This book is #5 from the Lisi Harrison series "The Clique." This book is about Massie,Claire,Kristen,Alicia, & Dylan. The girls go to camp called "Lake Placid" except Kirsten because she can't afford to go. Since Massie likes Derrington she wants to be the first girl from her friends to get the "kissing" experience but it was too late since Claire was the first one with Josh, the boy Alicia likes. Claire kissed Josh because Cam wouldn't talk to her,as in send her e-mails and send her a pack of gummy worms. So when they were at Lake Placid, Claire taught Massie how to kiss in her MUCK (Massie's Underground Clinic for Kissing) After Claire taught Massie how to kiss, she and Cam made up & started talking again. Then Massie & Derrington got in a fight then at that very moment they made up & kissed.(This paragraph is shorten but their is more to it soo... READ THE BOOK!) Then when the girls are asleep Kristen comes because she sneaked in with the rest of the________ (Fill in the blank means:READ THE BOOK TO FIND OUT) Then Dylan's Mom & her Geometry teacher flirt together & Dylan doesn't like it so she decides to run in the woods by herself, but her friends run after her. When they were at the woods Claire remembered that their Geometry teacher said "If you run in the woods without a supervised staff you get suspended." Of course they didn't care so they stayed. While they stayed they got lost......After they noticed Massie had a compass on her necklace they found the way out & went back to the cabin. In the cabin Dylan's mom & the Geometry teacher were waiting to give them the bad news that they were all suspended.

This book is mostly mainly about Alicia's cousin Nina who flirts with boys and steals them. She steals her friends boyfriends because she wants them to be jealous and she has experience before she came from Spain. Claire and Massie HATE Nina and are there rivals. But Dylan and Kristen LOVE her because 1. She has totally cool BOOTS 2.She has experience with boys. That's why they make a bet of who kisses a guy/boy first gets 3 pairs of boots form Nina. But Nina isn't a TRUE friends because she's a total thief! Nina stole Massie's Hair Crimper and Gossip Girl Lipgloss(Cotton Candy) that arrives every morning. Kristen's Bike Lock, Her sisters shoes which are in Spain. That's why her sisters call everytime but Nina always makes an excuse so she won't talk to them. Then when Alicia announces that their is a Love Struck Dance & a Cupid Award there's a game that goes with it then, Nina tried to SNATCH Claire,Massie,and Alicia's Crushes by telling them: "To win the Cupid Award is to avoid Claire, Massie, and Alicia." "Now, they all agree to this". There is soooooo MUCH OTHER IMPORTANT things about this book but I think you should read it then do a review yourself! : )
