Feeling left out? Who decides who gets to be part of a clique and who doesn't, anyway? Maybe you have a group of friends that you like to hang out with. But how often do you invite others to hang out with you? Are you open to including new friends and new ideas? Could your group of friends be a clique?

As long as there have been girls in schools, there have been cliques — a particularly malicious and subtle form of bullying that isn't always recognized for what it is. And with the growing role of social media, their mean-spirited goals have only become easier to achieve.

Cliques: Deal with It Using What You Have Inside offers young readers up-to-date discussions about: distinguishing groups from cliques, inclusion/exclusion, gossip, cyber-bullying, self esteem, and peer pressure. The book directly addresses the problem of cliques, and provides many practical tips on how to identify, confront, and overcome it. Quizzes, comics, and graphic novel-style illustration help make this book a fun and accessible way to approach the often difficult-to-address problem of cliques.

  • Cliques 101 helps you differentiate between a group and a cliques.
  • Letters to the “Conflict Counsellor” provide real-life problems and solutions.
  • Quizzes test your ability to make positive choices in any situation.
  • A resource page lists helpful organizations, books, and web sites.
The Deal With It series helps young adolescents cope with conflicts in everyday life and aims to promote peaceful homes, schools and communities.
