SUMMARY- In the second book starring Westchester County's most privleged middles schoolers, the Clique declares Massie a hero for hosting the first boy/girl Halloween party of the 8th grade. Massie's already hired Landon Dorsey, the hottest party planner in the 9-1-4 area code, but her parents insist she has to invite the entire class. Unfortunatley that means everyone. Layne is bummed that the boys will be there -- she IMs Claire that's so "DESPR8" -- as Claire wonders if maybe a boyfriend will make her happy. Meanwhile, Massie and the Clique are fighting over who gets to invite Derek Herrington. Dylan thought it was obvious that she was the one who danced all night with Derek at the OOCD benefit last month, but says "Whatevs" when Kristen gets all wierd about it. Fine, she can have him. He was a terriable dancer anyway and there will be tons of guys to choose from at the party.... Recommended: Age, 11-14. For fans of, The Clique, The Uglies, and many other pre-teen girl books.
