Josh Miller's kid sister, Chloe, is not your average teen. To some, she's a frustrated rebel; to others, a free-spirited freak. Chloe has questions and doubts that take you places most people never think to go...like the local cemetery. After a personal encounter with God--on His terms, at last--she surrenders her will and her heart to Him, then sets out on a spiritual mission.
Guitar in hand, Chloe finds music is the conduit for the deep feelings that pulse through her soul, and forms the girl band Redemption. Yet even for a follower of Christ, life never plays in perfect harmony. Join Chloe at the beginning of a wild ride to stardom in the Christian music industry--a place where life is unpredictable and only God knows what kind of twists and turns await you on the road ahead. 288 pages. Recommended for ages 14 and up.
Chloe, Josh Miller's younger sister, is a free spirit with funky clothes and dramatic hair. She struggles with her own identity, classmates, parents, boys, and -- her biggest question -- whether or not God is for real. But this unconventional high school freshman definitely doesn't hold back when she meets Him in a big, personal way. Refusing to change her image to fit into the "stereotypical Christian preppy mold," Chloe expresses God's love and grace through the girl band she forms, Redemption. In her development as a musician and performer, tender-hearted Chloe will learn tough lessons about following God, her heart, and her dreams.
Melody Carlson is the bestselling author of more than seventy books for teens, women, and children with total sales over 1 million. She has two grown sons and enjoys an active lifestyle of hiking, skiing, and biking. She lives in the beautiful Oregon Cascade Mountains with her husband and Labrador retriever.
Carlson has made a name for herself as a CBA novelist who actually understands teenagers; her fifth book in the Diary of a Teenage Girl series demonstrates the strong writing and soap-operatic plot elements that have made the first four novels so successful among young readers. Fans of the series may be initially distressed that Carlson abandons the adventures of Caitlin, the series' erstwhile heroine, in favor of the younger recurring character Chloe, the rebel kid sister of Caitlin's on-again, off-again boyfriend Josh. (Perhaps Caitlin, who has been dispatched to college, has grown too old for the series' core audience?) Just as Caitlin dealt with real problems such as eating disorders and dating woes, Chloe battles with a number of serious issues in this journal-cum-novel: finding Jesus, helping a friend who's messing with witchcraft, and defending herself against female bullies. Readers who agree with Chloe that Caitlin was "the perennial Pollyanna of the new millennium" will delight in this edgier, more intense, electric guitar-playing lead character. (Jan.)
