The book the Clique is a very good book. It is about a spolied rich little bratty 7th grader named Massie. She is basically Queen Bee of the Seventh Grade. One of her father's old friends is having trouble finding a new place to live so Massie's father decides to let him stay in their mansions pool house. The couple now staying in Massies house has a daughter also in the seventh grade named Claire. Massie immediately decides sher hates Claire because she is of lower class to Massie. So Massie decides to plot to make Claire's life at home and at school a living hell. While Claire secretely plots to be accepted into Massies extra exclusive clique. This book is a great read for anyone who likes teenage girl drama.
The first time I read "The Clique" I was hooked. It was the best book I'd read in a long time.
The book is about a group of rich, pretty girls who are the most popular clique in their school. And even though these girls are very mean to everyone else, underneath the book, there is truth.
They treat others like many other seventh grade girls treat each other. It raises important issues like friendship, self-esteem, etc.
The Cilque has a pretty simple storyline. A group of girls at the top of the social chain, and their lives. But there are many unexpected twists and turns along the way.
I didn't like this book as a real book that I would read, but it was fun to waste time with every once in a while. But while the story was amusing, I didn't like how the story seemed to try to portray how "hard" the lives were of these A-List girls. They were spoiled and had no real troubles. At times the book would even make me mad because I would think "How can they be so shallow!" or "Don't they have any real problems???"
I don't think (or at least I hope) there are no girls like this in the real world, because that would just be pitiful. I hope anybody so rich at least has some compassion and better things to do than whine about how you only have 10 Coach bags. But as a book, this was a funny, light read. I recommend it to pass the time, but not as a real serious book that you plan to read for some "quality literature" if you know what i mean! :-)
Can I just slap every single character in the face? Including the editor?

OK first I would like to address some grammatical errors, such as forgetting periods at the end of a sentence and using the wrong verb tenses in one or two cases.
Second, I just want to slap Massie's little face off. She is such a snobby, stuck-up b*tch! And all the other girls (who would have been alright) just follow Massie around like little DOGS just doing whatever she says.....if Massie says it's cool, it's cool, and if Massie says it's not cool, it's soooooooo out. Like Claire, who's out faster than you can say "Not a G.L.U."
Claire was the best character, but I think she should have gotten back at Massie via public humiliation. Not JUST the sly, sneaky stuff, but maybe pour red paint on HER white jeans. And being nice to Massie in the end? Bull c r a p.
this was a pretty shallow book. every one at OCD is all obsessed with how they look and they care too much about being skinny and being rich and what clothes they wear twice in the same year. it's really ridiculous how prissy they all are. they act like snobs who are too good for everyone else. and when Clair trys to fit in, Massie totally just dismisses her. if you were trying to move into Westchester, you would probably try to fit in like Clair did. and you would get the exact treatement she did.
the clique follow a group of seventh grade a listers. They all wear designer clothes and love gossip. A new girl Claire tries very hard to get into this tight knit group. Claire is not snobby rich or a dirty fighter, so how will she wiggle her way in. and in the process will she lose who she really is. a funny look into teenage culture today but not a very deep book. is very good for a few hours of entertainment and not much more
Popular and rich Massie is devastated when she learns that not only is
her father's significantly less wealthy friend planning on staying in
their guest house, but he also has a daughter Massie's age whom Massie
is expected to befriend. When Claire appears wearing Keds and
non-designer clothes, Massie is determined to shun Claire at every
opportunity. Enlisting the help of her clique, Massie proceeds to
mercilessly mock and torture Claire. Claire might be a nice girl, but
she isn't about to go down without a fight. Mean girl cattiness ensues.
The book is straightforward and serviceable, but neither the plot
nor the characters stand out in any way. The characters are all
two-dimensional and resemble caricatures more than fully-formed
characters. Still, they are familiar caricatures who most girls probably
have some experience knowing or being, so it is easy to relate to the
actions and feelings the characters experience. Though The Clique is now
a lengthy series, the first book can easily be read as a stand-alone.
Not bad, but not memorable.
OMG I HEART THIS BOOK. This book/ series are the bomb it is a book about a group of mean girls at the top of their all girl school OCD. when the new girl Claire comes they will do almost anything to put her down. I can nhot tell u how much i love this book. it is writen so well just like u would talk Mrs. Harrison i wove u
The Clique is the story of rich, prissy middle schoolers.
I opened the book excited, hoping to find a close counter part to the awesome Gossip Girl series. I soon relized I was severly mistaken. I could barely get through the first chapter of this book.
First of all the characters are about 12 years old and they act like their 20. Everyone was ungodly spoiled. All anyone did was whine about not having the latest $20,000 dollar watch or something equally outrageous.
If you want to read about a bunch of rich spoiled brats whining about what they dont have then check this out, but remember I warned you.
If you have not read the clique, then you're crazy. Although it is about spoiled girls from Westchester, even though Westchester is the best, it has detailed plots and cliffhangers at the end of almost every chapter. This book is a must read, so read it.
