Overview

Massie Block: With her glossy brunette bob and laser-whitened smile, Massie is the uncontested ruler of The Clique and the rest of the social scene at Octavian Country Day School, an exclusive private girls' school in Westchester County, New York. Massie knows you'd give anything to be just like her.

Dylan Marvil: Massie's second in command who divides her time between sucking up to Massie and sucking down Atkins Diet shakes.

Alicia Rivera: As sneaky as she is beautiful, Alicia floats easily under adult radar because she seems so "sweet." Would love to take Massie's throne one day. Just might.

Kristen Gregory: She's smart, hardworking, and will insult you to tears faster than you can say "my haircut isn't ugly!"

Enter Claire Lyons, the new girls from Florida in Keds and two-year-old Gap overalls, who is clearly not Clique material. Unfortunately for her, Claire's family is staying in the guesthouse on Massie's family's huge estate while they look for a new home. Claire's future looks worse than a bad Prada knockoff. But with a little luck and a lot of scheming, Claire might just come up smelling like Chanel No. 19. . . .

The Clique . . . the only thing harder than getting in is staying in.

Wealthy Massie is determined to exclude middle class Claire, the daughter of her father's old friend, from her seventh-grade clique at a very exclusive private school in Westchester, New York, but after Massie steals her only friend, Claire strikes back.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Middle schoolers who have participated in the "popularity game" may be drawn to this series opener by a first-time author, which takes cliquish, snobbish behavior to Hollywood extremes. Massie Block, whom readers will love to hate, is rich, conniving and the uncontested leader of the "A-list" group of seventh graders at an exclusive private girls' school in New York's affluent Westchester County. When Mr. Block's unemployed college friend moves his family into the Blocks' guest house, Mrs. Block pushes Massie to befriend their daughter, Claire, who is the same age but dresses "like one of the cast members from Barney and Friends"; Massie predictably rebels. She wastes no opportunity to let Claire know there is no room for her in the in-crowd; Claire, however, decides to fight back. What follows is a rigorous battle of wills between the girls involving backbiting, scheming and carrying out nasty pranks. With an arsenal stocked with designer clothing and cosmetics, fancy cell phones and "mani/pedi" appointments, Massie and her friends publicly humiliate Claire time after time, and Claire, slowly but surely, figures out a way to turn Massie's friends against her. Readers who are initially amused may find that the successive acts of one-upmanship result in a one-note read-while Massie and Claire experience a moment or two of camaraderie, they stay pretty superficial, unchanged by their victories and defeats. Ages 12-up. (May) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Claire is not like the other 7th grade girls at the Octavian Country Day School, an exclusive private school she has just started attending as a result of her family's move from Florida to Westchester County, New York. She wears overalls from the Gap that are a few years old and her new Keds that she thought were great, are beyond horrendous in the eyes of the clique, a group of four conniving, judgmental girls. The leader of this group is Massie, whose family has opened their guesthouse to Claire and her family (the dads were college buddies) while they look for a new home. The two girls are thrown together with disastrous results. Few readers will actually relate to the lifestyles Claire's classmates lead: drivers to take them to and from school, multiple credit cards for superfluous purchases, cell phones, the mansions with pools and guesthouses, etc. Characters are thinly portrayed; one development in the plot attempts to expose each member of the clique weaknesses, but fails to effectively do so. The empty plot spins its wheels and goes nowhere, with little conflict resolution at the end. It's true that 7th graders, especially girls, can be cruel to each other, but directing them to read this book about the "have's" and the "have nots" is just a waste of time. 2004, 17th Street Productions/An Alloy Company, Ages 12 up.

VOYA
The Clique was a sweet representation of life as a preteen. It was a little corny and goofy sometimes, but that only added to the genuine feel of the book and the characters. The book is definitely not one to expand your mind, but it serves as a nice quick read. The writing style was smooth and easy to understand, which makes it a bit more appropriate for a younger audience.

KLIATT
Massie Block has the perfect life: she has three best friends, dubbed "The Clique," who worship her; the latest fall fashions; and a gorgeous dog named Bean to dote upon. The student body of Octavian Country Day School looks to her in both fear and awe as a trendsetter. Then Claire and her family move into the guesthouse on the Block family property and this throws Massie's life into upheaval. Claire is completely out of her element in Westchester County, New York, where no one appreciates her white Gap jeans, navy blue Keds, and fondness for gummy candy. She tries desperately to make friends with Massie, who wants nothing to do with her and turns The Clique against her. However, Massie underestimates the feisty Claire as an adversary, and the two girls are soon locked in a contest of wills. The first book in a new series, this novel is a unique take on the popular "chick lit" genre for teens. One particularly amusing feature of the story is Massie's "State of the Union," her nightly report of what is "in" and "out" in her world. Despite the placement of numerous brand names on almost every page, Harrison creates characters that readers will want to get to know further. Recommended for younger teen girls who are not yet old enough to enjoy the Gossip Girl series. KLIATT Codes: J—Recommended for junior high school students. 2004, Little Brown, 17th Street Productions, 220p., Ages 12 to 15.

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-Claire Lyons moves with her parents from Florida to wealthy Westchester County, NY. Until they can get settled, the family stays in the guest house of Mr. Lyons's college buddy, who happens to have a daughter who is also in seventh grade. Expected to welcome her, Massie instead chooses to make Claire's life miserable for no other reason than she's the new girl. Massie enlists her clique of friends at Octavian Country Day School, all part of the beautiful and popular crowd, to help with the harassment, which ranges from catty comments on Claire's clothes to spilling red paint on her white jeans in a conspicuous spot. Tired of it all, Claire tries to fight back, but then the abuse worsens. The book has trendy references kids will love, including Starbucks in the school, designer clothes, and PalmPilots for list making. However, this trendiness doesn't make up for the shallowness of the characters or the one-dimensional plot. Nor is the cruelty of the clique redeemed with any sort of a satisfying ending. The conclusion leaves one with the feeling that a sequel is in the works. Amy Goldman Koss's The Girls (Dial, 2000) shows the same cruelty of girls with a more realistic story and resolution.-Diana Pierce, Running Brushy Middle School, Cedar Park, TX Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Chapter One

THE BEOCK ESTATE THE KITCHEN 10:49 P.M. August 31st

"Massie, wipe that confused look off your face," Massie's mom, Kendra, said. "It's really very simple-you're not going."

Massie Block flicked the tiny bell that dangled from her gold charm bracelet over and over again. The hollow pings were the only sounds she could make, unless of course she wanted to be accused of "interrupting" by her annoyingly polite mother, which she didn't. She just wanted to win the argument they were having.

"But I have plans and it would be rude if I broke them," Massie said. "Right? I mean, haven't you always told me to 'honor my engagements'?" She made air quotes just to remind her mother that the rule was hers in the first place.

Massie looked to her father, William, for backup, but he just sipped his tea and continued reading the latest copy of Westchester magazine.

"I told you about this weeks ago," Kendra said. She spoke very slowly and enunciated every word, in much the same way she talked to Inez, their live-in housekeeper. "Your father has been good friends with Mr. Lyons since college. They are moving to Westchester all the way from Florida so that Mr. Lyons can work for him. And while they are looking for a home of their own, they will be living in our guesthouse. And as our daughter it is important that you're here to greet them when they arrive."

"Why?" Massie narrowed her eyes. "They're Dad's freeloading friends, not mine."

Kendra shot her husband a desperate look across the table. William stayed focused on the magazine.

"Well, they'll be your friends soon enough." Kendra said. "Claire is starting the seventh grade on Tuesday too, so you should have plenty to talk about."

"What? Like math?" Massie snapped.

"You can always invite her to join in on your plans," Kendra suggested. "Then you won't miss out on anything."

"Impossible." Massie shook her head. "We've had these appointments for weeks. We can't just call up the spa and add another person at the last minute." Massie looked away. "Not that we'd want to," she said under her breath.

"Then it's settled," Kendra said. "Inez will have brunch on the dining room table tomorrow at 1:15 RM. Don't be late."

Massie turned and stomped out of the kitchen. Her black pug, Bean, scurried across the floor, trying to keep up without getting too close to Massie's deadly three-inch mules. When they got to the staircase, Massie leaned down and scooped up the puppy with one hand.

Normally she took her heels off before climbing the steps because of the "delicate high-gloss finish on the wood." But considering the circumstances, she chose to leave them on. Every floor-scuffing step would pay her mother back for destroying the Labor Day plans she had with her three best friends.

When she got to the second floor, Massie kicked off her shoes and padded across the plush carpet straight into her bedroom. And slammed the door behind her.

"Don't slam!" came Kendra's voice over the intercom. Massie looked at the white speaker by the bed and rolled her eyes.

Everything in her room was white: the leather chaise by the bay window, the sheepskin rug, the painted brick walls, the dozen fresh tulips, and her flat-screen Mac. Her friends called it the iPad. She'd designed it that way after she stayed in the presidential suite at the Mondrian in Los Angeles. The only color in the enormous hotel room had come from the decorative green apple in the middle of the white marble coffee table. She loved how crisp and orderly everything looked.

But just the other day she'd read in a British gossip magazine that purple was the official color of royalty, which explained the brand new mauve Calvin sheets on her bed. She'd been hoping to buy more in the "queen's color" during her Labor Day shopping spree, but that was no longer an option.

Massie lifted her dog in the air so their eyes could meet. "Bean, tell me this isn't happening."

Bean blinked.

"Missing out on tomorrow could stunt my social growth for the rest of the year," Massie said.

Bean licked Massie's thin wrist. She loved the taste of Chanel No. 19.

"Everyone will have a fresh batch of inside jokes I won't even get. I'll have to smile like a good sport while everyone laughs and says, 'Oh, you just had to be there."' Massie shook her head vigorously as if her mind was an Etch A Sketch that could erase thoughts she didn't like.

"And you know Dylan will buy the YSL lip markers I put a 'yes' sticker on in Lucky," she said. "And you wanna know why this is happening?" Massie continued. She didn't wait for Bean's reaction. "So I can meet some girl from Orlando who's going to be living here for a year. I mean, what's the urgency? She's not going anywhere." Massie paused and searched her brain for a reasonable explanation. "Unless of course she has a life-threatening illness."

Bean yelped.

"And if she does ..." Massie let out a heavy sigh. "Why should I get attached?"

Massie ripped up the itinerary she made for her friends that detailed everything she had planned for their day of beauty. She stood above her trash can and let the scraps of paper fall through her fingers like snowflakes. She could see that words like spray tan, eyebrow wax, aroma (therapy had been torn away), and Bergdorf's were still intact.

Massie collapsed on her bed and stretched her arm toward her night table. She grabbed her cell and hit "1" on her speed dial. The girl on the other end picked up after the first ring.

"Heyyy," Alicia said

"Hold on, I'll get Dylan," Massie said.

"'Kay."

Massie punched in "2" and pressed Send.

"Dyl?"

"Yeah."

"Hold on, I'll get Kristen."

Massie pressed "3."

"Hey, Mass," Kristen said.

"Hey, Alicia and Dylan are here too," Massie said.

"What's up?" Kristen asked. She sounded nervous, like she was about to get blamed for something she didn't do.

"I can't go with you guys tomorrow," Massie blurted.

"Yeah, right." Dylan snorted.

"No, I'm serious. You're not going to believe this, but I have to-" Massie paused and reconsidered her next words. "I have the flu." Which came out sounding like, "I hab da flu."

"Gawd, you sound awful," Kristen said.

"Yeah, maybe we shouldn't go," Dylan offered. "We can come over and take care of you instead."

"What? Not go?" Alicia snapped. "I mean, Massie, what exactly is wrong with you? Maybe we can help."

"Feber. Headache. Stuffed up doze, you doh, duh usual." Massie added a sniff and an "uuugggghhh" for effect.

"Dylan's right. We'll bail," Kristen said. "It won't be the same without you. Who's going to squeeze my hand when I get my eyebrows waxed?"

"And who's going to tell me if I look fat when I try stuff on?" Dylan asked.

"The mirror," Alicia said.

Kristen let out her famous raspy, phlegm-filled cackle.

"Massie, please don't leave me alone with them," Dylan joked.

Massie smiled with relief. They wanted her with them. They needed her with them. And that, as always, was all that mattered. But she also knew how quickly they could change their minds.

"You all go. But I want to hear every detail of what happened." Massie momentarily forgot her sick voice. "Every single one."

    I J'dore The Clique

    The clique is ah-mazing. Although the characters are bratty, spoiled, and selfish it is a good book because it teaches you how to deal with problems and there are stuff in this book that would probably never happen in real life such as a 12 year old girl needing the latest fashions everyday. I reccomend this book for girls that want to read about friendship, girl stuff, and last but not least cliques.

    What a shame....

    I've read bad books before, but this is just bad. I don't care if it's a popular series or if it's best-seller. Popularity doesn't tell you how good the book really is. Since almost every girl was reading this, I gave in and read it. This was one of the most shameful examples of our society today. These girls are seventh-graders! They act and talk like adults! The brand-name mentions, the cheesy phrases! Is this a book, or a magazine? The plot is nothing but fluff and they don't have real problems. This shows really how easy it is to write something and publish it. There are other more decent, better books out there. This book does not deserve the popularity it has. I'm ashamed to be in the age group this book is targeted to.

    Heart It!

    The Clique was a really good book. I thought Lisi Harrison did a really good job writing it. It was like it came right from a preteen's mind. Not only is it funny and humorous, it really tells you a lot about how junior high is. I learned from this book that girls can be mean, and instead of trying to fit in and go with the flow, be yourself. I couldn't stop reading these books until I got to the end of the series. Props to Lisi!! I reccommend this book to any girl looking for a good read.

    Clique (Clique Series #1)

    These books are about snobby, self-obsessed, fashion-fawning girls who have petty interests. It portrays the lives of girls who couldn't care less about school and would rather die than suffer from any blemishes. Books like this are a waste of time to read.The characters are wimpy and shallow, and the plot needs more basis than characters like these. It's just unfathomably sad. I wouldn't reccomend this book for anyone who likes books where emotions and thoughts are more important than money and looks.

    The Clique

    I loved this book! This whole series is an excellent read for any girl about ten and up. The main characters include Massie, who is a spoiled brat, Kristen, who is an athletic and very smart girl, Alicia who is a beautiful Spanish lady, and Dylan, who tries every diet out there. The main plot of this story is that Massie¿s parents¿ friends are not only moving to town, they are moving into Massie¿s guesthouse. When the Lyon¿s move in, Massie realizes she has to become fiends with this loser, Claire. <BR/> The writing style in this book is perfect teenage language. This is one of my favorite books because I can relate to so much going on. It is almost like the author stepped into the life of a thirteen-year-old. There is one part of the book where a conflict occurs between the clique and Claire. The girls text to communicate to help ruin the situation. This is one of the best books ever. I think any girl who reads this will absolutely love it!

    READ IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The clique by Lisi Harrison is filled with amazing twists that won’t let you put your book down! In the novel, Massie Block is the head of the most popular group at OCD (Octavian Country Day School)…THE CLIQUE. Massie’s clique includes her best friends Kristen, Alicia, and Dylan. But when Claire Lyons (in Massie’s view, a girl who wears nothing but gap) moves into Massie’s guesthouse, Massie’s world turns upside down. What will happen to Massie and her friends? Will the Clique break apart? Or will Claire join the clique? Although the book is Realistic Fiction, it’s filled with suspense.

    Raw Book

    The Clique

    I'm Maxine Carols Jones a 15-year-old sophomore from a little school in Holt.
    I read the Clique by Lisi Harrison. This is the first book out of the series and the first book that I've ever read. I enjoyed this drama-filled novel.
    With conflicts between Massie, Kristan, Alicia, Dylan, and Claire, this book introduces all five of these characters and more. Claire Lyons is from Florida and is moving to Westchester, New York, because her dad lost his job. She is not used to all the high fashion and the glamour so she fit in.
    Massie Block is the pretty, preppy alpha seventh grader. She runs her all-girl school. Massie always has to be the center of at attention. She has a hard time accepting others who don't dress and act like her.
    Alicia Rivera is just another follower of Massie. Dressing and acting just like her. She's like a clone. Same with Dylan Marvil.
    Kristan Gregory is not as much as a follower as the other girls. She plays her own sport and worries about school. In the book, you will find a suppressing thing that separates Kristan from all the other girls.
    Claire and her family moves to Florida and lives with Massie and her family until Claire's dad can find a job.
    I would give this book a 1 out of 5 because it's an ok book but has the same story line throughout the whole series.
    So if you like heart-quenching, drama-bursting books then you would love this series and never put the books down.

    Hilarious!

    I love the Clique Series. I own and have read every book in the collection. Lisi Harrison is a great author. I think the Clique is very relatable to teen girls. We've all been Massies ad we've all been Clairs in our life, and if you haven't, you will. Read this book, along with the rest of the series.

    Fun, Light book.

    If you're looking for a really deep, meaningful, shocking book with many well thought out plot twists, this is not the book for you. However, if you're looking for something that is a light read for fun, this book is great. When I was reading this book, I found it pretty hard to put down. It was amusing, and it did depict some realistic scenes. Overall, I would definitely read it, as long as you don't have expectations of a riveting book.

    A reviewer

    The Clique is a book that has no point, its just fluff!! There are millions of pieces of real literature out in the world so why would you waste your time reading a book about superficial and shallow seventh graders? I confess I've been known to read chick flicks and I've enjoyed them, but I am not intrigued enough by The Clique to read any more of the series. All its about is not being true to yourself, treating your friends horribly, and not following your morals. Oh yeah and like... cute boys and fashion and like, parties and stuff!! omg!!

    'Stupid Girls'

    This book makes Gossip Girls look like an intelligent, indepth book series. This book is more then just your typical,shallow, adolscent novel, its also horribly written. I actually enjoy reading books like this, usually.I'm beginning to feel like these types of novels are an epidemic! Everyone I know is reading them, and there so stupid & shallow! I get we live in cultrue where Paris Hilton is a role model and all that matters is clothes but for godsakes, its now infecting books! Look I'm not saying go out and read Jane Austen but these books are beneath teenagers. I would recommend this book to any one into the O.C. but if you have a brain, this pathetic excuse for literture is not for you.

    Great book

    This book is so great. For any young teen who is having any troubles at school should read this book. Now that I am 56 years old I wish I read this book when I was a young teen.
