Literally the most pathetic book series I've ever read. And I should know, because I've read the first 5 books in the series (only out of boredom and because each book takes about a 1/2 hour to read. Go ahead, call me a lifeless loser.)
This Lisi Harrison woman calls herself an author--and yet she has the vocabulary of an 8 year old. "Massie looked proud." "Claire felt confused." Very sophisticated writing right there. She also can't come up with more than one plotline. If you take out the details, all the books are exactly the same: at first, Massie is perfect and popular. Then, someone comes in and threatens her position at the top. Oh no! Thankfully, Massie's ass-kissing "friends" step in and save the day. Hooray! Massie is back on top. Once you get to books 2-3, you start to think "haven't I read this before?" That's because you have. Once you get to books 4-5, you start to realize that it's the same story each time, and the author just fills in the blanks with details. Most of the characters are the same way. The four original "clique" girls (Massie, Alicia, Dylan and Kristen) have the same personalities ane are pretty much interchangable. The fact that one is poor and another is on a diet doesn't change anything. Claire, the new girl, is different though--at first. When I started reading the first book, I expected that it would be about how Claire overcomes the clique and gains confidence. Nothing happened in the first book, so I read the second one. By the end of the second book and the beginning of the third, Claire got sucked in to the clique. Now she is molded to the rest of the characters, and the books have no purpose except to show how Massie gets everything she wants. This, I'm guessing, goes on throughout the series (if I find time to read the rest of the series, I will, because I'm curious how idiotic the books actually get).
If you are very very bored like I was, then you'll probably get an hour or two of mindless entertainment out of these books. If you want to read a book about shallowness that doesn't take an ounce of thinking, then this is definitely the book for you. Otherwise, stay away from this book.
The Clique Series is a waste of paper and ink.
A series written by Lisi Harrison. Some of the books (in the order in they were published) are:
1) The Clique
2) Best Friends For Never
3) Revenge of the Wannabes
4) Invasion of the Boy Snatchers
5) The Pretty Committee Strikes Back
6) Dial L For Loser
7) It's Not Easy Being Mean
The series is about the Pretty Committee, a clique formed by Massie Block. This clique
1) Massie Block - Miss "Queen Bee". Very rich and loves to have everything her way.
2) Alicia Rivera - The "Spanish Beauty". Prettiest Girl at OCD. Massie's "beta", or "second-in-hand".
3) Claire Lyons - A total loser. Massie mocks her sometimes, but they are very good friends and Massie teaches Claire how to be Pretty Committee material.
4) Dylan Marvil - Daughter of Merri-Lee Marvil, who has a talkshow called "The Daily Grind". Obsessed with losing weight, even though she's already skinny.
5) Kristen Gregory - Blonde, smart, and athletic. Super-strict parents, and hid the fact that she's poor until the third book, Revenge of the Wannabes.
These girls rule OCD, and have everything their way. They are all rich (except for Kristen) and wear everything designer.

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 faster than you can say "my haircut isn't ugly!"
Claire Lyons- 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 gue...
It is a series of books written by Lisi Harrison aimed towards tween girls who enjoy reading about cliques,popular kids getting whatever they want, and completely unrealistic school settings. The series has become quite popular and can be found in many Borders and Barnes&Noble's across the U.S.
It's not neccessarily bad...it just depends on what kinds of books you like to read.
Back in middle school, I decided to read one of the Clique Series books since many of my friends were in love with it...and then turned out to be weirded out/dissapointed/bored due to said book.
