Today's book is...
Runaway (Airhead #3) By: Meg Cabot
Summary (From author's site):
Where can you hide
When everyone knows your name?
Em Watts is a prisoner: Brandon Stark, heir to the Stark corporation family fortune, is holding her captive.
Em Watts is a liar: She's told all her friends she loves Brandon, and that everything is fine.
Em Watts is scared to death: She really doesn't know how she's going to get out of this one.
She's still in shock over the fact that the girl whose life she was forced to take over when her brain was transplanted into her body is alive—alive and furious with her for stealing what she claims was rightfully hers...
...including Brandon Stark, who's intent on finding out what that girl's secret was, and using it to get revenge on his father.
But that's not all Brandon wants…he wants Em. And not just to use her to trick Nikki into revealing that secret, and helping him secure his place as head of Stark Enterprises once and for all.
But Brandon's not the only one who wants something from Em. Christopher wants to use her to hurt Brandon…for taking her away from him, and to destroy Stark Enterprises.
Em Watts is tired: She's tired of being used. Tired of being lied to. Tired of being told who she can and cannot love. Tired of the lies she's being forced to live.
With everyone she loves furious with her for things she can't explain, Em's reached the end of her rope...what's the point of even going on?
But when she discovers the truth about Nikki's secret, she knows there's only one person she can turn to.
Will Christopher be able to put aside his personal feelings and help her expose her employer to the world? Is it even fair to get Christopher involved — since if he agrees, there's every chance that Stark Enterprises will try to have them both killed—this time, permanently?
Maybe it would be better for Em to just keep on running...
Why I Want to Read This: As a giant Meg Cabot/Airhead fan, I seriously CANNOT wait for Runaway...I want to read it right now. I read the exerpt...and OMG, can you say amazing??!! I really want to see Christopher and Em get together, he finally found out in the second book (why are guys so stupid? I mean she basically told him in the end of the last book, and it took him till the end of the second one to figure out. Why are guys so dense?) that it was her, except Christopher is getting a little crazy, and he seems to be using Em more then loving her...I have a nasty feeling, something bad is going to happen.
