About the Book

Cliques can make you sick. If you’re on the outside, you’re treated like dirt. And if you’re on the inside, you have to follow the rules. Who needs more rules at school? Written for every kid who has ever felt excluded or trapped by a clique, this book blends humor with practical advice as it tackles a serious subject. We start by explaining what cliques are and why they exist: because everyone wants to have friends. Then we reveal why some cliques are so annoying—and often full of phonies. And we share the secret to being popular: just be yourself! As readers smile at the cartoons and laugh at the jokes, they’ll also be learning skills they need to make and keep friends—real friends, not people who pretend to be cool. They’ll discover that some supposedly “popular” kids are lonely and miserable inside. And they’ll pick up important self-esteem tips that will help them feel good about themselves (because there’s no need to let a bad clique spoil a perfectly good day).
