Welcome, Caller, This Is Chloe Blog Tour: Meet KDRS Staffers Chloe & Clementine


Welcome, Caller, This Is Chloe
Publisher: Amulet Books
Release date: May 1st 2012
Ages: 14+

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.



Meet KDRS Staffers Chloe & Clementine


Chloe is the talk show host of Chloe: Queen of the Universe and Heartbeats

Nickname: Poppy. Grams gave it to me when I was little because I had red-orange hair “as soft and wavy as a handful of poppy petals.”

Favorite comfort food: Twizzlers

Person (living or dead) I’d like to have dinner with: Charlie Chaplin. One of the funniest human beings of all time…and someone who did comedy without words. Brilliant.

Plans after high school: Go to college and study business and continue to work part-time at Dos Hermanas Mexican Cantina. I know I definitely don’t want to go to med school like my five older brothers and parents. Lucky for me, my family is finally starting to understand I’m different.

Favorite pair of shoes: Grass green ankle strap wedges, circa 1940

               
 Favorite movie: Haley, the arts and entertainment editor at the radio station, is on this 1939 movie kick, which she calls the “greatest year in film,” so Duncan and I have been watching a lot of oldies. I’d have to say my current favorite is the 1939 classic, Wizard of Oz. I can relate to the message about finding a “home.”

Superhero power: The ability to mend broken hearts. There are too many people hurting in this world.

Greatest fear: Being alone.

The world needs more: laughter


Clementine is the general manager and news director

Nickname: Jester Clem. Chloe came up with this idiotic nickname on one her Queen of the Universe shows. Before she died, my mom called me O My Darlin’.

Favorite comfort food: Beets. When I was younger, I’d spend summers at my grandparents’ farm in Temecula, California, where we would pick beets and can them.

Person (living or dead) I’d like to have dinner with: Edward R. Murrow, one of the greatest broadcasters of all time. His radio broadcasts from London during World War II set the standard for live news reporting for decades to come.

Plans after high school: Go to the University of Missouri at Columbia and study radio broadcasting. I’d like to own my own radio empire one day.

Favorite pair of shoes: Leather loafers from discount shoe store, circa 2010



 Favorite movie: Finding Nemo or Old Yeller. So I like sappy animal movies. What the hell’s wrong with that?

Superhero power: Invisibility. A valuable tool for an investigative journalist.

Greatest fear: School backpack with a Beretta M-9 hand gun tucked in the pencil pocket. Long story and one I won’t talk about.

The world needs more: Justice

  1. Clementine and my mom could hang out and be happy beet eaters together. I've never been a fan of them myself, but my mom ADORES them:) And I love Old Yeller right up until the end and then I pretend the shooting doesn't actually happen:)
