The "Clique" girls are back in the Summer "Clique" series! Each book features a different girl and in this one it features Massie. After Massie gets kicked out of the prestige riding stable after a stunt she played to get one of the girls to stay in their saddles, she is back to her parents house for the summer. *sigh*, and her besties aren't there with her! And yikes!! Her closet at home is so outdated! Massie goes to use her credit card to purchase some new outfits and what do you know, the card is cancelled! Massie's parents decide as punishment to the stunt she played that got ther kicked out of the school, she has to get a job and pay them back for the fee's of the school. Massie' summer dreams all fade away as she starts her search for the perfect summer job that would be more like a jobby (job+hobby). She's having no such luck....until she see's a certain add in a Vogue magazine which is to sell makeup products to people. Massie starts her job and is loving it, however, she goes a little overboard with the ways she convinces people. Will Massie Summer turn out to be ok after all? Or will it all come tumbling down even more?

I was pretty disappointed with this book actually. Massie was so spoiled and didn't care about anyones feelings except her own, so selfish! Another thing that bugged me was the horseback riding parts. It was so unrealistic! Overall, I did not espcially like this book, however, if you would like to try it, it would make a light easy beach read!

It does happen - not loving a book. I can't say I've read any of the Clique books, but it doesn't seem like the first thing I'd pick up. Hopefully your next book you'll love more! :)

I agree-Massie is such a snob! I'd really like to see her grow more in upcoming books. But you should definitely keep reading the summer collection books--# 2, Dylan, is the best!

i really was suprised with the ending of this book. however, i did luh-v it, just as i luh-ved the other books. i give much respect to the author, Lisi Harrison, for she deserves it much. i also recomend finishing the entire clique series. check out lisi's blah-g at! :) i'm also very suprised at how polite all the comments are on here :)
