Booting Up: These Boots Are Made for Stalking (The Clique, Book 12 ) by Lisi Harrison
HAS THE CLIQUE OUTGROWN THEIR
EHMAGAWD! Has Derrington wiggled his backside for Dylan for the last time?
May be. As Halloween nears, Massie Block, the Clique alpha, has turned on her deadly BiteMeBerry-glossed smile and toasted her latest crush, ninth-grader Landon Crane, with a double Draculatte. Following her lead, the other Pretty Committee girls seem to be ditching the eighth-grade boys at Briarcliffe for ninth-grade hawties at Abner Doubleday Prep as well. And at the least, Massie's pup Bean has it bad for Landon's doggie Bark, and Massie is not above sending Bean in for a puppy playdate with a spycam collar to make sure that her new crush is faithful, especially since hearing rumors that he's been seen with a tattooed mystery girl Massie calls "Anklebird."
But as always, the Pretty Committee ranks are restive. Massie has coped with palace coups before, especially from co-alpha wannabe Alicia Rivera, but this time it's the compliant Claire who refuses to go along with the program. Kuh-laire clings to her eighth-grade crush Cam and even invites Massie's anti-pop nemesis, Layne Abelay, clad in a tacky LBR orange Ghouls Just Wanna Have Fun tee, to the Clique's pre-Halloween planning party for their trick or treat appearance as Trampires (hawt vampires).
And when Claire discovers her inner thespian and starts spending all her free time onstage and off with Layne's Westchester Kids Theatre, Massie decides it is time to boot up for a text message shootout at the karaoke corral:
"this. is. war." she texts.
"bring. it. on." Claire replies.
Lisi Harrison's just published sequel, The Clique #12: These Boots Are Made for Stalking (Clique Series) (Little, Brown, 2010) takes her best-selling series into new territory as Massie Block attempts to stake out a place in the Transylvania of high school hawties for herself and her Pretty Committee. And there's no need to worry that the Clique is going to stalk right out of our lives any time soon: Harrison's next installment, The Clique #13: My Little Phony (Clique Series) is going to come galloping into publication, appropriately enough, on July 13, 2010.
