November Book of the Month

The Clique
A Novel By Lisi Harrison

Just a quick heads up: This is a mean book!

Massie Block is the 7th grade girl that everyone wants to be. She is the ruler of the clique and the social scene at OCD, Octavian Country Day School, an exclusive private girls' school in Westchester County, New York. Her life is just perfect until Claire Lyons shows up.

Claire is the daughter of her father's old college friend. Claire's family will be living in the Block's guesthouse while her father starts work for Mr. Block and they look for a new home. It is clear from the start that Claire is not clique material with her new Keds and two year old white Gap jeans.

Massie decides to make Claire's life miserable for no other reason than that she can and that she is the "new girl". Massie enlists her clique of friends to help harass and humiliate Claire. Claire fights back and ends up getting her revenge . . . sort of.

This book sucks you into the shallowness of the has, versus the has nots. The school has a Starbucks in the cafeteria, designer clothes, cameras, phones and all of these "things" have an expiration date and before the year is out so is everything you own!

This is the first book in this series so stay tuned for more meaness. You will just love it!

The Clique . . . the only thing harder than getting in is staying in so come in and check it out!
