Mother and Father
Len and Nadia Rivera
Alicia is the daughter of Len Rivera and Nadia Rivera. She is known as an exotic beauty, because of her dark hair, tan skin and big boobs. In early books (Revenge of the Wannabes) she tries to make a clique like Massie's, but ends up almost losing her true friends. Almost every Briarwood boy wants to date Alicia and her tag-along friend Olivia Ryan.
The SeriesDylan, Kristen, and Claire all team up and go against Alicia and Olivia. They clearly get more hits than Alicia. So, in a desperate attempt, she cheats and switches the PC's ballots to hers. Massie finds out that she did this but doesn't say anything to Alicia. She decides she'll lay low and strike later. In the end, the PC (now featuring Claire to replace Alicia) confronts the principal and tells of Alicia's act of cheating and convinces her not to go uniform so they don't have to wear Alicia's Ralph Lauren outfits. Strawberry, to replace Dylan, and Kori Gedman to play the role of Kristen. Alicia is "Massie" and Olivia is the "Alicia" to Alicia's Massie. She also manages to secure a Teen People modeling contract for their holiday edition, but all fails when Massie plans to crash Alicia's modeling party and does so. They make amends, and Alicia falls back into the Pretty Committee's hold, ditching Kori and Strawberry but still staying friends with Olivia. Also, Alicia tries to set up Cam and Claire, who like each other, but Massie also likes Cam at the time and gets in the way. Alicia starts to like Cam's older brother Harris and tries to make him like her back by getting him free tickets to the Strokes concert. Harris already has another girl he's taking to the concert, though, and Alicia realizes she'll never have a shot at Harris, who is four years older than her.
After a long vacation in Spain, Alicia returns home with her cousin, Nina. Massie Block has seen all of the pictures of Nina and makes her an LBR. Once Nina arrives she changes her look to a beautiful person from Spain. She goes to OCD, but not in the PC. OCD worships Nina even more than they do to Massie. She turns out to be a stealer and not only steals things from most of the girls at OCD, but she steals the Clique's crushes. In a sub-plot, Alicia ends up doing something about her crush, new student Josh Hotz. At the end, Alicia humiliates Nina and sends her back to Spain. Claire kisses Josh by accident, but Alicia does not know and still likes Josh. But there is a kick to all of this.
The girls head off to a camping trip with the boys of Briarwood. Alicia finds out Claire kissed Josh (her crush), and she gives Claire a taste of her own medicine by not giving Cam Claire's "Change of Plans" note and trying to kiss a "stood up" Cam.
At the end, the girls get expelled from school because they ran away from Dylan's mother and Mr. Myner, the chaperones of the trip.
Alicia, Massie, and Claire go to Hollywood in hopes of winning a role in the movie "Dial L for Loser." But when Claire starts getting the spotlight, Alicia and Massie become amateur reporters on behalf of the Daily Grind and plan to expose Claire.
They lie and trash her bathroom with stuff such as tampons and athlete's foot cream. They claimed that Claire had body and beauty issues. After that, they are invited to her co-star's house and end up on the cover of US Weekly.
They then find out that he was just getting embarrasing pictures of them (Alicia with a booger and Massie picking a wedgie.) Later, they all make up in the hotel room, bonding over the free clothes given to Claire. When they return home there are cutouts of Alicia and Massie made from the girls of OCD.
When they all return, Claire is the idol of OCD because of her new movie which makes Massie mad and she kicks Claire out of the PC. Massie and The Pretty Committee must find a key to obtain the most glamorous clubhouse but unlike any other year, the 8th Grade alpha Skye decides to twist things around and make it a race by giving this message to more than one committee.
Alicia tries to help Massie obtain the key by getting a list of the boys that Skye has kissed, but when Claire finds it first under Layne's older brother Chris's bed, Massie must let Claire back in to the Pretty Committee, but, Lanye has to join the sleepover.
The girls at first don't understand what's so good about the room, but then they find the TV that shows the boys in their ESP class. They even ditch class to escape to the room. At first, Alicia is bothered by Josh's freakishly clean room, but starts developing a relationship with Josh after she finds out that his sister was doing all the cleaning. In the end of the book, Alicia is the only one with a legitimate date to Skye's party.
Alicia goes to Spain expecting to hang with Nina's older twin sisters, but they ditch her and become GR girls. Alicia accidently runs into a statue that Spain treasures and finds herself having to pay off the bill working with her least favorite cousin, Nina. A boy keeps asking to talk to her and being very annoying! She keeps ignoring. Nina is mean a few times, but at the end Alicia and Nina become friends; and she realizes who the annoying guy was, and they fall in love.
When Alicia sees her crush Josh Hotz, she is reluctant to hang out with him due to the fact that she swore to swear off boys in the 8th Grade. She can't resist the temptation any more and starts seeing him secretly.When Massie finds out Alicia is dating Josh, she is kicked out of the Pretty Committee and decides to make her own committee of replacements only this time she's Massie, Olivia (is her), Strawberry (Dylan), and Kori (Kristen). At the end of the book, she rejoins the Pretty Committee.
Massie forms a cheerleading squad called The Socc-Hers for soccer so she can "stalk" her crush, Dempsey. Alicia is thrilled, but not for long. She tries to make Massie listen to her about cheer routines, since she is a dancer and knows more about it than Massie, but Massie, used to always being on top, does not listen. She creates her own cheerleading squad, the Heart Nets.
Near the end of the book. Massie finds out and Alicia gets kicked out of the Socc-Hers (which later fails) and the Pretty Committee. Alicia tries to explain to Massie that she's only trying to be The Alpha in dance and not in reality. Massie, on the other hand, won't take it and leaves.
Alicia is sick and tired of Massie's controlling ways and quits the Pretty Committee. In the beginning of the book, Principal Burns has announced the Briarwood School reopening, leaving the Heart-Nets (the cheerleading squad that Alicia made in the ending of the last book) with no purpose. So, she plans to make a new group, something thats never been done, a boy-girl Clique, containing her, Dylan, Kristen, Claire, Derrick Harrington (Dylan's new crush/boyfriend), Cam, Josh and Dempsey called The Soul M8s.
Even though Massie's new group, MAC, is beating her, she plans group activities with them, that fails. She plans a dinner party for the Soul-M8s, which ultimately fails when they leave for Massie's charity. In the end, the Pretty Commitee reforms in the store of Massie's new crush, Landon Crane, whose mom made "Bark Jacobs."
These Boots are Made For Stalking
Alicia does not like Josh once she realizes they were the same clothing size, so she 'upgrades' to a ninth grader.
Alicia is not allowed to shop between Thanksgiving and Christmas if she wants to go to the Spanish Rivera. She also never leaves Massie's side.
Alicia gets her fortune told by Hermia, the woman who predicted the Pretty Committee would come together in the first place. She finds out she will be alpha of the Pretty Committee soon and gets scared, trying not to take lead in anything, since the new Alicia is a BFL (Beta for LIfe).
At the end, Massie moves to England and Alicia is alpha of the Pretty Committee, though she says Massie could move to the moon and she'd still be Westchester's alpha and the first person Alicia would try to impress. She also starts tapdancing even more.
Alicia is both pretty and mean, just like Massie. She loves to gossip, and is usually leading in gossip points. Adults love her "sweet" personality, and she's a flirt around boys. It is shown that Alicia wants to be a reporter when she grows up, though she is pretty enough for modeling. Alicia also knows a lot about law because her father is a famous and wealthy lawyer. She's also sneaky and "Alicias" her way into things. Her dream is to win Massie's throne one day and rule the Pretty Committee, although this changes after she discovers that being alpha is hard in Boys R Us. One of Alicia's hobbies is to dance at Body Alive Dance Studio Squad (also known as B.A.D.S.S.)
Alicia Rivera's family is the wealthiest of the whole Pretty Committee and has the largest house. She is Spanish and Caucasian. Her dad, Len Rivera is a lawyer and her mom is former Spanish model Nadia Rivera. Her maternal cousins live in Spain and consist of Nina, Celia & Isobel.
Massie has been known to make fun of Alicia and call her "Fannish", or fake Spanish (although that doesn't make sense because Alicia is still half Spanish) because of Len changing his last name "Rivers" to "Rivera" so that Nadia's parents would bless their marriage.

Her long hair is usually wavy or straight and is said at first to be "dark and glossy". In many of the first books, Alicia has been described as having black hair, but in My Little Phony, her hair is described as brown. Also in the film, Alicia is portrayed as a brunette.

Harris Fisher, Claire's crush's older brother in the third book, was staring at her huge boobs, directly at them. She doesn't want her boobs, and once offered her friend Olivia them. Almost everyone she meets ends up staring at them, and when she feels self-conscious, she often crosses her arms.
