* DawsonCasting: The girls on the cover of the books are ''clearly'' not 7th/8th graders.
** Let alone the movie. [[GoodLuckCharlie Bridgit Mendler]], [[HowToRock Samantha Boscarino]], [[SwitchedAtBirth Vanessa Marano]] and [[{{Victorious}} Elizabeth Gillies]] had ''clearly'' outgrown the middle school-aged roles even by then.



* UnintentionalPeriodPiece : Due to the numerous pop culture references.
* UnlimitedWardrobe: And how! The reason Massie initially doesn't want to date Derrington is because of his obsession with shorts in all seasons.

[[spoiler:It's eventually revealed that the reason Derrington wore shorts all the time was because he lost a bet and the loser had to wear shorts all the time, no matter what. Eventually, he loses another bet and has to wear his clothes backwards all the time for a certain period of time.]]

''The Clique'', a series of [[YoungAdultLiterature middle-school novels]] by Lisi Harrison, revolves around the lives of the Pretty Committee: [[AlphaBitch Massie Block]], [[PluckyGirl Claire Lyons]], [[BigEater Dylan Marvil]], [[TheSociapath Alicia Rivera]], and [[TomboyWithAGirlyStreak Kristen Gregory]]. These spoiled seventh-graders (later eighth-graders) consider themselves the experts of fashions of Octavian Country Day School, and aren't afraid to let other students know what they think of them. In a nutshell, a series in which the AlphaBitch and her GirlPosse are the protagonists.
