Overview

As long as there have been girls in schools, there have been cliques—a particularly malicious and subtle form of bullying that isn't always recognized for what it is. And with the growing role of social media, their mean-spirited goals have only become easier to achieve.
Cliques: Deal with it using what you have inside, the latest book in the Deal With It series, offers young readers up-to-date discussions about: distinguishing groups from cliques, inclusion/exclusion, gossip, cyberbullying, self-esteem and peer pressure. The book directly addresses the problem of cliques, and provides many practical tips on how to identify, confront, and overcome it—with style. The text is written to be comfortable for every reader, whether on the inside making trouble for someone else, on the outside or as a bystander wondering what to do. Quizzes, comics and graphic-novel-style illustration help make this book a fun and accessible way to approach an often difficult-to-address problem.

Children's Literature - Krisan Murphy
If a tween or teenager needs the inside scope on cliques, this modern graphic art paperback is an excellent resource. Mototsune uses the following appealing formats to convey her message: bulleting, question and answer, comic strips, quizzes, dispelling myths, and lists of do's and don'ts. The book clearly defines the meaning of a clique in the "101" section. A quiz contains realistic scenarios that further explain the differences between a healthy group and a detrimental clique. Three stereotype members of a clique are brought to light: the insider, the outsider, and the witness. Neither preachy nor condescending, this user-friendly interactive book gives sound advice. The "Dear Clique Counselor" pages ask and answer difficult questions for the student who needs straight forward answers. An excellent resource for teachers or a classroom, the last page lists books, websites, videos and even hotline phone numbers which assist kids distressed by cliques. This will become a well-worn book in any home or school library. Look for three other books in this "Deal With It" series for adolescents on coping with cyber bullying, image, and gaming.
