My Name is Chloe by Melody Carlson

This is a guest review, read and written by Sophia Marie, who blogs at Teens Live for Jesus. For a full bio and links to her personal sites, please progress to the end of the review.

The Synopsis:

Typical Chloe: “Some people think I am dark. I suppose they’re a little frightened by me. By my appearance, or my opinions, or the way I look them straight in the eye without blinking or turning away, or even my music, which can be, I suppose, unsettling.”

Chloe likes being different. She likes the way she looks, even if it throws some people off. Like her mom, who keeps pressuring her to be more mainstream. Or Tiffany, who seems bent on taking Chloe down. But Chloe is confused and bewildered inside. While jamming with her friends, she finds herself being pulled two directions. Which out of the two, Wicca or Christianity, provide more answers?

Sophia’s Review:

My Name is Chloe is a story full of hope. Chloe finds peace through acknowledging Christ as Lord of her life, but that doesn’t just make all the problems go away. From bullies to mad friends, Chloe learns that, no matter how hard the trial, God will direct her path. The book deals with serious issues like bullying, conforming, Wicca, and relationships with parents.
