Becoming Chloe is an unforgettable story like no other

Jordy and Chloe (formally known as Wanda), both have very mysterious pasts. When Jordy leaves home after being disowned by his parents for being gay, he finds himself barely surviving in a rundown cellar in New York City. Jordy does not realize he is sharing this cellar...
Jordy and Chloe (formally known as Wanda), both have very mysterious pasts. When Jordy leaves home after being disowned by his parents for being gay, he finds himself barely surviving in a rundown cellar in New York City. Jordy does not realize he is sharing this cellar with someone until one night when he rescues a young girl (renamed) Chloe from being raped. Chloe soon returns the favor by saving Jordy's life. They to live together and become very close, and Jordy realizes that Chloe has not had your average "rough life". She has seen and experienced things that no other human being should ever have to go through. She has secrets of her past that she refuses to talk about. Although it seems she should be bitter, Chloe is far from that. She is innocent and childlike, almost ignorant to all of the terrible things that she has experienced. Her amazing personality and charisma seems to rub off on everyone she meets. Chloe is far from perfect though. She seems certain that the world is a dark and terrible place and her life may not even be worth living. After a psychiatrist tells Jordy that there may not be any hope for Chloe, Jordy decides that he will show Chloe all of the beautiful things in America to prove to her that the world is actually a beautiful place. They travel across the country hitchhiking and bike-riding, going from landmark to landmark and city to city while meeting some really incredible people on the way. Jordy hopes that their adventure full of self realization will successfully show Chloe all of the beauty that the world has to offer and prove to her that her life is indeed worth living.

I really enjoyed reading this book, mainly because it had such an absorbing plot. The characters were extremely interesting and likable. At times, i found myself so into the book that i was unable to put the book down, especially towards the end. The only complaint i have about this book is that there were some sections of the book that did not keep my attention very well. All and all, i think Becoming Chloe is an excellent book that I'm sure i will find myself rereading eventually.

    The book is good! I do like story a lot. I thought the book was funny, little sad, cool story. I do like the character nsme jordon and chloe make a great friend to each othet and help each other through the trouble situation in the storyline. I say the author did good. The author wrote about find someone in your life then help thst person out and go on a road trip together.

    Amazing

    The book is very intriguing and different from other teenage novels. It's very heartbreaking and touching, always pulling at the strings of your heart. There are times where you want to put yourself in their shoes, and feel how it's like to be them. There are also times in the story where you would feel extremely sorry for one of the two main characters, meaning this adds more emotion. It's overwhemingly touching and caring, seeing how Jordan is gay but also treating Chloe like his treasure. This book has been one of the best I've read.

    An Intense and Heartfelt Book

    Jordy lives by himself in a city basement. Or, atleast, he thinks he does until he rescues a girl from being raped in the street and realizes that she's been in the basement with him all along. The girl is Wanda, who after admitting she hates her name, becomes Chloe. Chloe is a simple girl and she doesn't understand anything until something drastic forces her to. Together, Jordy and Chloe leave the cellar and begin to make a life for themselves. As they travel across the country, they begin to realize that though the world can be a horrible place, there are many good things in it. Becoming Chloe is one of those books where the cover instantly intriuged me and I had to have the book before I even knew what it was about. In this case, it turned out to be a good thing. I found Becoming Chloe to be an intense and heartfelt book. There's very little time spent on unneeded detail and I enjoyed reading about the experiences Jordy and Chloe share, This is one book I won't be forgetting soon and I really hope you give it a chance too.

    Inspirational

    I think this book is very inspirational. Not only did I very much enjoy reading it, but it taught me that the world is beartiful and that there really are plenty of caring people. It is uplifting and teaches one not to take things for granted.
