Summary from Goodreads:

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.

My Short and Sweet Thoughts:

WCTIC is a fun, fast read. Your life won't be forever changed but you will smile and have a generally good time spending a few hours with Chloe and the misfits. My favorite part of WCTIC are the characters. Even though Chloe is going through a rough time she stays pretty positive through out the book and even though she makes a few mistakes along the way she really is a good person. Duncan Moore is a bit of a mystery at first but I liked him through out the book as well. If you have had reservations about this book because of the corny cover don't. It is well worth the time you will invest to read it.
