This is the prequel to The Clique series. This is the book before all the girls got together. Massie was a beta, Alicia was having dance troubles, Dylan didn't feel or look fat, Kristen was just another geek of the street, and Claire was sneaking out of her house. Massie was waiting for five pieces to come together at midnight at a New Year's Yves party while trying to get away from the group she never wanted to be with. In the end it leaves you thinking on how the Pretty Committee got together.
