling lost, her conversion.... I latched on to this book. Now I'm enjoying following her journey with her band.

Chloe Miller has a crazy life, but she is a likable protagonist, and her first story is a triumph. I can't wait to read the remaining books in her part of the series.

Finding Jesus can solve your problems, not all since you have to be Christ-like to "make" it work.
