Book Review - Airhead Runaway


Emerson Watts is on the run: from school, from her family and from herself. She's reeling from the shock that Nikki, the girl whose body her brain was forced to inhabit, is still alive. And she's furious. Manipulative Brandon plans to use Em to discover a secret that will ensure his success, whilst Christopher is out for revenge, fuelled by his jealousy. With everyone around her playing a dangerous game, maybe Em should just keep on running . . .

My Review
This is book is the third in the series and i have been waiting for it since February, the hardback was supposed to be out then, but never appeared so had to wait till now for the paperback release.
After trying to remember what had happened in book 2, i sat down to get into this book. 
Em Watts is still in Nikki Howard's body and on the run, but not safe, with her is the real Nikki Howard inside someone else's body, Nikki's mum and brother, and Brandon Stark, who is only there to find out the secret that Nikki knows, the one his dad tried to kill her for. Em knows he has no interest in any of them apart from that secret, would they be safe if he knew. Nikki wants her body back and doesn't care what would happen to Em if she got it, so feeling threatened from all sides, Em is on edge.
Can Em reveal the secret of Stark enterprises before it's too late, and will Christophe help her, or is he still too mad at her.

This book lived up to my expectations, it is fast paced and full of twists and turns. Still slightly unbelievable in places, but thats part of the charm. 
I love the characters, especially Lulu and Frida, they are great. I could picture events in the book, it is written descriptively, but not so much it is boring, and once the secret of the story is revealed, you will catch your breathe.

Another fantastic book by Meg Cabot, hope she writes more soon.

My Rating

I would give this book a 8.5/10, very good, nice story, left me wanting more. Give it a go, but i recommend reading the first two books in the series before this one, it will make so much more sense.
