The Halloween Party has come and gone and so has the fashion show. The Clique is starting to fall apart and Massie is rounding up her best buds to stay with her. So is Claire now really in? Especially now that Alicia is friends with Olivia?
The third installment of The Clique was definitely interesting. It never slowed down in the world of what the girls will do to stay in The Clique (or create their own new one). With a fashion shoot on the horizon and new friends popping up, this is definitely one in the series to read.
I think I enjoyed this one the most because it showed more of some of the other characters and they appeared to have backbone and that is a good thing to see - girls shouldn't be ruled by one leader. Alicia breaking out and trying to start her own clique was neat to watch and the ending of the book is good. It also shows the bad side of friendship, but thankfully some of the characters show remorse for things that were done.
It's the usual middle school drama in the book, but it was good. I enjoyed every moment of this book and can't wait to read the next one. Massie becomes more human, Claire is still Claire and I still love the little brother Todd as a character, and he is a character.
Come join the fun and get into The Clique.
About the Book:
Thanksgiving. Weeks before Christmas. Alicia and Olivia are on their way to Manhattan so the Teen People editors can do a story on them about winning the Octavian Country Day uniform design contest. When Massie finally processes that the girls who hijacked her victory are also modeling for Teen People, she is livid. It should have been her. 'Ehmagod, what will everyone think when they find out it wasn't me who was asked to model? I will be SO over.' Massie decides it's time to get revenge. This snake can not lay idle in the weeds for one more second. Kristen and Dylan throw out terrible 'revenge' suggestions and Massie vetoes them all. She will think of something! But first she has to go home and exfoliate. The social minefields of Westchester County's most privileged middle school girls drive the page-turning action of this addictive series, set in New York City's most elite suburban county. The Clique . . . the only thing harder than getting in is staying in.Challenges:
