The Clique is a sensational YA novel that should be read. The characters demonstrate what happens to teens as decisions and choices pop up in life. Sometimes we are forced into doing things we do not want to do. Our decisions have major consequences that pull us down. But then when they seems to be going for the worse we somehow manage to pull ourselves back up and out of our troubles. It may take a while but, we will eventually get there. I loved reading this story about a group of girls and how things didn’t go so perfect for them. It showed a realistic side of teens and their dramas. I enjoyed reading on and learning how one of the girls changed a lot. She went from being carefree to being a mature young adult. Her realizations and her thoughts were interesting to read. Readers will love this stunning book! Its believable, intriguing, and shows the reality of life. Plus, all the characters are easy to connect with. Fun, sassy, and absolutely enjoyable are the words I would use to describe Valerie Thomas’s plot. I definitely would recommend her novel to all readers! I rate this book a 5 out of 5 stars!
