Chloe had always been the perfect daughter. Diligent, obedient, good at caring for the other children when Mom wasn’t home. She always worked hard and did everything she was asked.
But she couldn’t please her mother and the parade of stepfathers. It seemed like the harder she tried, the worse the abuse got.
Chloe had known for a long time that she was two people. The Chloe who watched and the Chloe who experienced. She had been watching for so long, she wasn’t sure she could feel anything anymore. But if she can’t overcome her past and start living in the real world, she knows she will lose herself forever.
— I love that P.D. Workman takes you into the darker sides of life and makes you realize after reading one of her books that you shouldn’t judge someone by how they act or look because you don’t know all that they have been through. Chloe is a very shocking and riveting story about all the risks one girl will take just to try and keep a part of her family together, no matter what it costs her. This book will have you not wanting to put it down until the end because you can’t bear to not know what is going to happen next.
—This is one of the more disturbing stories I have ever read… I don’t think I will ever forget Chloe’s story.
—It feels like I’m reading about my best friend or a family member. I’m thinking about the characters even when I’m not reading the book. [P.D. Workman’s] writing style captivates me like no other.
—I could never be as strong as Chloe, the way she grows throughout the book with her strength and learning how to overcome the tragic things that took place in her life. I kept wanting to know more… [it] made my heart happy. Thank you so much for another great read!
