THE CLIQUE : A NOVEL
Boston : Little, Brown, 2004
Claire is the new 7th grade girl at an elite New York private school. Although she’s a pretty blonde, she’s not like the other students: her clothes are out of date and not top designer names, and her family has no money. Claire’s father is friends, though, with the leader of the popular girls, Massie Block. Claire would like to be friends with Massie and her clique. But when Massie’s parents try to make her include Claire with her group, Massie and her friends rebel by constantly humiliating Claire in public and saying and doing cruel things to her. However, Claire’s not going to lie down and roll over. They all underestimate her ability to fight back. (Davinna Artibey, Denver Center for International Studies, DPS, CO)
