Read full description of the books The Clique:(I've read a couple books from the series so this isn't only a review on the first one.)
I admit that this book is entertaining, watching girls throw around their money without a second thought about the starving kids in Africa (yes I know that everyone's tired of the phrase but it's true, and only a visit to a third world country can make you realize that.) - but that's all I can really get from it.
1. Great detail that can give the reader a sharp and vivid image in their minds and a series of twist and turns to keep them interested, but in the end, it all just comes down to pretty, popular, rich girls whose only goals in life is to date the cute boys, and take trips to the mall every. single. frickin'. day. "Ehmahgaa~wd!" (Sp? Forgive me, I don't speak bimbo.) How original! Really! "Mean Girls" anyone?
Only here's the borderline between the two - "Mean Girls" actually had a POINT and a MORAL. What was Clique's point? Acting like a bitch gets you somewhere in life? Bring other people down just to make yourself feel better? Friends are fakes? Shows how bright and cheery our beautiful world of teenagers really is, huh?
2. Somehow I find these characters (who are only thirteen and think that they can control the universe) are very unrealistic. But then again, I've never been into materialism so it's hard for me to understand why a girl would only think of "Chanel. Chanel. Chanel. Prada. Prada. Prada. Blah. Blah. Blah. Designer. Designer. Designer." (Makes me wonder what their grades are in school.) But then again, they're middle schoolers, and they come from wealthy families, so no wonder they don't really think about their futures. (Or rather, they fantasize about their future careers.)
3. Clique is also a bad influence for middle schoolers, which I believe is the main group of people the book is aiming to interest. And I'm not just saying that out of assumption. I've met preteens and kids in their early teen years gushing over Massie and her awesomeness, and then bragging about their OWN wealth. "My family owns (insert a double digit number here) acres of laa~and!" "My daddy owns a huuuge company~!" "My room is twice the size of youuur bedroom~" Blah. Blah. Blah. That's *wonderful* kids. Guess how many people in the world don't even HAVE a place to call home? (And Massie isn't really the best role model/character to look up to...)
I realize that the series isn't finished yet, so maybe the lesson of this whole whatever will reveal itself in the final chapters. Too bad I won't be reading those last few pages because I'd rather read books that are worth my time. But I hope that in the end, "Kuh-laire" will realize what a bunch of losers her so called "friends" are and will gain a lot more self-confidence (after LEAVING them and their stupid club!)
(PS - In case you were wondering, I numbered the paragraphs to show my different points. I can't type persuasive essays because I always ramble on to something different.)
