Book review #41 Airhead by Meg Cabot Rating: Four stars (refer to the rating system on the right)
Summary: (taken from inside flap) Emerson Watts didn't even want to go the new SoHo Strk Megastore grand opening. But someone needed to look out for her sister, Frida, whose crush, British heart-throb 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 bizarre accident later, and Em Watts, always the tomboy, never the party princess, is no longer herself. Literally.
Now getting her best friend, Christoper, 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...
I can't believe I haven't started this series earlier! I really enjoyed myself. I was surprised at how unique and fun this one was. Reading the summary I got very intrigued...I like how too much of the book wasn't given away. I'm going to have to be really careful to not give anything away to make sure I don't ruin the book.
Emerson Watts, Em for short, is your average girl. She isn't really popular; she spends a lot of time playing video games and hanging out with her best friend Christopher. She's definitely not one of the girls who spends all their time obsessed with the latest fads or celebrities. But she's forced to accompany her sister to this huge store opening to meet her favorite singer. Little did she know that would be the last thing she remembered a month from then. After a huge catastrophe Em finds herself at the hospital, not really feeling like herself. Her life is about to completely change in more than one way...
All of the characters were so real, they were probably my favorite part about this book. I think it's almost impossible not to love Em. She's a character that most of you would be friends with or know in real life. Her take on life was hilarious! I loved seeing the world through her eyes. And better yet she was smart and thoughtful. At first, just like Em, I didn't like many of the new people that emerged in her new life, but in the end they were all part of the gang.
Airhead reminded me how much I love Meg Cabot's writing. The writing really sucked me in. It's the type of book where you get completely lost in. I sat down to do some light reading before dinner and looked up realizing that hours had passed. I laughed and smiled countless times. What can I say...I had a blast!
At first I wasn't too sure about this book, but as you can tell I'm extremely pleased with it. It had just the right concoction of fluff and seriousness. The plot is really extraordinary. Sorry for the vague review, it's best to read this one knowing as little as possible. I'm so excited to see what happens in the next book. I definitely recommend this one, I have a feeling you'll love it :)
I'm a seventeen year old Muslim girl living in Kentucky. Coming from a huge family, I tend to be a bit shy, but never afraid to speak my mind. Growing up without a TV in the house, I willingly turned to books. Ever since I've been a proud book-aholic. Since I love reading I decided to write a review on every book I read (mostly YA fiction) from here on out to share my thoughts and opinions. I love comments and am open to any book suggestions :)
