This book was not as long, nor as good as the others. Pluses, it was cheaper than the others, Massie was still a schemeing brat, and it all worked out well, for Massie at least. Minuses, SUPER short, kind of a weak plotline, not as much detail as normal, and Massie was A LOT meaner in this one. Well, hope the rest of the summer collection is better, TTYL.

When Massie Block gets kicked out of the expensive Galwaugh riding camp she doesn’t know what to do. When she goes to reunite with her parents at their summer home in Southampton, Massie expects to get a warm welcome, but instead, her rich parents force her to get her first summer job in order to pay them back for the riding camp. Since Massie wants to have fun while working she decides to get a jobby (job-hobby). The job that she ends up getting is being a Be Pretty saleswoman. The Be Pretty br ...more

The book Massie by Lisi Harrison is a contemporary or realistic fiction. This is the first of five books in The Clique Summer Series and the tenth Clique book. This summer Massie is attending the best-of-the-best horse riding camp, and gets kicked out. She has a team made up of her and her three summer best friends. One of which is “not the best rider around”, so Massie decides to illegally glue her to her saddle, during a judged contest. This is all in order to win the competition for the sixth ...more

This book is part of the Clique Series, yet it is the first book of the Clique Summer Collection where it is about the girl's summer and what happened before the very last book that came out for the Clique Series. I enjoyed this book, yet it was really short so it felt like as if the story of Massie's summer was kind of rushed and that is one thing I don't like about this book. I was kind of expecting certain things that might happen and I was basically correct because from all the books, I know ...more

This book is part of the summer series. The summer series is about all of the girls' summers away from each other. This is Massie's story. I thought the summer series was a very creative way for author, Lisi Harrison, to give readers a more detailed and better understanding of each girl’s personality and life. Lisi did a great job of using realistic situation and current trends to add interest and voice. Furthermore, she uses dialogue and current sayings to enhance voice. Although the beginning ...more

This book was about Massie Block, and what she did over the summer. She is a rich, spoiled girl who goes to one of the most exclusive horse back riding camps, Westchester riding camp. But she gets kicked out for creating a plan for her and her team mates to cheat. Since one of the challenges was to jump over something while on the horse, she decided to glue one of her team mates (who just simply couldnt make the jump without falling off) to the horse saddle. After she got kicked out, her parents ...more
Lisi Harrison's book, Massie, caught me by suprise with Massie's

determination in life.

The setting in this book takes place mostly at The Block Mansion

which is Massie Block's house. In the beginning of the book, Massie is

at a horse-riding camp. The camp is about to have a competition and in

the end Massie gets kicked out of the camp because she glued a girl's

rear end to a saddle to keep the girl on the horse. Now that her summer

is free, she has no idea what to do. All of her friends are aw

In this book Massie was at a special riding camp for rich people like her and she got kicked out for cheating cuz she is so obsessed with winning and being #1 and on top of things all the time. So when she gets home her parents are furious and they take her credit card away and wont give it back until she gets a summer job and pays them back to teach her a lesson. Her parents gave some suggestions but of course she said no and tried to find a job on her own, when all of a sudden she was reading ...more

Massie is prepared to spend the summer at the best riding camp in NY, Galwaugh Farms Sleepaway Riding Camp, when she is given the boot after gluing the owner’s granddaughter to her saddle in order to win, getting the whole team disqualified as well. Her parents are disappointed in her and want her to pay them back, so she must get a summer job or “jobby” in Massie’s words as she will not get a summer job. She gets the perfect idea, to be Be Pretty Cosmetics girl. At first she tries to go by the ...more

This book was way too short, but I still think it was as good as the other Clique books. I thought it was pretty funny that Massie had to get a summer job. Ehmagawd is right. I can't believe how it ends. I was a little confused in the beggining about Massie being in Southampton, I guess I didn't pay much attention to the headers on the first page of the chapters. When Massie had called Kristen to invite her to stay with her and Kristen said she couldn't leave Westchester, I was a little lost. Af ...more

Massie is such a manipulative, scheming brat that you almost have to admire her for it. There were actually some really funny parts in this book. I treat them as sort of a satire. I do find it hard to believe that Be Pretty cosmetics would let an 8th grade girl simply call up and begin peddling their wares. That's why I look at it as a satire.

Alright, I'm done with the entire Clique Summer Series. I didn't go in order though. :) Either way, I definitely had fun reading the series. Massie's story is probably one of the ones that I hated the most next to Claire's. Maybe it's because of the lack of romance (but I doubt it). Massie was being a MAJOR bee-yotch, and I couldn't really tolerate that. She was EXTREMELY shallow that I couldn't even register all of it until I finished the book. Her hard-hitting, tough-love, I'm-being-honest-wit ...more
I used to love the Clique series, but after reading this book I honestly can't remember the reason. Here is my long lists of rants:

1. This coming from the person who types everything out fully on IM: when you type a word, do it right. I got so tired of the "Gawd", "ah-dorable", and "ehmygods" that filled this book.

2. It was only 120 pages and I didn't feel like there was really any plot or plot devolpment or anything. It was just very boring.

3. Massie comes off as such a spoiled rich kid I just

This book was amazing!!! I absolutely love this author and all of her series. I can not wait to read about Dylan, Alicia, Claire, and Kristen!
I really liked all the twists and turns in this book. Massie is so devious when it comes to selling things and getting a job. Or what she calls a "jobby". This book was amazing. I also really liked how it was only about her. She was the center of attention, like she always wants! I also really like how Massie always gets what she wants and never lets those

I think that Massie's book out of the summer collection. But it didn't really get me interested. After Massie gets kicked out of the expensive Galwaugh farm she doesn't just lose her horseback riding friends but she also loses her summer. When she goes to reunite with her family she is expecting to a warm welcome home, but instead Massie is forced to find a summer job.

i didn't like it as much as other Cliwue books and it didn't really have a good message. But I still liked it a bit.

"Massie-summer collection" I thought was going to be a better novel, but I still enjoyed it. I think its for a little younger audience than myself, but even for me all the outfits she tells you about that she is putting on you better know a lot about fashion and high class designers or you won't know what she's saying. It had a lot of drama, but as I said earlier it is aimed at a little younger audience than myself. "Massie-summer collection" is manly about how she gets kicked out of her elite h ...more

This book was very good over-all, but there were some good things and some bad things about it. The author, Lisi, didn't explain things as much as she should, and the way she does it in other books. So, Massie's parents want her to develop some responsibility, wherefore; they take her credit card and force her to get a job if she ever wants to get them back. Now that she doesn't have any direct funds she gets a job at the Be Pretty cosmetic line. The company's motto is "Everyone is beautiful on ...more

after the movie and other books its good to see different perspectives
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).

I thought that this book was good but not great. There wasn't very much action or suspense in this book. I did like how the tone changed so many times though. I would recommend this book to people who are into books with drama and fashion.
I thought Massie by: Lisi Harrison was an okay book. As I begin to read this series it seems to be a little boring at first. Although, at the same time I thought it was great because of the text messages that were sent in the book when Massie was talking to all of her friends when they are all on vacation. Having many names in this book is very hard to remember too.
Massie was a smooth running book almost like I was reading her diary because it was mostly about Massie since her good gossip frie

I love this book, I love how it's short and cute and gives a glimpse of the way the brain of this character works. I love Lisi Harrison's writing, it's witty and entertaining and I honestly look forward to reading more of her works.

Now let me complain about something else, something that has nothing to do with the author.

I bought Massie as well as Dylan and Alicia, the next two books in the Clique Summer Collection few years ago at a discount sale at one of the biggest publishing companies here

"Massie" from the Clique Series was and "AH-mazing" book as Massie, herself, would say. The book starts with Massie preparing for the JACC competition that she won six years straight but it might change because of Salma Gallman a.k.a "Fall - A - Abdul". Salma has been falling of her horse and this could jeopardize her victory therefore she and one of her summer BFFs decide to glue Salma to her horse and she actually ends up doing pretty well because she did the whole thing "side-saddle".
