The Clique by Lisi Harrison (2004) 220 pgs 1st in series
Oh…The Clique, there is one in every school, that one group of people that for whatever strange reason you want to be a part of even though you know that it wouldn’t be a good fit. Popularity can do strange things to you. For Claire it’s no different. When her family movies into the guest house of the Block’s, her small town morals are about to change in a big town way. The moment Massie, Dylan, Alicia, and Kristen meet Claire they are determined to be rid of her for she is a “fashion disaster.” There are a series of trials that will test both The Clique’s loyalty to each other and just how far Claire is willing to go to become a part of Massie’s crowd.
