Being Nikki by Meg Cabot

Being NikkiWARNING, spoilers for Airhead.

When we last checked in with Em Watts, her brain had been transplanted into teen super model Nikki Howard's body and she was being forced to live Nikki's life and keep on being the face of Stark Enterprises -since Stark was what made possible the whole brain transplant thing, to begin with.

During Being Nikki, Em begins to realize that perhaps Stark is way more evil than what she had first thought, forcing her to live Nikki's life was just the tip of the iceberg. Now Nikki Howard's mother is missing; something everyone conveniently forgot to tell her and which she only found out about because Nikki's brother Steven showed up to tell her. The fact Nikki even had a brother? yeah, Stark also forgot to tell her that.

Torn between her family and Nikki's, with her long time crush and once best friend Christopher going into the dark side and British heartthrob Gabriel Luna writing songs about her, not to mention the fact that she might have to parade around in a 1o million dollar bra in front of everyone for the Stark's Angels fashion show...what's Em to do now?

Secrets, romance, intrigue and humor, Being Nikki has it all.

Loved the book, I have to say that, though I like Airhead well enough, I think Being Nikki has a stronger plot and is definitely one of my favorite Meg Cabot books. And it has a few twists and turns I didn't expect.

Plus, I can't wait to see what happens on the next book Runway.

  4. This (actually, the whole airhead series) is my favourite book series ever. I love Em and Christopher, and I adore their relationship-definitely my favourite book couple of all time!!! They aren't the kind of books that you can read, then just put on a shelf. You feel compelled to read them again and again and again!!! I can't say how much I love these books, because they are so amazing I can't even rate them!!!! Love it xxx
