The One – A Chloe Gamble novel
Reading Level: Young Adult
Publisher: Simon Pulse (March 10, 2009)
Rating: 4.5 stars
Chloe Gamble knows three things: she’s better than the tiny Texas town she grew up in; there’s just one person she can trust; and she wants to be famous.
And what Chloe wants…Chloe gets.
Review: The One by Ed Decter was a pretty good book. I found it really interesting, and it totally kept me hooked. I’m definately excited for the sequel coming this December. The plot really keeps you hooked as well, though I felt it had its downsides just to the extremes it seemed to go to. The whole story is upon the basis of Chloe wanting to escape her home town of Spurlock, Texas. The fact that they just get in the car, and drive to Hollywood, and with all the stuff she does seemed to set back the book a bit in my opinion. I felt the sections from her agent kind of took away from the book though, and slowed down a bit.
Overall: Overall, I thought The One by Ed Decter was a great book that I would suggest.
