The Clique – Lisi Harrison
Posted January 27, 2008on:
The Clique is a story about five girls: Massie, the ruler of The Clique and the rest of the social scene; Dylan, Massie’s second in command who is always kissing up to Massie or drinking Atkin’s diet shakes; Alicia who’s sneaky and beautiful but seems so “sweet” to adults that they never suspect her; and Kristen who will insult you to tears so easily and has a secret that not even Massie knows; Claire who’s the new girl in GAP overalls that clearly does not fit in with the Clique but happens to be living in Massie’s guesthouse while her parents hunt for a job.
This book describes Claire’s struggles to be friends with Massie, the evilness of Massie and her clique, and how easily the friends will turn on each other. I found this book to be well written but not the best in the world. The characters are stuck-up, snotty, and rich which is something I can’t relate to. However, Claire is someone I can relate to because she’s trying to fit in with the “in” crowd, even though she’s not rich or dressed in the hottest trends. I would suggest this to my friends but only if they wanted a light read. I do plan on reading the rest of the series, if only to find out what happens to Claire and whether or not Massie is overthrown.
