Honestly best book of the series. It was great to watch everyone grow up and make changes for themselves I really wish there could of been after books following massie in her life because she is by far my favorite character. So I guess thanks Lisi for spending your time making these amazing books and clique was the best series I have read so far.

You know, it may be a bit embarrassing that I still read these books all these years later, but there’s just something about them that make me feel good. I never did read the last book because I never wanted it to end. Well, I finally read it and now I’m sad! It ended great but I would not be upset if Lisi ever wrote more books with them as adults. Or maybe even picking up from high school! I already miss all the girls.

Okay, okay, I know by the title ALONE this sounds like a cheap thrill, and that's exactly what it is....
or is it?
The whole Clique series was my escapist literature, filled with the petty antics of preteen girls, and makes me thankful everyday that I am no longer at that age, yet at the same time makes me miss it. Harrison makes the dialogue shallow and yet poignant, something that makes the books that much more interesting and entertaining. The whole series revolves around fashionista Massie and

Did anyone else break down crying? I couldn't help it, I've loved this series for years. Farewell to the girls who changed my life.

I feel like these books are a part of me. They helped me survive my first few years of middle school. They changed me somehow. These five girls became my favorite book characters, they became my friends.

Massie taught me to be loyal to your friends, that's the only way you'll gain their trust.

Alicia taught me that despite your flaws, you can still be beautiful.

I didn't know this was the last book of the series until I read the author's note. I found that disappointing, since I was hoping it would be like Toy Story where the characters grow up with you, so to speak.

I liked the ending, though I think the next book would have been soooo much more ah-mazing than the others if it continued from the ending point.

I think in the end, my favorite Clique Girl was Massie. She always tried so hard to fix everything and everyone, never gave up on what she wanted

I'm not going to lie. This book made me sad! The Clique is a series that has stuck with me since I read it at 14, and now, 11 years later, I still enjoy it, and I'm sad to see it end! I love Massie, I love The Pretty Committee, and I loved escaping into this rich, high fashion world. It was fun!

I still think there should have been one more book in this series, BUT, I wish there were two books added. How does that make sense? Well, I would have completely cut Dial L for Loser out of the series. I

So sad! I cried a lot reading this. I literally grew up reading these. It sounds silly, but I started reading the first one in 5th grade when Massie, Kristen, Dylan, Alicia and Claire all seemed like these AMAZING people. I looked up to them. But as I grew up...they didn't and they just seemed like little kids to me. However, I loyally kept reading until the end of the series. I finished this in two days, and I wish it had taken me longer. I will truly, honestly, with everything in me, miss read ...more

Seven years ago, I thought I had quit The Clique series cold turkey and could go on living without knowing how Massie "I'm so rich" Block's story ended. little did I know that I had just 3 installments and half a year from being able to finish it.

I've quit series before and I'll do it again. But 3 books was such a low demand of my time that I figured I could give Massie and her Pretty Committee one more chance to "wow" me. They did

In the beginning of this book Massie's father lost his job and Massie was middle-class for a while. She kept the secret from and suffered weeks if no shopping, eating good food, or having stong heat in her house. While Massie was middle-class, all her friends were doing their own business and didn't have time to hang out with her. Her dad finally gets a new job and they are rich again but, he announces that they have to movie to London. When she breaks the news to her friends, they were extremel ...more

I'm kind of embarrassed that I continued to read this series, but there was something almost charming about it. The last few books have been less than stellar, and I really didn't think I would care when it finally ended.

This last book ended very well, and I was surprised at how much I liked reading it. All the characters seem to have grown up and are moving on from each other. The ending was surprising, and I liked that she left it sort of up in the air.

I forgot how many pop-culture references

it was an ah-mazing way to end the series that way. i'll admitt that i am a big fan of lisi harrison and the clique series, but in the end, we all have to move on. i've been with this series since day 1 and i'm sad to see it end so suddenly, but it turns out that the pc learned a couple of things in this book that they never had before and now they're realizing it.

The final book in the Clique Series, “A Tale of Two Pretties” might as well have been called “The Final Occurrences That Brought Massie, Dylan, Alicia, Kristen and Claire to Mature”. Considering this is the final episode of the series, Ms. Lisi Harrison's conscious choice is at times cliché, but most definitely welcome.

Readers alike will without a doubt be on edge and mentally debate over how each member of the Pretty Committee member will face arduous challenges; challenges that both meet thei

Personal Response:
I was entertained while reading this book, by Lisi Harrison. I admired her use of character point of view. The author created five unique and diverse characters and mentioned each of their views to a situation. I would be interested in reading other stories by this author, because I was fond of this book.

In Westchester, New York, five alpha girls dominate their middle school. Massie, Dylan, Alisha, Kristen, and Claire are on the top of the popularity roster. Throughout th

In the book, A Tale of Two Pretties, everything is wild for the Pretty Committee. Alicia has her own dance troupe, Kristen has been excepted to the Soccer Sisters, Claire has a photography class with her boyfriend Cam, Dylan went to the Caribbean with her family, and now the Marvils have their own reality show, the Marvelous Marvils. But Massie's parents have a surprise for her after her dad loses his job because of the economy. She has to move "across the pond" to a much bigger house. At first, ...more

Well, I dont exactly know how to write but I'm certain that I'm happy with the way Lisi Harrison ended the PC. It was actully sort of touching in away and had a great ending. I felt like the book was just dragging on and on. The middle and beginning were just dull and I only really started to get intrested in what was up with the clique in the last 60 pages or so. Over all a good book and a great way to end the PC and the series. It reminds me why I read these shallow books, because of the heart ...more

A Tale Of Two Pretties, the grand finale of the Clique series and Lisi Harrison's ehma-ah-mazing masterpiece!
Secrets, secrets and more secrets. Nobody wants Massie to leave, including herself. At the end of this whole book The PC teaches you, that you can't hold onto the past, there's always a time in your life when you have to make a big change. Another lifelong lesson is that, what goes up, must come down; Massie can't have the glory of and Alpha forever. This book really changes your point of

This was probably the best book in the series, given the plot was a little foolish (but it always is) and a little boring at spots. But it was enjoyable to read as it was the end of the series. I really liked the last line about the perfect memory, because it shows that even if they were silly and fought and did a lot of stupid things, they really were friends. The epilogue was good because it shows us that life goes on, and though we won't reading about the Pretty Committee's adventures and mis ...more
