This Story takes place in Westchester County, New York. Massie and her friends hang out in her room which is all white except for her purple bedspread, at the mall, and Octavian Country Day School.
Massie Block- Massie Block is the main character of the book. With her glossy brunette bob and laser-whitened smile she is gorgeous. She is the ruler of The Clique and everybody else at OCD. And loves Chanel anything. She isn’t very nice, and she knows you’d give anything to be just like her.
Dylan Marvel- Massie’s second in command who divides her time between sucking up to Massie and sucking down Atkins diet shakes. She has red hair and her mom is the host for Wake Up New York show.
Alicia Rivera- As sneaky as she is beautiful, Alicia floats under the adult radar because she seems so “sweet.” She has brown hair and people like to make fun of her because of her big boobs. And adores Louis Vuitton bags. Would love to take Massie’s throne one day. Just might.
Kristen Gregory- She’s smart, hardworking, and can insult you to tears faster than you can say “my haircut isn’t ugly!” She is very sporty and loves to play soccer for OCD.
Claire Lyons-Claire is the new girl 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 guest house 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, Caire might just come up smelling like Chanel No. 19…
My favorite character is Massie or Alicia. The reason why is I can relate to both of them. Alicia does ballet, and hip hop just like me. Massie on the other hand is a leader and we both like to be in charge.
Since this is a series of books I’m going to talk about the first book. In the beginning one of Massie’s dad’s friends just moved from Florida to New York. They are staying in Massie and her family’s guest house until they can find another home. Claire and Massie are completely different. As the story goes on they are always butting heads. Claire desperately wants to be in the Pretty Committee with Massie and her friends. But Claire needs to prove if she really wants it or not.
I thought the ending was okay. I wish the author would have told what happened to the characters after the story. It was just kind of like a drop off ending.
Throughout the whole series I think the message is that you should treat others the ways you want to be treated. For example Massie treats others like dirt and later in the story karma came back to get her.
I recommend this book to almost anyone. I don’t think this book is right for anyone under the age of 12 because there is some content that is inappropriate. Another bad thing is the book might go out of style after awhile because they talk a lot about fashion so some of the designers might not be as popular as they were before, concluding in the book being called lame because of the contents, but other than that this book is great.
The book all about…
About the Author
Lisi Harrison, the author of the Clique Series was born in Toronto, Canada. She did not go to a private school like Massie, in fact she went to a Hebrew school until ninth grade then went to Forest Hill Collegiate a public high school. There were many kids in her school that had a lot of money but her on the other hand wasn’t aloud to wear anything other than K-Mart or Hanes. Her parents tried to keep her as unspoiled as possible.
She worked at MTV for 12 years. There were so many employees who worked at MTV who would do and wear anything just to be accepted by the “cool people.” These people reminded her so much of when she was in seventh grade so she just had to write about and that’s how she started writing the series.
