The Clique Summer Collection: Alicia, by Lisi Harrison, is about how one of the Pretty Committee Girls, Alicia, spends her summer. Since it is summer vacation, Alicia has gone to Spain to visit her cousins. Her two older cousins seem nice, but everyone knows that the younger cousin, Nina, is a stealer. In Spain, she finds out that a search is going on to find the most beautiful Spanish girl that will get to star in a music video with the famous I! and she thinks that she is it. So when her two older cousins turn out to be working for I! and decide to take her to a special party for I!, she thinks that it’s her chance to show that she is perfect to star in the music video. But at the party her older cousins ditch her, and she is left with Nina. While talking to Nina, Alicia notices that her cousin is wearing her earrings! They get into a fight and break a statue that costs thousands of dollars. There is only one way to pay it back, and that is to work at the hotel. But hotel work takes up all of Alicia’s time. Will Alicia get to star in the music video? Will she even get to audition for the music video? Read the book to find out!

I would recommend this book to anyone that likes a quick read with a lot of backstabbing. It’s a really short book, so it won’t take that long to read. Plus, you never know what will happen next, since everyone is willing to do whatever it takes to make themselves look good and the other people bad. There are a whole bunch of twists in the book. You’ll be amazed at how the story turns out, because it’s something that you would never expect. This book is a great read for the summer!
