It's my book! Of course it's amazing.

Debut author, J.A. Yang, tells the story of Chloe - a sixteen year-old adopted child of Hollywood royalty. Her father is a rock star, her mom is a movie star. She is a product of her environment, which can be superficial when she talks about jewelry and fashion, but thankfully Chloe has much more depth than expected of anyone in her position. When she begins searching for her birth parents, the book really takes a life of its own and Chloe becomes a girl you root for. Deep down to the core, she' ...more

EXCLUSIVELY CHLOE depicts the harsh realities of Hollywood politics without being too trashy. Chloe-Grace is a relatable and likable protagonist, a young girl caught in between the glitz of celebrity life and a desire to know what it feels like to be normal. If you’ve ever wondered what Brad and Angelina’s lot might feel like as teenagers, there is an excellent possibility—one can hope!—that they will turn out like Chloe-Grace: a down-to-earth girl who doesn’t take her glamorous situation for gr ...more

When Chloe was a baby, she was adopted by a Hollywood power couple - her mom is a famous actress and her father is a rockstar. Now she's 16, and she just found out that her parents are getting a divorce - worse, she found out because there was a picture of her father on the front of a tabloid and he was kissing another woman. Now, everywhere she goes people look at her with pity. Everyone knows her families business and she is tired of being the center of attention.

Honestly, what really drew me to the book was the cover. Although I thought the summary that was provided on the back of the book was somewhat inaccurate. I thought the book was going to mostly be about Chloe undercover, but Chloe didn't undergo her transformation until the late second half of the book. Despite the misconception, I thought it was an entertaining light read. I love reading books about Hollywood and Chloe was a great main character, she was nice, sweet, and not snotty at all.

The Good: It was way better than I expected it to be. The story line has been used a lot before, but it had it's own quirky twist to it. There are some cliches in here and it's sometimes corny... but somehow, J.A. Yang pulls it off!

The characters are awesome. Regardless if they're main or supporting, I could differentiate between all of them and I loved (except a few who I just wanted to stab with a pencil) all oth them! And Chloe... unlike all the other normal person during during the day and c

This has been in my TBR pile for ages now and I'm not really sure why, because as it turns out, Exclusively Chloe is a fun, savvy, and start studded coming of age tale, one that was highly enjoyable.

Exclusively Chloe opens up just as Chloe is learning about her parent's divorce from a celeb magazine. It's quite the understatement to say that she's shocked, because all her life she's felt that her parents were truly going to be celebs that would stick it out for the long run. Especially giv

Definitely not a really difficult book but rather, Exclusively Chloe is a book that's just meant to pass the time away. It really was quite an adorable book.

Besides how adorable it is, there were some stuff that bothered me just a tiny bit.

First of all, there were some parts of Exclusively Chloe that just didn't seem to be realistic whatsoever. The transformation that Chloe-Grace had to go through to transfer school? All she did was cut her hair short and wearing "normal" clothes. I personally d

Chloe-Grace is the adopted 16 year old daughter of major celebrities and thus a celebrity herself. When her parents announce their intention to divorce and the glare of fame becomes too much for her, Chloe decides to go undercover at a regular high school and try out an anonymous life.

There are so many books out there about normal teens finding themselves suddenly famous (fantasy wish fulfillment for many in our culture today), but this is one for the Suris and Maddoxs of the world who must year

Contrary to the back of the book, Chloe does not decide to undergo a makeunder until halfway through the book. It wasn't boring per se, but there was a lot of set up occurring and after awhile I just wanted her to leave her wealthy school and annoying best friend, Rachelle and get on with switching high schools. What's worse is that there are maybe 3-4 chapters dealing with Chloe's new life and then we hurtle towards the ending. All of a sudden, all this drama erupts and then everything is solve ...more

Ok, I admit it, I read the headlines on the magazines when I'm standing in line and I watch E! News. This book was a cute light read that I would recommend to anyone who enjoys a look into Hollywood, so if you know the names of celebrities and their children, you'll probably enjoy this book.

Chloe is relatable and even though she has a famous, expensive and fashionable lifestyle, she's nice and sweet and wasn't rich snotty girl, which I liked. I got annoyed that Chloe didn't seem to realize that

Exclusively Chloe was by no means a provocative novel but rather something to sooth the time away. When I first spotted Exclusively Chloe I immediately knew that it would be an adorable read.

Chloe-Grace was the roundabout teen that wanted to escape. J.A. Yang created a perfect scenario that is popular in the famous society—divorce. So who can blame Chloe when she wanted to escape it all. The transition from famous Chloe to everyday Lilly was slightly unrealistic as a new haircut and downgrading

I really really liked Exclusively Chloe. At first glance it might appear to be all glitz and glamor, the Hollywood Lifestyle and while that's part of it there is so much more going on than the blurb leads you to believe. For as much as Hollywood and fame don't equal a realistic life for 99% of the population, I found this story to be really believable and understandable. When is comes down to it, it's about a girl trying to find her place in the world with people that get her and like her for he ...more

Totally cute YA book. Appropriate for younger ages. I would actually recommend this to my nieces. I think it was possibly lacking in descriptive factors but that not important for this age. The story is easy to follow, I thought it could do with some twists or some drama that all gets sorted out. I'd say 3.5

Just when I thought there was nothing more to offer in the whole asian adoptee storyline, out comes J.A. Yang, who combines this with Celebrity life story, and the combination was pure gold. Asian Adoptee story with minimal angst. Wee~ Also, love Luther and the whole undercover at "normal" school to find long lost relative subplot. I thought Chloe-Grace's friends could have been better fleshed out though. For the whole novel, I felt like they never really went beyond the stock type personality.. ...more
Although the writing and the story in the book was appealing I thought it was pretty superficial and too cutesy and sugar-coated. Maybe this was the point but everything in Chloe's life ended up perfectly tied up with a pretty pink (probably Gucci) ribbon. The whole book is set in the celebrity/Hollywood tabloid world complete with red carpet references throughout, which will be insignificant in 5 or 10 years. The core of the story is good - Chloe just wants to find out where she came from and i ...more
Disappointing in a lot of aspects, but I loved the adopted family stuff! Wish there was more of that.

Meh, the premise of the book didn't apply until the second half of the book and was then rushed, the rest was just build up which got boring after awhile.

Let me start by saying this book was not necessarily my type of reading, but it IS a book that my junior-high-aged, Sweet-Valley-High-devouring younger self would have enjoyed: it's got a poor little rich girl with a heart of gold, plenty of Hollywood glitz to make you feel like you've got a window onto the rich and fabulous, and a plot packed with friend hijinks, family drama and even romance. And it has a multicultural angle to boot. Full review on Finding Wonderland: http://writingya.blogspot ...more
