More About Melody Carlson
I started writing "professionally" about twenty years ago. I quickly learned that I'm a fast writer and, as a result, I've published more than 200 books--with more than 6 million books sold. And it stuns me to write out those numbers today. How did that happen? I've been told I'm in the top twenty "most prolific authors" of all time. Although I'm not certain this is true, it does make me wonder--and I wonder how other authors (in previous generations) managed to write so many books without the use of a computer. Last year I won a Career Achievement Award from Romantic Times. But that doesn't mean I'm ready to retire. I have lots more books coming out and new ideas popping into my head all the time. I write from a studio right next to the house I share with my husband in Oregon. My dog Audrey goes to work with me every morning. I have to say...it's a pretty good life...and I am grateful to God for every bit of it.

Sold Out Sep 30, 2007
Great teenage stories that draw students to want to read the book. I can't keep the series of books in my classroom. As soon as it's checked in it's checked out by someone else.
The Sequel to My Name is Chloe Jun 13, 2006
Did you like what happened with the last book? I did.That's why I decided to read the next book.I liked how it started where the last book ended.I wanted to see what was going on between Chloe,Laura,and,Allie. In this one the girls start to become serious about the band and their music.They start playing gigs and they become more and more "famous." They also become serious about their faith in God.They go to church and to youth group.They have become role models. Meanwhile, Laura's pastor doesn't approve of their music.It's not "christian" enough.They're trying to fix the problem and move on but they're not sure if they can.This book was a great follow up to the previous one.
The Road to Glory Feb 10, 2006
After giving her life to God, Chloe Miller begins to face many challenges, including her music. Laura, the band's bass player, is forbidden, by her priest, to play in their band, Redemption. The priest thinks that Chloe and the band is a bad influence on Laura. He believes that Chloe's Church is teaching false doctrine and he feels that the music Chloe writes should all be about God. The problem is that Laura's priest does not even know that Chloe's music is about God. However, Laura is stuck in a situation and does not know what to do, so the band has to find another bass player while Laura tries to put the puzzle pieces together. What should she do, band or church? Everyone realizes that Laura is miserable but no one knows exactly what to do to help. That is when Chloe Miller, steps up as a friend to save the band but also help Laura's priest understand that they are all Christians. Does Chloe have enough bravery to stand up to Laura's priest? During all this confusion, Redemption, their band, receives a chance to travel to Nashville to perform for a recording company. This is when their life as celebrities begins, their entire class treats them like they are rich and famous but will it end up being anything? Will the fame disappear or will they get signed? I enjoyed reading this book because it makes you realize that no one is perfect and you have to except them for who they are inside. This book shows you how many teenagers deal with the problems that come their way. I recommend this book to any teenage girl, who has a tough time dealing with the challenges that await her.
If you're looking for a great book - look no further. May 12, 2005
This was a great book that I thoroughly enjoyed. I admit it's not for everyone's liking - it is a long book with many sub - plots. But Chloe covered some great issues. I think that Melody Carlson has done a great job!
A bit of a disappointment Jan 7, 2004
I have read all of the books in this series prior to reading Sold Out. I enjoyed the series immensely and would have recommended the books to any teenager; however, after reading Sold Out, my opinion has changed. Chloe's initial character was appealing because of her harder edge and atypical image. Unfornunately, as I read the book, I felt as though I was not reading the words of a teenager. The slang was dated, including words such as "groovy" and "pretty tough chick" as if these are typical of today's teenagers. Casual conversation throughout the story was far too structured to be that of teenage lunchtime banter, making the story seem spurious. Also, the issues in this book were either exaggerated or trivial. Few issues that Chloe faced were relatable to teenagers today. The book was trite, dated, melodramatic, and mawkishly sentimental.
