Invasion of the Boy Snatchers (The Clique, #4) by Lisi HarrisonSeriously? This book, actually this series, makes me want to either a.) vomit or b.) gouge my eyes out with a very pointy fork.
First, what the hell is the point to this book? Is it Im twelve years old and I run the school; if you dont listen to me, Ill ruin your life? Or is it I dont like her - lets destroy her life? Seriously? I WAS a twelve year. I know no one, who acted like that. Sure, there were bitches; but seriously?
Second, the way Massie puts everyone down is really annoying. I want to smack some sense into her. She puts even her friends down, and thats just sad. There arent any redeeming qualities about her.
Third, the writing sucks. Im not sure if it was the way the girls acted or if it was the writing that made me want to gouge my eyes out.
The only redeeming thing to come out of this book is Claire, who still has some of her old personbalty and her friend Layne, but she still doesnt save the book.

The Book of Invasions , which was rewritten and "purified" by brother Michael O'Clery, gives us in a few brief lines an epitome of our history as recorded by the ancient chroniclers of Erinn:—. It may startle some of our readers to find any mention of Irish history "before the Flood," but we think the burden of proof, to use a logical term, lies rather with those who doubt the possibility, than with those who accept as tradition, and as possibly true, the statements which have been transmitted for centuries by careful hands.
The first person to come to Ireland was called Ceasair. Her story begins back in Egypt, when Noah was building his Ark. Noah allowed three of his sons onto the Ark, but refused to give space to another son, Bith, because he thought Bith was a thief. Ceasair had built a three arks for herself, and had taken an idol for a god. She crewed each of her arks with fifty skilled women, but the only men she took, aside from her father, were her brother, Ladra the pilot, and her husband, Fintan Mac Bochra.
