Guest Review: The Clique (Book 1) by Lisi Harrison

From ReggieWrites: Hey guys! This is a guest reviewer for The Clique series. Her blog is called 'Click with The Clique'. It's really cool. Go check it'll be worth it!


Title: The Clique (Book 1)
Author: Lisi Harrison

Meet 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 on Octavian Country Day School, an exclusive private girls' school in Westchester Country, 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 beatiful, Alicia floats easily under adult radar because she seem 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!"

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, Claire's family is staying in the guesthouse on Massie's family 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, Claire might just come up like Chanel No.19. . . .

The first thing I noticed about the book was that it was very materialistic, almost superficial. The author used many references like Prada, Gucci, etc. Harrison was very detailed with the bags, clothes, gloves, and hats. She was very specific and she mentioned what kind of brand each accessory was.

Harrison's writing was very smooth. She was able to make the drama exciting. Harrison constantly kept me on edge. I read the whole book in three hours. It's just THAT good.

I loved all the characters. They were dynamic and life-like, and at the same time, they were fun. Even though Massie, Dylan, Alicia, and Kristen were mean, I couldn't help but admire their characters. Massie was so evil to Claire, her attitude was very snobbish and posh. Also I like the ways of how The Clique was so mean to Claire. Spilling paint on her brand new white pants, and giving her the wrong direction was very rude of them.

My favorite part of the story is when Claire sneaks to Massie's room and goes on her messenger to chat with Dylan, Alicia, and Kristen. She does a lot of things in Massie's messenger to destroy the friendship of Dylan, Alicia, and Kristen, so Claire can take the place of Massie. On the other side, there was no part that I disliked, I really liked the way the author made the plot of the story.

I think this book is excellent and will be one of my favorite books. This is a HAVE to read book. :D
