Things aren't pretty for Emerson Watts. Em was sure there couldn't be anything worse than being a brainiac the body of a teenaged supermodel. But it turned out she was wrong. Because that supermodel could turn out to have a mother who's gone mysteriously missing, a brother who's shown up on her doorstep demanding answers, a former best friend who's intent on destroying Stark Enterprises to avenge the death of his lost love, and a British heartthrob who's written a song about her that's topping the charts. How can Em balance all that with school, runway shows, and weekend jaunts to St. Johns - especially when she's got ex-boyfriends crawling out of the woodwork who want more than just a photo op; a sister who is headed to the high school cheerleading championships; a company she represents that seems to be turning to the dark side... Not to mention trying to convince the love of her life that models aren't really airheads after all...especially one model in particular. But then, nobody said it was going to be easy being Nikki. Praise for Airhead and Meg Cabot "Cabot…dishes up all the story ingredients her fans have come to know and love - romance, humor, believable teen dialogue and even a fantastical twist…Pure fun, this first series installment will leave readers clamoring for the next." - Publisher's Weekly "Meg Cabot is chick-lit royalty." - Newsweek "The text's abundant references to current pop culture and Em's witty character keep this read both grounded and fun." - Kirkus Reviews

To see full review click here: http://yalbookbriefs.blogspot.com/ This is a very different Meg Cabot book. Perhaps it's because of the darker tone the series takes, it's not everyday your brain gets put into a different body, but it doesn't come off as light and fluffy as some of Meg's other series...
I was not expecting Brandon to end up being a "bad guy". I'm glad Christopher figured it out, even if it didn't really do them any good. And I'm still not liking Nikki.
Storyline: Nikki Howard has the life most girls can only dream about. She's a drop-dead gorgeous supermodel, living in one of Manhattan's most luxurious buildings. However, it isn't actually Nikki Howard who's enjoying it all. It's Emerson Watts. Her brain was put into Nikki's body due to an acciden...
Janina had been right: It was not nescessary at all to read Airhead first. I glided effortlessly into the story. I think I will skip the first volume altogether and will move on to Runaway as soon as the opportunity arises. I'll count setting aside the catching up on the introductory installment as...
This was better than Airhead, it really was, as all sequel books should be, they should fill in some (if not all) blanks of what you read in the first book, expand on the whole plotline and make the reader understand more of the story from the future point of perspective.I had a small feeling about ...
