The only thing harder than getting in is staying in. That's the Clique for you! The ruler of the clique... and the rest of the school is Massie Block: the godess of all of the social and fashion scene at Octavian Country Day School. The other 3 Clique members are Dylan Marvil, Kristen Gregory, Alicia Rivera. Maybe they're not as popular, but they can all be just as mean.
In the book, Claire Lyons is the new girl in town, staying in Massie's guest house, from Florida. The first thing Massie has to despise about Claire are her Keds, and whole Gap attire. Claire makes friends with an oatmeal-obsesser, Layne Abeley, who just happens to be the dorky sister of Massie's crush.
Hey! Why is everyone suddenly turning their backs on MASSIE? How did Claire become so popular? Will Claire and Massie ever become friends? Will Layne and her oatmeal save the day?

The Clque book is about Massie Block and her clique which are known as the Pretty Committee. They are well known in their school and are totally popular. You could understand them as the most popular people in your school, but in the clique they are the most popular people in OCD. But when Claire Lyons steps foots into the Blocks guesthouse Massie's reputation is at stake. She immediatly understands that this ked shoe and gap jean wearing girl will only disgrace her Clique. Claire either way thought that she could never be part of this Clique since she couldn't even afford the types of clothes they wore. Claire was even unsure if she would be able to hold up the weight of their prada bags!! The first day of school was disaster for Claire. The drive to school was pleasant and met up with all of Massies friends. Through scandals Massie explained to her friends that they were not suppose to like Claire Lyons. That was when the "mean" fun and games started. When Claire gets a taste of Massies medicene she starts giving Massie a taste of her own medicene. Claire tricks Massie's friends to befriend her and leaves Massie looking like a mean old stuck of friend. Will Massie stand up for this? Is her clique going to be taken over by.....by...by....CLAIRE LYONS??

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).
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.
Claire a poor girl moves into her parent's friend's house. The family they move in with is rich and she gets told to hang out with their daughter who is the popular, mean girl. She goes through a lot of stuff, trying to fit in and last in a clique of rich girls.
Wow, they are so frickin spunky. those clique girls realy treat their enemies right. Especially the Clique leader, Massie Block. A new, middle class girl is moving into her high class rich home and she hates her just because of her status. other books just like this are the gossip girl series and the a-list series
The Clique series are my FAVORITE books, and I just found the official blog site. It is http://www.theprettycommittee.com If you heart the books you will double dog heart the blog! The Books are about life in middle school, and talks all about what it's like to be popular, or just be an EW. I idolize the characters especially Massie, she is the best! Check out the blog, it's like a mini clique book. I can't wait for the next posting!
This book was awesome I read in 2 hours because I could not put it down. It gives a total look inside a popular girls life. This book rocks!!!!!!!! At first it kind made me bored but, after a while I could not stop reading. So proves you cant judge a book by its cover.
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?
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.
