She also can't come up with more than one plotline. If you take out the details, all the books are exactly the same: at first, Massie is perfect and popular. Then, someone comes in and threatens her position at the top. Oh no!
Thankfully, Massie's ass-kissing "friends" step in and save the day. Massie is back on top. Once you get to books , you start to think "haven't I read this before? In the part that I am at, Massie gets introduced to her crushes girlfriend.
In the beginning I thought I was like Claire, but what I just read where she sneaks into Massie's bedroom well I don't think we are very close anymore. The author, Lisi Harrison, did a great job explaining what the 5 girls look like, some examples are cherry red lips,and fiery red hair. Over all I would definitely give this book 5 stars.

From Alicia, who acts as though she suffers from depression because she has large breasts, and Massie, who hates her parents because she can't go to a spa day with her friends and has to stay in her multi-million dollar home.
It's not that I have a thing about rich girl books. I'm actually quite a fan of the Pretty Little Liars series, which also stars rich girls doing their rich girl thing. The difference be Why do the main characters have to be so unlikable?
The difference between Pretty Little Liars and the Clique is this - in Pretty Little Liars, there is a point other than reading about how awesome and popular and rich the main characters are, especially the richest and the prettiest one is. There is an outside conflict, the characters have flaws, and they don't go into spastics if they have to go a day without shopping.
The Clique is the opposite. You are reading nothing more than a story about five spoiled little girls who think their money gives them the right to act like bitches to everyone around them.
Oh, and if you don't have obscene amounts of money? You suck, your life sucks, and everyone you enjoy being around sucks. The main characters would apologize for how much your life sucks, but talking to you sucks, so they won't. And, as I've said before, these girls have no clue what it's like to have an actual problem. They go around like not being able to shop for a month is the worst thing that could possibly happen to them - news flash, that isn't a problem.
The problem is that you're a spoiled brat who's never been told no before. Please, someone, burn these books. Jan 10, michelle rated it it was ok Shelves: May 24, Louisa rated it did not like it. These books are an awful influence. I am in High School now, and I read all of them in the seventh grade religiously. I told people that I read them because I thought that they were funny, and that's actually what I told myself.
One of the main problems in this book is that there is so sense of right and wrong. The "clique" is glorified and the average girls who just be themselves are tortured.
Absolutely NO consequences, the clique just goes on untouched and is worshipped by everyone, including what seems like the author.
Middle school years are cliquey, and its all about what clique you're in. These books actually crushed my confidence because I knew that I couldn't act like or afford to dress like any of those girls. Whatever the case was, I continued to read these books and stuck post-it notes in pages where Massie Block said something cool or witty.
In the defining years of middle school, these books give the total wrong impression. I am SO happy to be in High School, by the way. Look at some of the things my middle school friend wrote recently.
Kayla is in the same class as Harry which is totally not good! And to make it worse, Mary is in the class too!
Harry's girlfriend! I mean what the hay! I mean he's crushing on her and she always talks about how he luvvvvvvsss her SO much. I have the perf name for Janie Kelly: Jiggly Janie.
I won't call her that to her face but stuh-ill! Total Jiggle monster! Ehmagawd, I kinda hope she is considered a loser next year! Asta la Vista Jiggly Janie! I mean, ew! I want to be popular next year, totally cah-yute! Jun 24, Swimstar rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Meet the Clique: Massie Block - with her glossy brunette bob and clear white smile, Massie is the uncontested ruler of the Clique and the rest of the social scene at Octavian Country Day School, an exclusive private school at Westchester, New York.
Dylan Marvil - Massie's second in command, Dylan divides her time between sucking up to Massie and sucking down Atkins shakes to try to get rid of the extra fifteen pounds that won't seem to leave her hips alone.
Alicia Rivera - as sneaky as she is be Meet the Clique: Alicia Rivera - as sneaky as she is beautiful, Alicia floats easily under the adult radar because she seems so 'sweet'. Would love to take Massie's throne one day.
Might just do it Kristen Gregory - Kristen has been dying to fit in ever since her parents went broke. She's smart, hard-working and will insult you to tears faster than you can say 'scholarship kid'. Claire Lyons - the new girl from Florida, Claire is staying in the guesthouse on Massie's family estate. She is definitely not Clique material, yet Massie's family insist that Claire is included in her gang.
Claire's future looks worse than a bad Prada knock-off, but with a little luck and a lot of scheming, she might just coming up smelling of Chanel No.
Summary taken from www. No One. I think the story stinks! Four little rich girls one not really rich, but lying about it so she can be in "The Clique" and one new girl who seems like she might actually be a great kid, but in the story is apparently willing to sell her soul, if she can get into "The Clique.
The only two characters in the book worth knowing might be Layne and her brother Chris - also very rich kids, but somehow seemed to manage to be real people. They are at least somehow aware that other people exist and have feelings. The book seems to say "The Clique" not only exists, but is OK! I gave it two stars because Ms. Harrison's technical writing skills are good, but as I said the story line sucks and she is, sadly, of no help to the youth who read her work.
May 21, Norina Zhang rated it it was ok. This book was completely pointless!
The characters never developed, and no real lessons were shown. The characters in the book did nothing interesting, it was just a bunch of girls talking. It was a simple, and fast read. The characters did nothing cool and the story just droned on and on about revenge that never even happened.
I cannot believe the author wrote a whole series about this. A theme of this book could be be kind. Massie most popular person had no real friends because she was so snarky. She was especially mean to Claire, a girl who temporarily lived in her guest house.
Claire was really kind to Massie at first, but then she turned mean. Claire she is new to the school made good friends but betrayed then them because she sucked up to The Clique. At the end, Claire turned nice again, and realized she was more happy being kind. The only good thing the author did was she portrayed a good picture of Middle School, and the types of people. Jun 08, Azra rated it it was ok. Let me get this straight everyone has a different perspective on this.
Mine was that this book was incredibly shallow.
The Name Brand Dropping is enough to go one mad. I find that terribly unrealistic seriously what 12 year old wears Chanel, Ralph Lauren, Gucci and ect. I don't think any of them. Each character I feel is more annoying then the last. I know i'm being harsh on this book but after all everyone's open to there thoughts and this is mine.
Massie Block is supposed to be fabulous, perfec Let me get this straight everyone has a different perspective on this. Massie Block is supposed to be fabulous, perfect, pretty and everyone wants to be her. The leader of The Pretty Committee.
Come on? Who is actually like that. Who's got a perfect life, with all these beautiful friends, all these admireres and then has just a fantabulous wardrobe. Oh yeah and how could you forget that her biggest problem is that she has a girl that's actually nice that's staying with her but opps can't hang with me unless those Converse and ugly bangs are gone.
Then there's Claire. She's worse then Massie! All she ever does is complain and whine and spends half the time wasting her time trying to be friends with Massie just because she's popular and pretty and everyone loves her.
In the end she's just as bad as Massie and will do anything just for everyone to like her and I just find her annoying. Kristen, Dylan and Alicia to me exist to be nothing more then Massie's little gang of wannabe friends.
The only character that I slightly liked was Layne. Layne because unlike the high society witches was actually different and didn't bother trying to be a Massie Clone. Overall this makes me wonder what's wrong with the world today? Or just with the writter this was not worth my time and I should have put it down by the first chapter instead of wasting my time.
Frankly I will not be reading any of the other books. Apr 12, Crystal 2 added it Recommends it for: I knew girls were mean, but I never thought that they would take it this far. This is why I can count on one hand how many female friends I have.
This book is a slight exaggeration of how far four best friends will go to hold their titles as the most envied girls in school. There are five main characters which are the best friends and one outcast. Massie Block, who is spoiled and out of control, Dylan Marvil, who is very insecure and covers it up by being uncontrollably rude, Alicia Rivera, wh I knew girls were mean, but I never thought that they would take it this far. From the moment that Claire moves in it is hell on earth.
The four best friends consistently taunt her and make her cry, and the craziest thing about this situation is the more they mess with her the more she wants to be their friends.
She might actually get her wish, but when she does she might also loose herself. With much popularity comes much responsibility Jan 16, Bailey rated it did not like it. These books should be banned from distribution. Looking back at the time I read some of these books, I now see that the characters in this books are so incredibly shallow and one-dimensional, showing no personal growth or empathy throughout the actions they take to bully and belittle less "popular" kids in their age group.
We all know or have known people like the main character, Massie Block, and the fact that such a narcisist has such a spotlight shone on her in these books does nothing but pr These books should be banned from distribution. We all know or have known people like the main character, Massie Block, and the fact that such a narcisist has such a spotlight shone on her in these books does nothing but promote the idea that some people are truly better than others, which I'm sure is EXACTLY the lesson kids and adults!
We all know Massie and her friends are going to grow up to become one of two things; anorexic trophy wives, or fat, bitter cat ladies.
The one hope in these books was introduced as a victim of Massie and her friends, named Claire. Unfortunately the path Harrison could've taken with these books to illustrate strength and perseverance by having Claire deal with her bullies and become something of a role model for kids, didn't happen as far as I know.
Instead, Claire befriends the girls, continues to take their crap, and stands by while they continue doling it out to others in their pursuits of inconsequential goals such as boys or special lunch rooms. Woo hoo. Feb 10, Hannah rated it it was amazing. The minute I picked up this book I couldn't put it down.
I finished it in a matter of days and have been reading the series ever since. It keeps you hooked and for me it never got boring. Lisi Harrison is an amazing author and she's even helped Mtv! This book taught me that no the what obstacles come your way in life, if you work around them and fight through them, in the end you'll get what you want. One of The minute I picked up this book I couldn't put it down.
One of the main characters Claire moves to a new town called Westchester all the way from Florida and is faced with "the pretty committee. All Claire wants is to fit in but Massie the leader of the pretty committee. The other girls don't approve of her but Massie knows Claire fits in. That's what it taught me and it's an amazing book! So next time you need a book to read pick up the clique series by Lisi Harrison! Nov 13, Alaina rated it really liked it Recommends it for: It's an all girls school, where everyone wears nothing but designer clothing and fashion seems to speak more than what's "on the inside".
All the girls in "The Clique" are incredibly rich and can afford anything they want, whenever they want. But the toughest thing about "The Clique", is how hard it is to get in, and how easy it is Massie Block, Alicia Rivera, Dylan Marvil, and Kristen Gregory are best friends forever and are the super popular clique at their school, Octavian Country Day School. But the toughest thing about "The Clique", is how hard it is to get in, and how easy it is to be out.
The Block's friends, the Lyons, are invited to stay in their guest house, when the Lyons move up from Florida. Massie is told it's because they used to be great friends and the Lyons need a place to stay while they look for a new house. The Lyon's daughter Claire and Massie seemed to be forced onto each other to be friends. Massie really doesn't like Claire, saying that she has no sense of fashion, and is kind of a dork. Claire thinks Massie is a total snob, and flaunts her money and popularity whenever possible.
When "The Clique" begins to gang up on Claire at school, what will she do? Will she fight back, or become sly and cunning just like them, and find a spot for herself in "The Clique"?
