Summary from Goodreads:

Big-hearted Chloe Camden is the queen of her universe until her best friend shreds her reputation and her school counselor axes her junior independent study project. Chloe is forced to take on a meaningful project in order to pass, and so she joins her school's struggling radio station, where the other students don't find her too queenly. Ostracized by her former BFs and struggling with her beloved Grams's mental deterioration, lonely Chloe ends up hosting a call-in show that gets the station much-needed publicity and, in the end, trouble. She also befriends radio techie and loner Duncan Moore, a quiet soul with a romantic heart. On and off the air, Chloe faces her loneliness and helps others find the fun and joy in everyday life. Readers will fall in love with Chloe as she falls in love with the radio station and the misfits who call it home.

(I'm testing out a new review format, somewhat shorter, quicker to read)

My Thoughts:

The Good:
Chloe is one bubbly, happy, “wears her heart on her sleeve” girl. She has passions in life like fantastic vintage shoes, her family, and eventually she learns to love radio. As I got a few chapters into this book I felt a smile spreading on my lips, like “this is going to be good.” It reminded me a bit of those shows like Honey, Radio, Take The Lead, etc, where one person inspires change and saves the program.

The Bad:
The main character Chloe was a little hard to fall for at first. She was perhaps a little too bubbly and air-headish for me at first but you quickly grow to love her. I would have liked to have felt a little stronger connection to the love interest Duncan, but he was still a very sweet guy.

The Gist:
Welcome Caller, This is Chloe is a fun, fast read. Don’t expect anything too deep, just sit back and enjoy some light entertainment.

4 out of 5 stars!
