Middle school girls are one of the cattiest species on Earth, and The Clique introduces you to the reigning queens of cattiness. Massie Block, Dylan Marvil, Alicia Rivera, and Kristen Gregory rule the 7th grade set at the prestigious Octavian Country Day School in Westchester County. The weekend before Massie (the Clique's leader) and the rest enter 7th grade, Massie discovers that her father's old friend and his family, the Lyons, is moving from Orlando to Westchester and they will be living in the Block's guesthouse until they find their own place. Coincidentally, the Lyons also have a daughter entering 7th grade. As soon as Massie sees Claire in her overalls and Keds Massie knows that Claire is someone to be ignored. However, Claire has no intention of being shoved unter the imported Oriental carpeting, and her attempts to be accepted by Massie's group, or at least to make herself someone at whom they don't look down their noses will have you rooting for her. One thing this series does not do is make me long for my own middle school days.
