This book revolves around five girls: Massie Block, Kristen Gregory, Dylan Marvil, Alicia Rivera, and finally Claire Lyons, the "new girl."
Claire desperately seeks the approval of the "pretty committee" i.e, Massie, Alicia, Kristen and Dylan. Especially Massie's. In return the pretty committe shows their disdain for Claire through nasty pranks. But Claire finds a way into this dream world, even though she can't sleep at night, and always has a stomachache for fear that the whole thing will fall through. Even though the book is about middle-schoolers, the characters seem a lot older, so teens of advanced years will enjoy the book too.
