The Clique Summer Collection #1: Massie by Lisi Harrison

The Clique Summer Collection #1: Massie (Clique Series) by Lisi Harrison is the first of the Clique Summer Collection books. I’ve never read the Clique books but every year I have a handful of students who love them. I’ve flipped through them before but I’ve never sat down and read one all the way through.

Massie is a spoiled brat. In fact, spoiled probably isn’t even a strong enough word. She drove me crazy throughout the book, tossing out designer names, treating her friends and parents like dirt, and generally being a miserable human being. Yet, I couldn’t put the book down. This is chick-lit for kids, silly, over-the-top, and fun to laugh at.  You would never want to be friends with Massie but you totally love laughing at her insanity!

I know there are some people who think the Clique series is teaching tweens to focus solely on looks and designer brands but my students laugh at that idea.  They tell me all the time that they know the books are fiction and they would never even talk to someone like Massie in real life.  But they do love reading about girls like her.
