The Clique Summer Collection: Massie

In the beginning Massie is at summer camp at Galwaugh Farms, an exclusive horseback riding camp. She got kicked out when she cheated in a competition. Her parents cut her off of her credit cards until she could pay them back. She decided to be a cosmetic consultant for Be Pretty Cosmetics. If you become a high seller you get a purple streak and you never have to wait on any line again. She becomes a really good sales person and Anastasia Brees believes in true beauty. When she finds out the way Massie was selling the cosmetics she got really mad. Massie was telling everyone what was wrong with them so they could buy her products. In the end Massie paid off her debit to her parents and got her purple streak.

The main character of this book was Massie Block, I think that she is a really big brat. She gets whatever she wants when ever she wants and if she doesn't get it there is a huge problem. She always gets what she wants in the end.

Something that I really liked about this book was how she got what she wanted by working hard for it. I didn't like how she insulted people about their flaws just so she could get the purple streak. I also hate how she pretends to use all Be Pretty products when she doesn't use any.

One reading strategy that I used was that I made a connection to the book Bratfest at Tiffany's. on the first day of school in that book Massie talks about her summer and her purple streak. Another strategy that I used was that I made a prediction that she would get what she wanted, the purple streak, and I was right.
