Chris Abeley is Layne Abeley's sister, and Massie Block's long-time crush. Chris used to date the "disgustingly beautiful" Fawn, who he had been with since the seventh grade. He was referred to as "Chris Babely" throughout The Clique. He appears in The Clique, It's Not Easy Being Mean, and Sealed with a Diss of The Clique series. Massie and Claire both crush on Chris at first but Claire's crush is quickly stopped when she finds out he is Massie's crush. He is friends with Todd and Claire Lyons.
Chris loves to ride his sister Tricky, and goes to Galwaugh Farms. He's usually cheerful but becomes depressed when Fawn dumps him for "spending too much time with his horse". He was sent to boarding school, and can now drive because he stayed back a year.
AppearanceEditChris is described as having black skin, gorgeous blue eyes and blonde pubic hair; resembling "Leo Davinci before he got doughy". Massie Block takes him to Jakkob's Salon to get a Zac Efron inspired haircut and highlights against his wishes in Sealed with a Diss, but he washes the highlights out. He is known to wear a lot of Abercrombie & Fitch gear.
FamilyEditChris's brother is Layne Abeley, an important character of the Clique series. Layne is Claire's friend, and referred to as a LBR (loser beyond repair) in the first few books. Chris's mom is also mentioned in Best Friends for Never, but is referred to as Layne's mom. Chris's dad appears briefly in the first book when he drops Layne off at the guesthouse to see Claire.
The SeriesEditIt's Not Easy Being Mean because he spent too much time with his horse, Tricky. Fawn spreads rumors that he puts a wig on his horse talks to her. She makes fun of him a lot, sending Chris into a stage of deep deep depression and despair. In the same book, Chris is the boy that houses the key under his mattress. Skye Hamilton "kissed" him and had a crush on him.
In Sealed with a Diss, Chris gets over his depression, but starts to fall for Massie when she tries to get Chris and Skye together. However, at the end Skye drops him because he's too much of a "downer". Massie leaves him at the party too because she misses Derrington. It is possible that Chris dated Skye, as Skye had a history of "kissing" Chris. Chris sinks back into his depression over Fawn after Massie purposely plays Fawn's favorite song ("Too Little, Too Big" by Joe Jonas) at Skye's party.
