Read in January, 2007

Following her arrest for prostitution, seventeen-year-old Chloe lands in the Madeline Parker Institute for Girls. She's cut off from her family, but mostly from herself. Phillips tells the story of Chloe's disjointed life in a disjointed fashion: fragments revealed through slow therapy, emo-laced poems, and flashbacks. Chloe's mind is cluttered, thus so is her story, which is loaded with the Spanish slang learned in her neighborhood. Similar in some ways to America by E. R. Frank (as well as my own Chasing Tail Lights), Chloe Doe is about a teen with too much experience too soon in life, trying to recapture an innocence.
