* DudeNotFunny: To readers who have had to deal with these kind of girls in RealLife.
** The Dylan subplots have been accused of making fun of girls with eating disorders, something which many people find incredibly distasteful.
** Claire's treatment in the first few books.

* DeaderThanDisco: Seems to have become this in recent years, for several different reasons (the pop culture references aging badly, society frowning on ''anything'' bullying related, etc.). It pretty much went from a New York Times bestseller to a mainstay in second-hand stores.

* LoveItOrHateIt: It's either a GuiltyPleasure or a glorification of bullying and shallowness.

** The author's CostumePorn is described as if the Pretty Committee are in their twenties when they are much younger, which makes it feel like {{Lolicon}} and can be very off-putting.

* TheyJustDidntCare: Throughout the whole Summer Collection Series it's obvious that the books were churned out in a real hurry - in addition to the short page counts (the longest one is just over half the length of the shortest "proper" ''Clique'' novel) and the compressed publication dates (the whole collection came out over the course of Spring/Summer 2008), the series is rife if not outright pockmarked with obvious copyediting errors. That said, these (particularly ''Dylan'' and ''Kristen'') are some of the [[{{Subversion}} best books]] in the whole ''Clique'' series.
** There are various continuity and other errors throughout the whole series. In one of the books, Claire tips over a glass towards herself, but the stain ends up on Massie's dress. This happens over the course of ''consecutive paragraphs''.

* GrowingTheBeard: Starting with ''These Boots are Made for Stalking'' and ''My Little Phony''. There's more meaningful character development (particularly with Claire, Massie, and Layne and Cam[!]) compared to most of the other books and a lot of the Flanderization that was going on gets undone - in particular, the characters actually start to ''mature'' and Claire finally grows out of letting Massie remold her into yet another PC clone and tries to stand up to her. In short, the series finally becomes the series people were actually expecting/hoping for. Unfortunately, it came too little too late, in the third-to-last and second-to-last books out of a nearly two-dozen long running series.

** Alicia due to the nightmarish amounts of {{squick}} she tends to cause in most readers.
