This review is from: The Clique (Paperback)
This book, "The Clique", overall is a charming story about tweens ganging up on the "new girl" who is less fortunate than these upper crust Westchester snobs. Even the cover should give away some information about the story since its bearing the classic Burberry print.
However, I didn't think that the 7th grade girls were portrayed accurately. I don't think any 7th grader would act that mature. I know because my daughter goes to a New York City all-girls private school. I read this book because I wanted to learn more about how girls interacted with each other this day in age. I chose this book because it seemed the most appealing the time. When I finished this book my daughter found it, read it, and told me it was mixture of: Gossip Girl (how money, wealth, and designers are incorporated) + Mean Girls (how the girls acted and the strategies they used against each other) + lastly, the A-List & the sequel Girls on Film (the insecurites of the girls and wealth).
