    1 thought on “Becoming Chloe”

    1. 17-year-old Jordy--a runaway after coming out to his homophobic parents--didn't know it was going to change his life when he saves a beautiful blond girl from rape. Suddenly he's stuck taking care of Chloe--which is not her real name but is preferred over her real one--who is strangely childlike although incredibly smart and determined at times. Jordy's got problems of his own, too, but he can't help feeling that he must protect Chloe, that something terrible has happened to her and that she is [...]

    2. This book was nice.Not my favorite.But it was a good book.Finding the beauty in the world; thats something i'd love to accomplish.But I don't need to travel 1000 miles. Beauty is all around me (:

    3. This book was beautiful. The idea is that these two homeless kids who've been beat up by life (literally) get together and end up going on a road trip to try to decide if there is enough beauty in life to want to keep living. I was impressed by the author's portrayal of the beauty of nature, the kindness of strangers, and also the carelessness of people and the deliberate cruelty of people to one another: she puts them all in, and doesn't try to make it all good or all bad. I loved the character [...]

    4. Edit: Changing the shelves -- Chloe isn't a manic pixie. She's just childish.Edit Edit: I wrote a really fangirlish review and saved it on my comp. I'll post it although keep in mind I wrote it after finishing the book and it will be very, very fangirlish. And since I read this book like a year ago I am also very naive and childish in it. Please no comments on some of the stuff I will say, such as my bashing of N&E's No Kiss List. I decided to post the review uncensored -- a glimpse into wha [...]

    5. Becoming Chloe is one of those books that gives you hope in the world we live in, that even if it fells like the world is crashing down around us sometimes and we're nothing short of loosing it all, there is still beauty in it. Beauty that is endless. Beauty that gives you hope no matter what the situation. From the first page, the reader is thrown into the world of Jordy, a boy who's just about lost it all. He's homeless and has no money to speak, as well as a big cut in his head that he doesn' [...]

    6. Stick with this one. It may seem to take a whole to get its groove, but by the end its message of love and redemption are quite profound and touching.

    7. Becoming Chloe is one of the books that have been sitting on my shelf for way too long now. Despite my heavy TBR I find myself that time scouring for back titles and was able to pick this one up.Becoming Chloe surprised me. Just when I was expecting a typical road trip story, I was given a powerful story about two homeless teens with dark pasts.“Nothing wrong with the Grand Canyon, nothing wrong with wanting to see the ocean. Nothing wrong with big beautiful things. But sometimes beauty can be [...]

    8. This is not what I usually read but I thought I'd try something new and different and I'm glad I did.This book made a whole lot of difference to me. It's one of those books that make you see the world differently like you've never seen it before. Even if slightly. There are so many beautiful things in our world, not just from the exterior but from the interior that we take for granted or not really 'look' at them carefully.Jordy and Chloe are very unique yet relatable characters. I loved how spe [...]

    9. A very sensitive, poignant read was a great break from senseless YA romances with a girl who love TWO guys:-PIt's a story about a guy called Jordan who has left home and is living on the streets. He doesn't have a care in life until one day he rescues a girl from being harrassed. The girl, Wanda who doesn't like her name and on Jordy's suggestion changes it to Chloe, seems very innocent, she doesn't know what's happening to her and yet sometimes she surprises Jordy with displays of extraordinary [...]

    10. This story was just so sweet and lovely, it does make you realise there are more beautiful things in the world even when you think everything in the world is falling around you.I liked this book more because it wasn't a love story it was an unlikely friendship and it was beautiful. They grew a bond you couldn't break and he stuck by her no matter what and helped her more than anyone else would.A lovely short read, I would recommend it to anyone

    11. I honestly thought that this book would turn out to be just a bad romance novel between a ditz and some guy she meets. I stand corrected; Becoming Chloe is amazing! It's a book that proves that everyone in the world has a story to tell, and that to be happy isn't just popping antidepressants or going to therapy, it's about doing what you love and following your dreams with the people you care about the most. This is a book everyone needs to read at least once, it's excellent!

    12. **3.5 STARS**I'm conflicted about this one. This was a pretty cute book; it was nothing that special though. Personally, i think it took way too long to pick up, but when it did it was okay. Most of the time I was just waiting for something significant to happen, but at some times it really was such a beautiful story. Overall, the book felt a little childlike to me, but at certain points when the deeper side of things were explored, I really enjoyed those moments.

    13. I love love love this book. I read it in the midst of my teen angst and it opened up a whole new world of happiness for me. Catherine Ryan Hyde is an amazing writer to check out if you like the stories of troubled youth who learn and teach and grow through others.

    14. 3.5 This is a hard book to review. Sweet and beautiful in some ways. Dark and disturbing in others. Overall I really liked it.

    15. I'm rereading Becoming Chloe right after the first reading.There is so much in this book! I don't really know what to write about it for fear of giving things away.

    16. I first read this book when I was in middle school. It was the first book I read that explored the idea of suicide, it also helped develop my yearning for travel.The writing is very simplistic, so are the characters and character development. But it's simple in a nice, heart warming way. I immediately liked Jordan (I too get easily attached to others, and somehow become the mother figure in my group of friends), and I also adored Chloe. It was nice seeing them travel by any means, meeting amazin [...]

    17. Jordy and Chloe are both homeless and living in New York City. They meet during a horrific event and become close friends. Jordy decides to help Chloe deal with her difficult past by traveling across the United States to look for the beauty in the world. Jordy, although doing it for Chloe, learns about beauty himself during the journey. He realizes that most things can be looked at as beautiful. Chloe, on the other hand, sees that many things can be taken more than one wayr example, rain makes t [...]

    18. I read this book while sitting on the beach in St. Martin and it made me remember once again what a wonderful life I have. Not that this was so dark and deep but that there are people who have had it so much tougher and seem to find a way to find some beauty in the world. Jordy and Chloe were two of those lucky people who find someone in their life to accept them the way they are, no matter how imperfect and love them anyway. I too have that in my life but I'm fortunate to have not gone through [...]

    19. I absolutely loved this book. It really spoke to me and inspired me. I think it spoke to me in ways I don't even know, because I just finished it and I'm sitting here crying and I really don't know why. This book inspired me to see the beauty in EVERYTHING no matter my situation. It inspired me to love people and really how far a little act of kindness can go. It inspired me to travel and take risks, because why not? The world is crazy, beautiful, and terrible all at once. At the same time, I do [...]

    20. Because I work at a high school library, I often read YA books so I can recommend them to my students who might be interested in certain books. I'm sure that young adults would relate to this book, but I felt it was a bit of fantasy. Possibly this could really happen, but probably not. This author uses all kinds of social situations in her books and I do enjoy her enlightening me on situations I have not and most likely will never be in. But our students have lots of these same life situations a [...]

    21. Top Notch AuthorCatherine Ryan Hyde is a fabulous writer. I've read so many of her books and haven't come across one that hasn't touched me. Jordy and Chloe travel across the U.S. With literally just the shirts on their backs. They meet all kinds of beautiful people along the way.

    22. Started but almost stoppedAuthor always takes on significant subjects, which I like. The subject of this boom was so far from my comfort zone that I almost put it down. Very dark and very sad. But as I read on my eyes were opened to some awful places! But finished reading it and it finally have me some hope

    23. MemorableI loved this book. It showed me that there are good people in this world. Jordan loved and took care of Chloe. He didn't have to but he chose to,like she was his little sister. Chloe was kind and gentle. I believe she was an empath,sensitive to people and animals. I enjoyed their journey together. Memorable.

    24. Good readAs always Catherine Ryan Hyde delivers. This book did not hold my attention like some of her others and it took time to connect but all in all it is another of her exceptional books!

    25. I read Becoming Chloe for the first time years ago, but I found that I have greater appreciation for it now that I'm older. It may be a "young-adult" book, but it deals with pretty mature themes and hits deeper the older you are.

    26. This novel is recommended to those who have personal experience with being abused as a child in horrific manners. This novel has the ability to bring closure to those who are struggling to overcome their hurt pasts.

    27. Why couldn't they have said what was wrong with Chloe? I was kinda hoping to find out why she behaved the way she did.

    28. Easy, young adult novel with some pretty heavy topics. I enjoyed the story mostly for their cross country adventure which stirred my wanderlust.

    29. The happy and sad of Jordy and ChloeAnother wonderful story from Catherine Ryan, she knows people and life and the world and she writes so well about them.
