Nyxen's Review of "Airhead"

Airhead by Meg Cabot
337 Pages
Point 2008


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 princes, 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 problem.

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...



Now I can say I've read a Meg Cabot novel. I can't believe I've never read one of her books until now. But I'm glad I read Airehead.

Airhead is an intriguing novel with all types of elements. Em Watts is just a regular girl who is just realizing that she may be in love with her best friend. The only problem is he doesn't know she exists. Literally. After an accident at a Grand Opening, Em suddenly wakes up to find herself in a model's body. Now she has to juggle three guys, not including her best friend, a modeling career, and school.

When I first read it, I was confused. I never realized that a medical procedure would be used in this novel. I was shocked when I learned of the brain transplant. Then it got me thinking. How would I feel if I was trapped in another body, let alone a model's body? I honestly don't know but I'm glad that I read about Em's experience. Cabot has a way with words. She knows what she's doing and she does a heck of a job.

Airhead is a brilliantly written novel with so many great deatails and descriptions that you feel as if you're actually in the book. She writes about mystery, - the fact that Em can't tell anyone what has happened - love and friendship. I reccommend this book to anyone even if you're not fond of anything medical. You get a new experience with this book.

I rate this Five Stars.
