In the opening to the THE CLIQUE SUMMER COLLECTION series, Massie is the main character.
She gets kicked out of her ultra-exclusive horseback riding camp, and her parents force her to get a job. Massie comes up with a job as a make-up dealer for Be Pretty and does well -- in some ways.
In this short (it's only 123 pages long!) summer read, a lot happens.
This is a great start to a series that will keep us reading by the beach all summer long! So grab your frozen drink, book, and towel, and get ready to read!
When the Pretty Committee leaves seventh grade, Massie is looking forward to an ahhhmazing summer at her exclusive riding camp. But when one girl can't stay on her horse, Massie gets desparate and does something that gets her and someone else in a bit of a, well, sticky situation(literally!). When getting kicked out of camp brings her home to very disgruntled parents, Massie finds her precious Visa canceled, as well as her AmEx, and she has to wear an old dress (Ehmagawd!) to her mother's party. When her parents insist she get a summer job to pay them back for camp, and her mother's friend gives her a location, Massie has a week to find a much more glamourous job, or she's stuck at a surf rental for the summer. When she hears about Be Pretty Cosmetics and the famed purple streak, well... The motto "Truth is Beauty" starts to take over Massie's summer. For Clique fans and new fans alike, this story is sure to delight. To quote Alicia, I Heart It. Hope you do to.
