In the second book starring Westchester Countys most privileged middle schoolers, the Clique declares Massie a hero for hosting the first boygirl Halloween party of 8th grade. Massies 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. Unfortunately that means everyone.
Layne is bummed that the boys will be there she IMs Claire thats 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 OCD benefit last month, but says Whatevs when Kristen gets all weird about it.
Fine, she can have him. He was a terrible dancer anyway and there will be tons of guys to choose from at the party.... A bet about wardrobes between the wealthy Massie and middle-class Claire results in a testing of old friendships, a forging of new ones, and a change for the student body at Octavian Country Day School.
