Runaway by Meg Cabot
Emerson Watts is on the run: from school, from work, from her family, from her friends, from herself.
With everyone she loves furious with her for something she can't explain, and nothing but the live Stark Angel fashion show on New Year's Eve to look forward to, 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.
If you're having any doubts about Runaway not living up to the previous two books in this superb series by Cabot, well, let me tell you, Runaway is just as addicting and fab as the previous two, if not more; leaving me to think Runaway will be a runaway hit. (haha)
Em, as well as her other wacky, adorable chums, proved to be a riot to read about, yet again. It was a blast reading Lulu's laugh-out-loud funny lines and all about the different situations the characters got themselves in to trying to figure out what Stark Enterprises was up to.
The plot, as well as the writing, kept this book at a fast pace, which allowed me to finish Runaway in less than a day. I loved all the twists and turns Meg Cabot added in to the story, and the resolution to what exactly Stark was hiding behind the sceanes. It was definitely something I didn't see coming. Plus, I loved all the different hook-ups between characters that I hoped would fall for each other in the end.
The ending was the typical and happy ending Cabot usually has at the ends of her books. Though, it didn't detract to my love of the book one bit; actually it added to it. Since, I personally tend to love those type of endings, especially when Meg's the one behind them.
In all, Runaway is a great ending to a trilogy I have come to love, and while I'm extremely sad to see it end, it left off on a great note. Plus, maybe we'll get lucky and Meg will write more. :)
Runaway will be realeased April 20, 2010.
