Airhead by Meg Cabot

Summary:

No one cares what’s inside.


EM WATTS IS GONE.

Emerson Watts didn’t even want to go to the new SoHo Stark Megastore grand opening. But someone needed to look out for her sister Frida, whose crush, British heartthrob Gabriel Luna, would be singing and signing autographs there—along with the newly appointed Face of Stark, teen supermodel sensation Nikki Howard.


How was Em to know that disaster would strike, changing her—and life as she’d known it—forever? One devastating accident later, and Em Watts, always the tomboy, never the party princess, is no longer herself. Literally.
Now getting her best friend Christopher to notice that she’s actually a girl is the least of Em’s problems.
But what Em’s pretty sure she’ll never be able to accept might just turn out to be the one thing that’s going to make her dream come true….

 
NIKKI HOWARD IS HERE TO STAY

It’s what’s outside that matters.

Review:

I've probably mentioned this a hundred times before, but I'll say it again, just in cause, I absolutely LOVE Meg Cabot's books. Since her books are seriously my 'drug' of choice because once I read one, I want to read another, and so on. Airhead, of course, was no different.

I loved the premise a ton. Though, while I'm not going to say much because I don't want to spoil anything, I'll say that it's certainly is an extremely unique and interesting one that I'm really looking forward to seeing more of in the next two books. Plus, Meg's writing is the type that's easy to fall into in the way that before you know it you've read 100 pages and so on.
 
Em is a character that I liked a ton and could totally see myself being friends with if she was real. Since she was smart, funny, deep (something that I didn't think she would be because of the summary), and just someone who lived high above her outcast status. Christopher was the same way, and because of that, I'm really looking forward to seeing more of him in the future books! The one character that surprised me the most, though, was Lulu because at first glance she seems like she's going to be the typical mean girl, but that's far from the truth. Since she was an awesome friend to Em and so funny ( I ADORED the scene between her and the delivery guy; it had me laughing so hard!).

My only complaint was that Airhead had the tendency to lag at times. Though, it was a venial issue because first book series are usually that way, at times, because of build up.

In all, Airhead is a fun, fast paced, and fantastic novel! I'm really looking forward to reading Being Nikki along with Runaway!

Grade: B+

  3. Get reading Being Nikki soon!
    You're right, Meg Cabot's books are addictive! Being Nikki was kind of laggy in the middle (a bit like Airhead) but the cliffhanger made up for it 100 times! I hope you enjoy it, I can't wait for Runaway :)

  4. I've been thinking of reading the Airhead books for ages - I've only ever read one Cabot book, and it was a Mediator one that I didn't really like.

    Thanks for the great review!
