The adventures of Little Missy Chloe continue! Whether it’s starting up her own blog, or being whisked away for a family ski vacation, Chloe is always finding new friends and worrying about how to hold on to old ones. Will Alex stay true even when he’s at another school?
I enjoyed this a tiny bit more than the first book, but I do believe this is the end between Chloe and me. I might be too old for this series, but I honestly don’t think I would have been too fan of it even at a younger age.
The problem is that the reactions of the characters are always so exaggerated, and I’m not just talking about Chloe. Chloe is a happy-go-lucky kind of person. Yes, she faces challenges and learns from her mistakes (sometimes), but she lives life without adult worries. Granted, she’s still a teenager, so she can do whatever she wants without too many consequences, but she is not the type of person I can connect with.
I did, however, appreciate her new friendship with Fatouma, because the latter is a good influence on her, a better one than Anissa, that’s for sure. Chloe is growing in a way, but popularity and looking good are still very important to her. I mean, the title is literally ‘‘Chloe: The Queen of High School’’ so that was to be expected. Fortunately, she is putting her newly acquired high status to use by helping other kids fit in.
As always, the illustrations are adorable and make me want to give this a higher rating than it deserves. But it’s not enough to make me continue with this series. The only reason why I read it in the first place was because I had it with me to review, but now it’s time to say goodbye. So bye bye.
