Summary (From Meg Cabot's website): "Things aren't pretty for Emerson Watts"
There's no escape
When everyone is watching you.
Emerson Watts was pretty sure there couldn't be anything worse than being a straight A student whose brain had been transplanted into the body of a teenage supermodel.
But it turned out she was wrong.
Because that supermodel could turn out to have a mother who's mysteriously gone missing, a brother who's shown up on her doorstep demanding answers, ex-boyfriends crawling out of the woodwork who want more than just a photo op, and a British heartthrob who's written a song about her that's topping the charts.
How can Em balance all that with school, lingerie runway shows, and weekend jaunts to St. John—especially when she's got final exams; a sister who is headed to the high school cheerleading championships; a former best friend, Christopher, who's intent on destroying Stark
Enterprises to avenge the death of his lost love; and a company she represents that seems to be turning to the dark side...
But then, nobody said it was going to be easy, being Nikki.
Wdebo's Review: Woohoo, I was so happy when I got this book. I totally worshipped and adored Airhead. Em is totally real, but now she's getting a little supermodel-y. I guess that's what she gets from being in Nikki's body for too long. The last turn of events in the end totally made me want to read the sequal (or as all the other reviewers call it the "promised sequal".)
Pro: Come on it's Meg Cabot you know exactly what I am going to say for the "pros" her writing is so great it can turn any book hating teen to love YA books. Her writing is sarcastical (so are her characters), it's just adorably/cliche-ly funny and just the sweetest thing you read. (Except for the ending which totally made me angry because now I REALLY need to read the sequal).
Con: The ending makes me need to read the sequal!! [I can't stand not knowing what happens]. Also, the only reason I liked the beginning was because I was excited to find out what was going to happen I didn't think it was as good as Airhead in the beginning but it did get better!
Favorite Character: Chris-need I say more, cute and geeky, my kind of guy lol. He is just so loving of Em (as you find out in the story). He just raised my BF standard more. Yes, I am a Fictional boy lover and I'm damn proud of it!
All in all, if you loved Airhead get ready to go out bright and early tomorrow to buy it, u won't be disappointed!!
