Airhead by Meg Cabot

Airhead by Meg Cabot

Publisher: Point (May 13, 2008)
Hardcover: 352 pages
Age Group: Young Adult

"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, who crush, British heartthrob Gabriel Luna, would be sining and signing autographs there—along with the newly appointed Face of Stark, teen super model sensation Nikki Howard.
How was Em to know that disaster would strike, changing her—and life as she'd known it—forever? One bizarre 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...."

Airhead was a little weird starting out, but even through it's weirdness it made me want to keep reading. I kept telling myself I'd go to bed on the next chapter, but every time the chapter was over, I did NOT want to stop reading it. The emotions with the characters, especially Emerson's reactions to everything that was happening to her. They are so real and they made me completely freak out. What happened was the farthest to what I thought would happen. I cried when she cried and freaked out when she did.

I've read a few of Meg Cabot's books, and so far this is the most unique one I've read. Before I was completely through the book it had already worked it's way up to my favorites list. Great job, Mrs. Cabot! I recommend Airhead to anyone who wants a good read, especially someone who hasn't read any of Mrs. Cabot's work.

Also, don't forget the sequel to this lovely novel, Being Nikki, which I have yet to read and review! I can't wait to get my hands on it.
