This book is a great story about a "clique" or a group of friends. Massie, the leader of the clique's, dad invites friends of his come to stay in their guest house until they can purchase a house of their own. They come along with their daughter Claire. She tries to become friends with Massie, but Massie judges her right away and decides that they can never be friends. However, Claire still hangs out with Massie and her friends Kristen, Alicia, and Dylan who all act as if they hate Claire just to please Massie. Claire realizes this and decides to simply move on. But its not easy to ignore Massie Block...
This is a great story and I give it 4 out of 5 stars. It is a book for girls in 5th-8th grade who love books that contain drama, back stabbing, or anything else that happens in the world of teenage girls. It was a story that I highly enjoyed because it seemed so real and I was able to imagine every event as if it was happening right before my eyes. That is why I loved the clique.
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.
Mean, Gorgeous, and Rich...A day in the life of the perfect Massie Block

The Clique Series is as luring as a limited edition Louis Vuitton purse. Massie Block and her clique are the popularist, richest, most drop-dead amazing girls at their all-girl school. I REALLY reccommend you read this series by Lisi Harrison. Also, I reccommend that if you like this series, you should also read The A-List series by Joey Dean and The Gossip Girl series by Cecily von Ziegesar.
I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!!!!! It was very exciting. I finished it in less than three hours. I wouldn't put it down! I loved Massie Block. She's so evil, which makes her interesting to read. And I loved the five way calling attack. It reminded me of Mean Girls, which is, like, my favorite movie! I really can't find anything bad in this book. This book was interesting, clever, and The Clique is very sly. I recommend this book most definitely!!
The perfect novels for middle-graders, these books are full of brand names and pop culture refrences. It even has an occasional positive message about friendship. The girls fight alot, but are able to solve problems well (most of the time) on their own
I personnaly love these books. They don't have big words or difficult plots, making them perfect for reluctent readers (not me, but I still love them).
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.
I totally heart these books! I love the designer clothes and how real the characters seem. I feel like I know the characters and that I'm right there in Massie's guesthouse when Claire is humiliated--yet again. Lisi Harrison is a fab author! I recommend the Clique books to any teenage girl.
Massie Block has everything; popularity, a clique, good looks, the boys and unfortunately, Claire Lyons.
Massie's dad's friend's family is moving into their guest house. That means that Massie is forced to hang out with their daughter, Claire. Claire is a real dork; she wears Keds and 2 year old Gap Overalls.
Massie rounds up the Clique, and they start getting ugly. Massie and her Clique do the nastiest and worst things to innocent Claire.
Can Claire get revenge on them, and possibly get into the coolest Clique of all times? Read this book to find out!
I loved this book! Once I picked it up, I couldn't stop reading it! I would recomment this book to girls ages 11-14.
This book is about Claire Lyons who is moving into Massie's house. At school Massie is queen and her other three friends are too. Claire tries to be friends with this bunch.... bad idea. Read this book to find out what happens!
