Amelia and her friends really do rule. Even though these are comic books the characters are not unrealistic but they sure are funny. I laughed outloud reading Amelia and The Gym Class System. It tells the story of Amelia’s first day at her new school.

Wealthy Massie is determined to exclude middle class Claire, the daughter of her father’s old friend, from her seventh-grade clique at a very exclusive private school in Westchester, New York, but after Massie steals her only friend, Claire strikes back. Author: Lisi Harrison Series: The Clique
“The Clique” was such a great book! I read it five times! The graphic novel version was so good, I decided to read the real book! I loved “The Clique” so much! I would suggest this book to most people.
