Review for 'Nine Lives of Chloe King' the book



Chloe King is a normal girl. she goes to class (most of the time), fights with her mom, and crushes on a boy . . . or two. But around her sixteenth birthday, Chloe finds out that perhaps she isn't so normal after all. There's the heightened night vision, the superfast reflexes---oh, and the claws.

As she discovers who she is---and where she comes from---it is clear she is not alone. And someone is out to get her.

Chloe has nine lives, But will nine be enough?

My review:

I started watching the show on ABC and thought it would be nice to read the book. So, I bought it today along with another series. As I Began to read, one of the things that struck me was the beginning. The beginning is different in the book than the show. In the show, she is pushed off. However, in the book, she is with her friends Amy and Paul in the tower. From there, she falls out the window. Her mother finds out about this and isn't very happy. The book just makes the character more than what the show portrays her. She is a sassy, rebellious teenager. It also seems (as usual) that the book has more to offer. There is a lot of things that the show doesn't have. But then again, the show did cut out some of the language that the book has.

Rating: 3/5
