The Nine Lives of Chloe King

Based on the YA series by Celia Thomson, The Nine Lives of Chloe King, is ABC Family's new hit summer show. I have never read heard of the book until Kristi at The Story Siren started mentioning the show and the accompanying game. I thought it was intriguing that they were making another book to show adaptation but not particularly interested at the time...

Then I watched the first two episodes...

And it was kind of amazing. It was full of action and sets up for what could be the most ancient of tales! The introduction to the character of Chloe and what she is was really well done and the mystery underlies it all from the very opening of the show. There is also the complicated love that makes every teen book/show thrive. I would have to admit Bryan (I think that is his name) is pretty cute.

If the book is anything like the show, and a lot of book-to-show books are, it would be a fascinating read!

I am a fan of the Summer of Secrets & Lies line-up that ABC Family has in store from this action packed adaptation to the new Switched at Birth! Great contemporaries for teen content fans!
