'The Nine Lives of Chloe King' includes alcohol, sexual desire, violence and teen drug use
“The Nine Lives of Chloe King” is not a book for young adults. The language alone would not pass a PG-13 movie rating as there are more than on F-bombs dropped along with several vulgar references to scat as a swear word.
Beyond the language issue, Chloe King is a hyper-sexualized 16 year old. Her thoughts are only on the one thing that is usually associated with boys of her age, and one sequence in the book leaves the reader wondering for a brief bit how far she actually went.
People may point to J.D. Salinger’s “Catcher in the Rye” as a classic book of literature that was popular among teens for its language, and they may point to Vladimir Nabakov’s “Lolita” as an example of a character in fiction who was underaged and hypersexualized, but “Nine Lives” will not change anyone’s life. It will never be mistaken for literature.
Adults can only hope that real teens aren’t like they are depicted in “Nine Lives.” Underage drinking is an essential part of the plot and teen drug use also comes up. All in all, this book becomes difficult to read in public.
That being said, ABC Family’s adaptation of “The Nine Lives of Chloe King” is an enjoyable romp through King’s metamorphosis from normal student to the cat woman responsible for uniting… her people, the Jackals and possible humans though none of that is made clear through the ten episodes.
Unfortunately, the series was cancelled meaning the only way to find out more about the characters and their world is through the books. If you are not offended by any of the above, then the books are interesting. Just avoid giving them to the young adult in your life unless they are already into rated-R movies.
