Mean Girls meets Middle School in The Clique... The only thing harder than getting in, is staying in.
Enter Claire Lyons, the new girl from Florida in Keds and two-year-old Gap overalls, who is clearly not Clique material. Unfortunately for her, while they look for a new home, Claire's family is staying in the guesthouse of the one and only Massie Block -- Queen Bee of Octavian Country Day School. 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.
Meet the rest of the Clique:
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!"

It has the same storyline as the book, which is amazing! but this just looks really weird, and it doesn't really flow like the books do.

The Clique takes a whole new twist on the "Mean Girls" point of view. The dramatic and hilariously worded novel focuses on Massie Block and her "clique", 4 girls who rule the school. But when Claire Lyons, a bubbly, Florida newbie gets in on the action, their worlds collide and the clique jumps right into it, coming up with devious schemes faster than you can say "ehmagawd!” This book is great for 12 - 16 year old girls, who want to read a quick, detailed recount of your above-average alpha. The book is on-point and written perfectly from the perspective of what an ultra-rich, super mean alpha could only sound like. At times, it seemed almost exaggerated (Come on, what 7th grader walks around with a Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs boots?), and a bit satirical, but it just made the book a little more fun and quirky. Another minor flaw is that the girls in the book are a bit unrealistic with their dramatic behavior and obsession with high school boys, designer clothing and popularity. However, this book is definitely something more than the typical middle school drama. Between the cat-fights and sabotages, "The Clique" teaches a great message about staying true to your friends, as well as yourself. Sure, maybe the writing style is a little annoying to have to get used to, because it’s written from the perspective of a preteen, but after finishing the book, you want to read it all over again. I'd highly recommend this to anyone who wants something more intense and dramatic than your average tween "Mean Girls" plotline.

When Claire Lyons moves to Westchester from Orlando, Massie Block is displeased from having to live with the Lyons. You could say they're like enemies. Good book overall.

When LBR (loser beyond repair) Claire Lyons is forced to move into massie blocks (Octavian country day schools queen bee) guesthouse, she immediately wants in on the pretty committee - Alicia riviera, Dylan marvil, Kristen Gregory, and, of course, massie block, the alpha of the clique. What Claire doesn't know is that massie can be very determined- and now, she's determined that Claire will never be her friend.

When Claire Lyons moves from her tacky, old Florida home to live in the fashionable Westchester, she meets Massie, Dylan, Kristen and Alicia - The Pretty Committee. In other words, the alphas of OCD. Claire figures she had an easy chance of joining their Clique - considering she moved in to Massie's guest house. Little does she know it will be a lot harder then it looks.
