I enjoyed this book. It was very girly, cute and fun! I liked the idea of how the girls go on the trip with the guys!

At the beginning of the book, I was a little confused with the Pretty Committee’s relationship with Claire. They were treating her like a friend but they seemed weird about it. They seemed kind of shaky and like they didn’t open of the door to their clique fully, so to say. Why were they treating her that way? I thought they were cool.

I know that Massie loves her friends; I learne

This was a fun book with a L-O-T of drama. See my book review from below:

DRAMA! When Octavian Country Day (OCD) school goes on a class trip, each member of the Pretty Committee (PC), the coolest girls at OCD, has a secret or some personal drama. Massie, the PC's head alpha, lied about having kissing experience to hold a kissing clinic to raise money for her friend, Kristen, a member of the PC; no one except the PC knows Kristen's family couldn't afford the school's trip fees. Will the girls of t

After Alicia’s sassy cousin Nina, who stole everyone’s heart, was proven for the devious thief she really was, Massie expected all to adore her once again. Yet, she overhears some of her fans planning to get in touch with Nina for some boy advice. Massie can’t have her admirers thinking she hasn’t any experience with boys, so she starts “Massie’s Underground Clinic for Kissing (M.U.C.K.) even though she’s never kissed a boy herself.

I like this book because how Dylan,Alicia,and Massie want to pay for the trip but Kristen wouldn't let them. It's time to leave for the trip. And Dylan's mom is coming. This was the time for Dylan to get the guy that she wanted. Massie is teaching girls how to kiss. But some of the girls are going overboard about it. Claire helps Massie with kissing only if Massie helps Claire get Cam back. Massie helps Claire get Cam back. By dressing Claire up in Kristen's soccer clothes. Claire sneaks in the ...more

Kristin is poor now, what a good news...no it's not.

My favorite PC member is Claire. She's smart, sweet, and beautiful. Massie is next, she's clever, definitely, and she COULD be sweet if she WANTS to. But she's mean...Alicia is good, pretty girl, with an evil heart. Dylan, Kristin, I dunno them much.

Massie, you don't HAVE to pretend to be a great lip-kissing master. You are like, what, only 12? It DOESN'T matter? You know what'll really earn you respect from people? Knowledge. Yeah, that's r

This book is awesome! I think it's one of the best "Clique" books written! The main characters in this book are Massie, Claire, Kristen, Dylan, and Alicia. They all go to the same school, and their school is going to go on a camping trip with another school(Massie's school is all girls, the other school is all boys). Once they get there, though, they realize 3 days with boys can have pros and cons. To find out what happens on the trip, you need to read The Pretty Committee Strikes Back by Lisi H ...more

The book, "The Pretty Committe Strikes Back", I found it one of the better books so far out fo The Clique series. I recommend to read from the begining on because otherwise you won't get the story. Massie is basically well she is a main character. She is the popular one and the one that controls everything. Although she can be nice I prefer Claire myself.

Essentially, the girls and the guys get sent on a 3-day class trip into the middle of the wilderness, with no parents and very little supervision. Then the romance heats up (in the 7th-grader way).

I LOVED IT!!! Such a cute lil read about first crushes, new romance, and popularity :)

What I learned from this book is to always follow your heart. Sometimes your friends. And always your teachers, so you don't get in trouble.

In the Pretty Committee Strikes Back, there are two characters, Massie and Claire. Massie, leader of the Pretty Committee, cares about what name brand you are wearing and how skinny you are. Claire, on the other hand, cares about your personality and puts all the physical characteristics aside. Throughout the book, the two help each other sneak around to get what they want, even though it’s against the rules. Massie is helping Claire find when and where to get her first kiss with Cam, Claire’s b ...more

The Pretty Committee Strikes Back is book #5 of Lisi Harrison's popular and controversial The Clique, detailing the adventures of the eponymous clique at Westchester, New York's exclusive and all-girls Octavian Country Day School. At this point, the series becomes barely tolerable for even the most tolerant - every character is diminished and the plot degenerates into stacked cliches and nonsense.

Plot: Massie Block and her "Pretty Committee" go on a school field trip to a local lake. While there

I just love the feeling getting lost in the book, like I was part of the whirlwind adventure of drama of the book. Like always, this got me hooked!
I just love how there's a different drama in every book. It wasn't repetitive, prosaic or dull. There's drama in every page. You'd just love how these girls get themselves in troubles and learning throughout the way. (Hopefully!)

Now, on the book!

So this book starts off with three-day trip to Lake Placid with the Briarwood Boys and OCD girls. The last

The Pretty Committee Strikes Back by Lisi Harrison this book is intended for ages 12 and up the main issue to me of this book addresses is Massie and her M.U.C.K girls. And when Massie is at camp with Derrington and they fight or Clair and Alicia fight. the setting for this book I think is essencial for the story because if they were in a swamp lets say I know Massie would be an absolute mess. So since they are at a camp it was helpful with them getting lost and becoming friends again, aslo with ...more

This book is about when Alicia. Dylan, Claire, and Massie go on a school trip while Kristen is stuck at home. But this is not just any school trip they get to stay overnight for a little bit and a little far away is the boy cabin. Everyone is so excited. There is bond to some drama on this trip. Will people break up or get closer. I like this because this book because it is very dramatic and I really enjoy reading this series.

Basically the plot in this book is, TPC finds out their school is going on a school trip to Lake Placid with their brother school Briarwood. TPC is really excited, they go shopping for new outfits, have meetings about what they are going to talk about with the boys. At Lake Placid the girls really find out a lot about their crushes and things don’t quite go as they had planned. The theme of this book w ...more

If you'd like girly, dramatic read, this is the book for you! It is chock full of sassiness, backstabbing, and deciet. In my opinion, it was a little too immature for my taste but it made for an easy read. Also, this book is supposed to be relatable to highschool life but these made up clubs like "pc" (pretty committee) and M.U.C.K. (Massie's Underground Clinic for Kissing), were a little too unbelivable. This book starts off with Massie, Kristen, Dylan, Alicia, Claire and the Octavian Country S ...more

The book opens with Massie and the rest of the Pretty Committee in geography class at OCD. Mr. Myner, the eccentric teacher, is blabbering on about topography, a topic that captures the interests of few. Massie zones out, and starts thinking about Derrick Harrington, the alpha and popular star goalie for the Tomahawks, the Briarwood Academy soccer team. But when Mr. Myners mentions the upcoming trip to Lake Placid, everyone's attention is now in his hands. Despite his attempts to say that they w ...more
