Kristen is stuck in Westchester while her friends are scattered all over the globe. The good thing is she met Dune, a hot surfer dude. The bad thing is she's tutoring his brat sister Ripple, who wants to be a tiny Massie. With the help of Kristen's secret, can she get Dune from Skye, the 8th grader Alpha?
I think this book was pretty good, because it kinda related to an everyday life thing when people stay to themselves or they have 1 group of friends that they hang out with.

Kristen is stuck in Westchester for the summer like always, spending it as Ripple’s math tutor. The real reason Ripple hired her however, is to get info on Massie so she can transform herself into her as she wants to get her crush that has a crush on Massie. Kristen decides to help her in exchange for info on her older brother Dune whom she totally loves. Kristen tries morph herself into the opposite of an OCDiva the skater/surfer boys call it and into a tomboy to get Dune when 8th grade alpha S...more

I don't think any Clique Summer Collection book has gotten more than 3 stars from me, which is rare, because Lisi Harrison's books are definitely worth 5 stars. But what I discovered while reading The Summer Collection is that Lisi is just trying to write a fun, quick story about the girls' summer, so I expected them to be shallow. I read "Alicia" and hated it, and when I saw Kristen was next I wasn't looking forward to it. Kristen was probably my least favorite Clique character. That has change...more
Massie is the first book of the Summer Collection, a group of side stories revolving around the members of the "Pretty Committee" from Lisi Harrison's "The Clique" series of popular and controversial books. Each of the Summer Collection titles follows one of the characters through her summer vacation in between the seventh and eighth grades (or, chronologically, in between Sealed With a Diss and Bratfest At Tiffany's in The Clique series).

Plot: Kristen Gregory has the distinction of being the on...more

I think this is the best book out of the summer collection series. Though there are many spelling mistakes in this book, I like the plot idea. This is about Kristen Gregory getting a summer job. She gets hired to tutor a girl named Ripple every week, but when Kristen finds out that Ripple wants to use Kristen to learn to be like Massie, Kristen gets mad. Just after Kristen decides to quit her job, Ripples drop dead gorgeous brother, Dune, comes home. Kristen has as huge crush on Dune and will do...more

So far in THE CLIQUE SUMMER COLLECTION series, this has to be my favorite ending of them all!

Kristen is the character in the CLIQUE series that I have always secretly rooted for, because she is more realistic then some of her friends. She wants so badly to have money, and works so hard to fit in with the group that has endless amounts of it.

This book really made her character come to life, and I loved every page!

Even though she's stuck at home, sh...more

I definitely liked this book, but it could've been MUCH better. The conflict was kinda...cheesy. It was very simplisctic, and could've been a lot more complexed and detailed. Kristen crushing on Dune was a very cute story to hear about. However, Dune seemed a tiny bit jerky. Ripple was a total *****, who I didn't like very much. She's only NINE! Kristen was the sporty, smart, but stylish girl. The ending was cute, but far too short. It was a sweet gesture for Dune to give Kristen his neckalace....more
This book is one of the summer series. Kristen is a tutor for a little girl with a hawt older brother named Dune. But Dune's little sister only hired her to get Massie info. Massie is the alpha and Dune's little sister wants to be just like her. Kristen only took the job because she wants to get info on Dune from his little sister. Dune has started hanging out with the 9th grade alphas. Kristen feels totally not as pretty as them so she feels like she is losing Dune. But then Dune tells the 9th...more

I finished this book in two days. I find Kristen's character to be fascinatingly controversial.

This book was good. I feel bad for Kristen at some times, and not at others. I rate this book 4/5 stars. **** . -Signing off, Emma XoXo...

Once again, pretending to be something they're not.
Unlike all her friends, Kristen is stranded in Westchester County since her parents aren't rich like the Pretty Committee's parents. She ends up babysitting and tutoring Ripple, a big Massie-fan and starts crushing on her big brother Dune. This family of surfers starts inviting Kristen to the beach and wave surfing which has Kristen's heart in a whirlpool. Will she try to keep Dune by her side or hide what is going on with her anti-blue crush friends.
"Kristen" was pretty good, but seemed short. Okay, I know it was a short book, but the way it only spanned a few days made it doubly short. I loved the Witty Committee thing and finally being able to see the clique world in Kristen's eyes. I also heart the fact Layne (who is awesome) is accepted by two PC members now. This book was worse than "Massie"- just barely- but better than "Alicia", "Dylan", and "Claire". I'll give it four stars.
This book is more of a teenager girl who tutors a little child, and one day she falls in love with the child's brother. Read the book if you want to know about the adventure they go through! I thought this book was okay. It was not the best, yet not the worst. I would recommend it to teens who are into romantic novels and teenager's lifestyle.
Kristen is not 1 of the main characters, but she is 1 of the PC members u don't want 2 mess with. She might not be rich but she is a double threat. She is smart x10 and she can rock a boy hair cut. Even with or with our the hair cut she is a blonde beauty! Now she has a crush on 1 surfer cutie, will she be able 2 date him or hate him?
This was by far the worst Clique book ever, well maybe it's tied for worst with Bratfest at Tiffany's. Anyways, this book hardly has a story. In Massie, Dylan, and Alicia, the stories actually had different things going on and they were good books, but Kristen-ironic how it's also my name- was 1 word: HORRIBLE!! :-( :-(
Well would you look at that? Kristen having a summer fling with Dune! Do I hear some waves and surfing or what? She will stop at nothing to get noticed by him even if it means taking down the super popular, super pretty Skye Hamilton. Will it end badly or will Kristen get the boy of her dreams? Surf's up dude! :)
in the book "the cliuiqe Kristin" it was ok and a little to easy for me. The book is mostly about this girl named Kristin and how she goes through her summer without her pretty comittee there with her.
I gave this book a three because the book was not so enjoying and I got a little bored with it.

This was such a good book. Taking a girly girl into a beachy trouble maker. This was a good typical romance book but it was a little diffrent than all the rest. It did have a lot of conflict in it buth Lisa always found a way to clear it up unexpectdly. Fantastic book to read to keep you occupied!
this is a really good book if u r really into love books and some ways to look at ur self. if u hang out with people and u r a part of the group and u dont wanna get out of the group cause ur popular then here r some ways to look at the other side of u and not just the popular side of u.
This book is really good. THis book is good because Kristin has a great imagination. This makes the book more interesting and makes me think about what is going to happen next. Overall the book is really good and but it could have been longer.
Blah Blah Blah
This book has the same exact plot as the other books in the "clique summer collection" series. The only reason i read them is to criticize their errors. Like how white iClassics don't exist. DUUUUH!
Interesting. I do have to say that I liked Kristin's secret society of friends. I didn't, however, think that Dune was that believable. Like seriously, what kind of guy confesses his love to a girl so openly?!

This book is great because we don't really hear from Kirsten very much in the other books so it's diffferent to see how she thinks and how she has to keep up with the couture ways of her friends.
