      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 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…

Main Idea: If you were like me and have burnt yourself out on dystopians, fantasy, realistic fiction, or whatever, hop on over to your local library or bookstore and give Airhead a try!

Okay, so this review may seem kind of random, considering this book came out like years ago, however, who doesn’t love some Meg Cabot?

This is actually the first Meg Cabot book I have ever read. shocker. I know. But, I’ve been so busy trying to keep up with the latest and greatest books that I have let older books fall to the side. But I’m so glad I picked this one up.

Y’all, the premise is weird. Like what actually happens is crazy! But I can’t give it all away, but basically our main character, Emerson gets knocked out and wakes up in a super famous super model’s body. Wait, what? Yep, that’s actually what happens. Before she “became” a famous super star, she was a cheerleader hating, videogame playing tomboy. So, imagine her surprise when she wakes up and realizes she has to be a supermodel for the rest of her life. That would be a shocker. So the story pretty much follows Em and crazy antics that ensue after she begins to live in someone else’s body.

To be honest… I’m not even sure what really even happens throughout the whole book. It is just a whirlwind of funny scenes, funnier scenes, and outrageous predicaments. And, it is a trilogy! So, I will definitely be picking the other two up soon.

  1. I read this one a while ago. I really liked it, though I was slightly embarrassed when my crush (who happens to be my husband now) asked me what I was reading. It was so girly and strange I was mortified to tell him!Not that that has much to do with the story itself 😛 I really loved the story, it was crazy and awesome. Emerson did drive me nuts sometimes, though.

  2.  ahhh yes it is one i definitely never took out of the room haha. Well, obviously he didn't judge you too much for it! Yes, totally agree on the story AND on Emerson. She was frustrating sometimes. But, hey, if I woke up in someone else's body, I might be too. Thanks for always commenting! We should definitely chat more sometime!

  3. Definitely! I'm always on Twitter @ARoomWithBooks 😀
