The Ashleys (Ashleys Series #1)

( 86 )

Overview

The Ashleys rule Miss Gamble's Preparatory School for Girls. They are gorgeous, rich, impeccably fashion forward, and, yes, all named Ashley. Lauren Page has gone to the same school with them her whole life, and the Ashleys, if forced to remember, might recall only a faint memory of shoving mud in the poor girl's mouth in kindergarten.

But Lauren Page is no longer the mud-eating loser she once was. And though she has completely changed her exterior from bargain-basement ...

Overview

The Ashleys rule Miss Gamble's Preparatory School for Girls. They are gorgeous, rich, impeccably fashion forward, and, yes, all named Ashley. Lauren Page has gone to the same school with them her whole life, and the Ashleys, if forced to remember, might recall only a faint memory of shoving mud in the poor girl's mouth in kindergarten.

But Lauren Page is no longer the mud-eating loser she once was. And though she has completely changed her exterior from bargain-basement cast-offs to off-the-runway couture (props, of course, to her new personal shopper) she is still the same person on the inside. And that person has had enough of the current regime.

Look out, Ashleys. There's a new name in school.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

A line from the movie Heathers is one of two epigraphs to this series debut (the other is Groucho Marx's quip about refusing to join any club that would have him as a member); although de la Cruz's (the Au Pairs series) writing lacks the wit of these sources, it has the same snarky baby-barricuda-meets-credit-card appeal of another possible inspiration, Lisi Harrison's Clique books. Here, a trio of privileged, pretty and petty girls, all named Ashley, rule the seventh grade at Miss Gamble's exclusive private school in San Francisco. Smart Lauren Page has been a target of their bullying since kindergarten, but now that her dad has struck it rich, she has scored a major makeover and launched a mission: "First she was going to join the Ashleys. And then she was going to destroy them." The author lards her writing with copious references to designers, restaurants and imagined habits of the mega-rich (Lauren flies the Ashleys to L.A. on a private plane for a day of shopping). The Ashleys' contempt for Lauren doesn't diminish despite her blandishments; they are cruel to her and even to one another. Disappointingly, Lauren would rather be liked by the Ashleys than wreak revenge, and she has no scheme anyway. She's nowhere mean enough to be a match for the queen bee, who hatches all the best plots even though everyone hates her; but she's not nice enough to make readers root for her, either. Ages 9-13. (Jan.)

Children's Literature - Kendall Barnes
Three wildly popular twelve-year-old girls attend Miss Gamble's Preparatory School for Girls: Ashley, Ashley, and Ashley. The beautiful and blonde Ashley Spencer, the leader of "The Ashleys," has earned the admiration of everyone in the seventh grade. Ashley Li, also known as Lili, obsesses over fashion, organization, and impressing Ashley Spencer. Ashley Alioto, or A.A., is mellow, boy-crazy, and has a boyfriend that she has never actually met. Despite their differences, however, they all have a few things in common: they are all gorgeous, extremely rich, and impeccably fashionable. Lauren Page, an outcast who has attended the same private school her whole life, dreams of being a part of "The Ashleys." Now that she has an abundance of money to spend on new designer clothes and a makeover, thanks to her dad's "YourTV.com" business, Lauren finally believes she will have her chance. She has just one thing on her mind: to join and then destroy "The Ashleys." Unfortunately, winning the girls' acceptance turns out to be harder than Lauren anticipated. Melissa De La Cruz's book is fun, funny, and fantastic. She writes about the usual traumas of being a teen and illustrates that even though Lauren changes on the outside, she remains the same on the inside. De La Cruz asks the question, "Is it better to be a part of the group or not?" Reviewer: Kendall Barnes

THE NOT-SO-NEW GIRL

Lauren page smoothed down the folds of her short plaid skirt and crossed her legs so that she could admire the shiny new black-and-white Chanel spectator oxfords on her feet a little better. They looked so cute with her thick cashmere socks scrunched down just above the ankle, she thought. She'd been wearing the same green plaid uniform to Miss Gamble's all her life, but she was in the upper form now — seventh grade — which meant saying good-bye to her boring old Buster Browns and hello to the first boy-girl dance with the hotties from Gregory Hall, which was only three weeks away. And as far as she was concerned, upper form meant a whole new Lauren.

She leaned back on the plush, baby-soft leather seat in her dad's sparkling new Bentley Continental and pressed a button that flipped a mirror on the console in front of her.

Sometimes she couldn't believe it herself. The girl who smiled back from the mirror looked nothing like the old Lauren. This one had pin-straight chestnut brown hair that fell softly on her shoulders and shone with reddish and caramel gold highlights, a killer Mystic spray tan, and cheekbones so sharp they could cut ice. Lauren felt a little like those young starlets who lost so much weight and started looking so hot that people whispered they'd had major plastic surgery. Lauren turned her head sideways to try and get a good look at her profile. Her nose certainly looked different now that her baby fat had melted away.

"Nervous?" a voice asked from the driver's seat.

Lauren stopped preening and raised a carefully plucked-by-Anastasia eyebrow at the speaker via the rearview mirror. "Should I be?" she asked Dex, her father's seventeen-year-old intern and personal pet project who, when he wasn't dreaming up online schemes for her father as part of his "regular" job, was part brother, part bodyguard, and full-time chauffeur.

"Maybe, because you're still ugly." Dex laughed.

"Takes one to know one," Lauren said, sticking her tongue out at him and feeling suddenly anxious. What if Dex was right? She checked the mirror again. A smoldering, gray-eyed brunette beauty glared back at her. No, there was no way. He was just being a smart-ass as usual.

"You shouldn't care so much what people think. Seriously, it's not attractive," he said, as he took a sharp turn down a curve and Lauren had to clutch at the hand rest to keep from sliding down the length of the backseat.

"Um, did Dr. Phil die or something? Because 'Dr. Dex' has a slightly stupid ring to it," Lauren retorted. Easy for him to say, she thought. Dex had always been popular and was criminally good-looking, even after he shaved off his pretty-boy curls to sport a Justin Timberlake buzz cut. He was smart, too — graduating early from prep school, where he had been captain of the lacrosse, crew, and soccer teams, and taking the year off before enrolling in Stanford's accelerated computer program. Whereas Lauren had been going to Miss Gamble's all her life, and no one ever talked to her unless it was to ask for answers to the social studies quiz.

But all that was going to change this year.

She looked out the dark-tinted car window at the familiar roller-coaster streets of San Francisco's Pacific Heights. The exclusive neighborhood's palatial Victorian mansions didn't look intimidating anymore; some of them looked small, even downright dinky.

Life had taken a turn for the ultra-luxe ever since YourTV.com went public last year. The video-sharing website was her father's brainchild, a deceptively simple idea that allowed anyone on the planet to be a star in the cyberuniverse. The site exploded suddenly and without warning, catapulting the family from their shoebox-size Mission District one-bedroom walk-up to a grand estate of their own in the Marina, with an unparalleled view of the bay and their own helipad on the roof.

Dad was the newly crowned king of Silicon Valley and had made the covers of Fortune and Forbes, and Mom had gone from protesting animal testing on the sidewalk to chairing benefit dinners for African orphans. And Lauren, who had made do with thrift-store castoffs and clearance-bin remnants all her life, suddenly found herself at designer boutiques on Maiden Lane with a personal shopper hanging on her every word.

Last year she was a financial-aid pity case, fretting over whether anyone at school would notice that her blue cashmere sweater had been bought secondhand at the school's charity shop. This year her sweater was a nine-hundred-dollar one with a fancy Italian label. Lauren had been worried about getting a stain on it, until her dad — who used to pay the grocery bill with change from the kitchen jar whenever his graduate teaching assistant stipend ran out — had told her that she wouldn't have to worry about anything ever again. At least not where pricey designer clothes were concerned. Well, then. Bring on the twelve-ply Mongolian cashmere.

Lauren grabbed a tall, frosty Voss water bottle from the mini-fridge hidden in the side compartment to calm her nerves.

Because Dex was right. She was a little nervous. A head-to-toe Emma Roberts-like makeover was one thing, but there were still the Ashleys to contend with. Lauren could see them now, giving her the daily head-to-toe fashion evaluation and shaking their heads in mock disgust. Even if there was a school uniform and all students were supposed to look the same to eliminate "status consciousness," the Ashleys always looked like they stepped out of a J. Crew catalog, while Lauren looked like she'd stumbled out of an old Full House episode. They never let her forget it either.

Lauren clenched her jaw. What if they saw through her six-hundred-dollar haircut and carefully accessorized uniform and decided she was just the same old dork she had always been?

The old Lauren was a meek, frizzy-haired girl who sat in the back, whom no one ever paid attention to until her name was called at the end of every year during Prize Day, when the whole school gathered in the main hall, all the girls wearing ivy-covered garlands in their hair while the headmistress gave out the awards for the top student in every subject. She would stand for what seemed like an excruciatingly long time while Miss Burton read out the list of awards she'd received, in every subject except gym — mercifully, she escaped that one mortification.

What if they looked at her and saw the same Lauren from last year?

She would not allow that to happen. She dug her Black Satin manicure into the Bentley's thick upholstery, leaving ugly grooves in the Italian leather. Uh-oh. That was going to cost a fortune to fix. Then she remembered with relief that a fortune was exactly what she had right now. And like Angelina Jolie, she was going to use her money to do something good for a change.

First she was going to join the Ashleys. And then she was going to destroy them. She wanted to change the world one day, and she was going to start by making the seventh grade a better place to be.

The car pulled up to the main gates, where a slew of expensive European cars were lined up, depositing their precocious charges on the sidewalk — the rosy-cheeked daughters of the most elite families in the Bay Area. Several girls who lived down the street in the multimillion-dollar townhouses Lauren had just passed were casually walking up the hill, Marc by Marc Jacobs messenger bags slung across their chests.

Lauren spied the Ashleys in their usual before-school hangout by the stone bench in front of the playground, the three of them holding matching venti decaf soy lattes and looking beyond bored. They looked so sweet and innocent — not at all like the soul-destroying creatures they really were. She inhaled and said a little prayer to whatever gods watched over made-over twelve-year-olds with secret intentions.

Today was the first day of the rest of her new life.

    I highly recommend this site.

    Book title and author: The Ashley's, Melissa de la Cruz
    Title of review: The funny book.
    Number of stars (1 to 5): 4 1/2 stars

    Introduction:
    The Ashley's pretty much own the school. They are rich, fashionable and they are all named Ashley. There is a girl named Lauren Paige that goes to the same school. They don't remember anything about her, except pushing her in the mud on the playground in kindergarten. But now she is the fashionable girl too. The Ashley's finally noticed her. Now she's the cool girl in school

    Description and summary of main points:
    Melissa de la Cruz is the author of the novel Cat's Meow and the co-author of How to Become Famous in Two Weeks or Less. Her work has been translated into several languages. She writes regularly for Marie Claire, Gotham, Hamptons, and Lifetime magazines and has contributed to the New York Times, Glamour, Allure, and McSweeney's. She recently moved from New York City and now lives in Los Angeles with her husband. She has never dared use her cell phone on the Hampton Jitney. This is not her dog.

    Evaluation
    Plot: The Ashley's invite Lauren to hang out with them. While Lauren is hanging with them, she is trying to figure out a way for this guy to like her.
    Characters: Ashley, Ashley, Ashley and Lauren.
    Theme: A funny and interesting story.
    Setting: It takes place in the year 2005.

    Conclusion
    They are at the dance, and Ashley eats a peanut. But she's allergic to them. She passes out on the floor. The principle came over and had to take her pants off, just to put her epee pen in her leg. It was so embarrassing, but Lauren didn't care because she was with a guy.

    Your final review
    I loved the book. I was in the sixth grade and it was really good. I would definitely keep reading the series.

    Amazing- A Must Have!

    The Ashley's is an amazing book about a girl who tries to make friends with the Ashley's. It is a fabulous book that describes the things these girls make each other do, and sometimes it doesn't end out well. It is a must have for this summer, and it should definitely be on everyone's bookshelf!! I can't wait to read the next one!

    TERRIBLE!IT SUCKED!

    This book was so terrible!It ripped off Mean Girls and it was just so cheap,it nauseated me!Ok,the story wasn't the worst thing ever,but I believe it is not good for anybody to read.It sends off sexist stereotypes and encourages girls to fit into those.The story also gives off the messages that girls should do anything to get guys,to be thin and pretty, and to gain social popularity.I mean,where is the morals?The kindness?All the girls in the story are vicious,scathing monsters,and it pisses me off to think that there are actually people like that out there.It's as if the author wants girls to be nasty,popular Queen Bees.

    Amazing read

    I loved that the ashley's. Melissa De La cruz is a amazing writer. I am sad that there's only four books but they are so good so it makes up for that. I don't understand how people can even compare the Ashley's to the Clique series. I read the first three books of the clique and couldn't read anymore. but the ashley's are amazing and I could read a million more books about the ashely's and luaran.

    The Ashleys; I loved it.

    I loved the book, The Ashleys. It is a story about a clique called The Ashleys and a girl named Lauren. Lauren has been taunted by the Ashleys practically her whole life. She basically wants revenge on them. Lauren's dad launched a big company over the summer after Lauren's 6th grade year. She comes back to school looking amazing with a very large goal. She wants to become friends with the Ashleys. She knows that it will be a hard task, but thats what she has to do in order to break them down. She wants to learn all of their secrets and flaws to eventuallly announce to the school. This book is all about the challenges she goes through to become friends with them. Ashley isnt very willing to let Lauren into the group. Lili likes Lauren way more than Ashley does. A.A. sort of just goes with the flow. Lauren has to pamper them, do exactly what they want, and act like the perfect stuck up rich girl for them to even pretend to be pleased with her. You should read this book if you enjoy girly books with lots of drama.

    A friend recommended me this book. I didn't think i would like it BUT i love it! I couldn't put it down and it was just fun to read! It shows how much kids want to fit in and will change everything to be the IT girl even at a young age!

    Too Much Like The Clique

    The Ashleys is good book, I could not put it down, but it was soooooooo much like the Clique! I can point out a lot of similarities! Try seeing if you could borrow this book from the library first.

    Familiar?

    Too much like the Clique series. It was good at times, but I didn't really like it.

    Too Much Like The Clique

    I thought that although this book was good, it was a bit too much like the Clique books by Lisi Harrison. Ashley Spencer remindedd me a lot of Massie Block, they're even allergic to the same thing-nuts! If you want to read a book about rich girls, try the Clique.

    A must read!!!!!!

    At first i thought reading this book would be a bad idea because i read some of the reviews that said it was not a good book. When my friend told me to read it i did and it was great. I couldn't put it down. It reminds me of the clique series.
