February Meeting: GET A LIFE CHLOE BROWN by Talia Hibbert

Location visible to members

Hey Mochas! This month we’re discussing GET A LIFE CHLOE BROWN by Talia Hibbert. As always, you are welcome to join even if you have not read/finished the book.




Chloe Brown is a chronically ill computer geek with a goal, a plan, and a list. After almost—but not quite—dying, she’s come up with seven directives to help her “Get a Life”, and she’s already completed the first: finally moving out of her glamourous family’s mansion. The next items?

* Enjoy a drunken night out.
* Ride a motorcycle.
* Go camping.
* Have meaningless but thoroughly enjoyable sex.
* Travel the world with nothing but hand luggage.
* And... do something bad.

But it’s not easy being bad, even when you’ve written step-by-step guidelines on how to do it correctly. What Chloe needs is a teacher, and she knows just the man for the job.
