I went on a Chloe Boston reading frenzy last week which was easy to do and not too horribly expensive or time-consuming because most of the books were short novellas and cost no more than $3.99, in fact most were $2.99 or less. I read them in order from first to last which was arranged charmingly by author Melanie Jackson on a chronological year from Halloween to Halloween. I like the series a lot and was very entertained. I found the characters engaging, the dialogue realistic, and humorous, the background well-developed, in short everything I needed to keep reading. But one sour note in this symphony of enjoyable leisure activity kept sounding and resounding while I pressed "next page" over and over again. Chloe Boston, an aspiring writer, suffered from some basic poor grammar--one flaw cropped up repeatedly: the use of the subjective case after a pronoun e.g. "The chief looked at lardhead and I" or "Dad wanted to come home with Alex and I." I don't know whether Ms. Jackson doesn't know better, or whether her editor doesn't know better, or whether it was intentional to have the character speak this way. So many people make this mistake, it is called "over correction." In all nine books, I noted only one single instance where Chloe did NOT make that mistake.
Also she used "lay" and "lie" wrong but that has become colloquial speech now, so it is pretty acceptable.
Finally, and here I blame the people who transfer all the books into the ebook format, there were hundreds of spelling mistakes, missing words, transferred words, backward words, etc. in the nine books. I find that incredibly sloppy and insulting to the author as well as to me because I paid good money for these books, why should it be a struggle to read them?
