I read this way back when, in middle school probably, at the pressure of my friends. I finally gave in and borrowed the book from one of them. I don't know if it was the mean, horrible girls or that I wanted to be in Dylan's position, but I read through this story every second I could get at lightning speed. I like this book, and the other books in this series are just as great. I think I stopped reading after book 5, but I'm sure they are just as good!

O MY GOSH! I luv luv luv this book! It was a great read, I finished this book in under 2 hours. I've read the whole series and they are all extremely well written. They're funny, witty, clever, and captivating. The characters are relatable and hilarious. Once you read The Clique, you'll want to read the whole series. I reccomend it to anyone at least 9 years old. But, I doubt boys would like it, or parents. Happy reading!
The best book ever!

This book reminded me of friend problems I'm having, taking away the designer clothes and mansions. It taught me what to do and what not to do, and what to be and what not to be. In this book I most look up to Dylan, I think the mean things she said in the book was because all she wanted to do was to be friends with Massie. She'd do anything to fit in with her. I think Massie acts mean to hide her insecurities.
Overall, I looooove this book. I highly reccomend it to people that are dealing with their own "cliques".

This is an AMAZING book! But, if you don't like anything too girly than you probably won't like it. This is about a group of girls called The Pretty Committee who are in the seventh grade and are at the top of the popularity of their class. This is such a great book, if you like this one then you should really read all the other books in the Clique series. Trust me, when you start to read the book you will not want to put it down.

Ehmagawd.! This book is pretty amazing. I dont usually read books with characters younger than my current age. But this book is cute. Middle schoo girls already know how to rock their socks! Their alpha-ness amazes me. AND, the movie made it better than ever. I wish they make the other sequels into movies too. The book is hilarious and sad at the same time. And I love how Massie can be soooo mean and nice at the same time. My fave character would be Massie. I also love how they can like theyre in highschool but in fact theyre just middle schoolers. Its like the mini version of gossip girl. Loved it!
The Best Series EVER!!!

The clique is about the pretty Comitee. The Pretty Comittee rules the school. There are only 5 people in the group. They rule the school. Everyone wants to be like them. They are all very rich. You don't want to be an LBR. That means you are a loser beyond repair. This book tells about 5 girls life.
I LOVED this book. I think that this book would be good for teenage girls. It will relate to your life. Or someone you know at least. This book isn't like any book i've ever read. It's very original and unique. I'm look forward to anything Lisi Harrison writes. Everyone and anyone should read this book!
The Clique by Lisi Harrison
Reader reviewed by Megan
Rich girl Massie is ticked off. She's missing out on her friends' Labor Day shopping spree and spa visit, because her father's friend is moving into their guest house with his family. Just because their daughter, Claire, is starting seventh grade at Massie's school, Massie is expected to pal around with her. Never mind that the new girl is a loser in old Keds and overalls who will never fit into Massie's tight circle. So that friend thing? It's never going to happen.
Meanwhile, Claire is nervous. Westchester, New York seems like a new planet compared to Orlando, Florida. And Massie and her friends are the opposite of welcoming. At school, Claire finds all the students dressed identically, and expensively. Massie's group is all about designer wear --- a whole new concept for Claire.
Massie's friends do a number on Claire, including viciously sneaking dabs of red paint onto the back of Claire's white jeans. When Claire's embarrassed male teacher sends her directly to the nurse's office, Massie's friends give her the wrong directions, sending her bumbling into the photography class darkroom.
The clique continues in its unrelentingly cruel tricks on Claire. Claire, however, earns a certain secret grudging respect by handling the harassment with graceful pride. Massie would never admit it to anyone, but she starts to feel a tiny magnetic pull to the new girl, and even feels the slightest twinge of remorse at the way she and her friends treat her. That doesn't change their behavior, though.
In the meantime, Claire wishes deep down that Massie and her pals could be her friends. Instead, she buddies up with fun and funny Layne, who is also not A-list. That friendship ends, though, when Massie steals Claire's new (and only) friend.
Claire enjoys the rare occasions when she is accepted into Massie's group, but she inevitably pays for the pleasure by being targeted with mean pranks by them afterward. Claire's grace under pressure finally cracks, and she deals Massie some payback, sinking low for revenge.
THE CLIQUE is a fun, fast read. The girls slowly reveal that they are more than the cardboard characters they appear to be. Claire is classy and intelligent, but occasionally shows some lapses in judgment. Massie and her friends gradually let slip intriguing hints that they are not quite the shallow monsters they seem.

The Clique is a great series of betrayal, cliques, adn boys. When a poor new-comer named Claire, moves into Massie's guest house she fears she won't have anytime for her friends unless she drags this LBR(loser beyond repair) along. And that is NOT an option. When her social status drops she will do any thing to regain it, and I mean anything. And after all, she is Massie Block. And Massie Block always got what she wanted... Right?
