Best Friends for Never by Lisi Harrison
My rating: 4.0/5.0
Publisher: Little Brown Young Readers
Release Date: October 6, 2004
The second in The Clique series focusing on 5 middle school girls, 4 who are definitely in and one that might be in. I have seen a lot of people were put off by the name of this book, but as one who had a spat with my best friends in middle school, the name does not bother me. No I don't believe all girls will go through this - but some do.
While this wasn't as good as the first or third book, it was good. In this one Massie wants to have a boy/girl Halloween party and introducing boys into The Clique mix definitely makes things interesting. The girls begin fighting over a boy and Claire is somewhat in with The Clique since she and Massie are throwing the party together. Claire thankfully continues her friendship with Layne and her brother Todd is up to his usual antics (I love Todd). Overall this is a quick and enjoyable read. Clean for the younger teenagers, and a good book. I quickly went from the first book to this one and couldn't wait to start the third.
About the Book:
In the second book starring Westchester County's most privileged middle schoolers, the Clique declares Massie a hero for hosting the first boy/girl Halloween party of 8th grade. Massie's already hired Landon Dorsey, the hottest party planner in the 9-1-4 area code, but her parents insist she has to invite the entire class. Unfortunately that means everyone. Layne is bummed that the boys will be there -- she IMs Claire that's so "DESPR8" -- as Claire wonders if maybe a boyfriend will make her happy.Meanwhile, Massie and the Clique are fighting over who gets to invite Derek Herrington. Dylan thought it was obvious that she was the one who danced all night with Derek at the OCD benefit last month, but says "Whatevs" when Kristen gets all weird about it. Fine, she can have him. He was a terrible dancer anyway and there will be tons of guys to choose from at the party....
