Short for Chameleon by Vicki Grant

Yup! This is one of the Reading Riot Books. So right now only 7% of the people voted this book as their favourite Reading Riot Book and I’m one of them. I hope this post will make you change your mind because I was suggested this book at my school library so i will suggest all you guys Short for Chameleon.

I’m probably a social media wannabe but I was going through some funny posts and I saw a post that kinda relates to this book. So the post is about this mall in Japan where you can RENT a boyfriend to accompany you while you are shopping and apparently they have these type of things around the WORLD and I’m kinda shook. Do you know why it is called Short for CHAMELEON? Cam Redden is something kinda like a chameleon. It’s his job as a part-time employee of the Almost Family Surrogate Agency to blend into other people’s lives, whether he’s hired to play a bereaved-but-stoic grandson or a client’s kid brother. So it’s kinda like rent-a-relative that isn’t really your relative but is considered to be your relative because he’s hired for being your relative;)

Short for Chameleon is a fast-paced read accelerated by Cam’s humorous and brief chapters that almost always end in a cliffhanger. Yet beneath all the joy, the happy characters there is an whisper of sadness. As layers are peeled from each character, unexpected things such as suicide and abandonment unfolds.
