Airhead (Airhead #1)
EM WATTS IS GONE.
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.
I enjoyed many other books by Meg Cabot but this one grabbed my attention the minute i picked it up.This book was a breath of fresh air from a lot of the silly nonsense that is written (and somehow published) .The plot of this book is so unique from everything else , its about a girl and a super modle and a big BIG Â tv.....haha. No, but really this book is really cool because its about having to see the world in a whole different way ( even if you dont want to ). This thrilling tale is a MUST READ Â for 2011 :) xoxo RoseÂ
This review is about the book "Airhead" by Meg Cabot. I read this book two summers ago, and I still believe it happens to be one of the first thought provoking books I've read. When I first read it, it seemed to be a little bit too sad for me. The concept was that a girl died and her brain was transplanted into a celebrity girls body. No one could know about the procedure, and she had to go on living her new life, without her loved ones. As I'm getting older I have more of an appreciation for it than I used to. I think that the underlying concepts and messages are vitaly important for young adults to learn, and Meg Cabot does an amazing job at getting them across to her young readers. Definitely a novel worth reading.
This book was very unique. Unique story line, unique character, and a unique over-all feel to it. It was refreshing in that way!
The story was kinda weird, though. It was a little too sci-fi-like for me. But other than that, the story was really funny, fresh, and cute. I love Meg Cabot's style of writing, and the story was well written with relatable dialogue, and relatable characters. Although most of us aren't put in the position Em is put in, the way she handled it seemed like how any normal person would (try) to handle it.
Also, the way Em talks is very relatable. And how Lulu talks. She says "like" a lot, which I tend to do. And when Frida saw Lulu, Gabriel, and Nikki, she did that fast-talk, starstruck thing, which was very entertaining to read. Actually, all the situations Em was put in were very entertaining.
I enjoyed this book very much, and will be looking forward to the next book!
This book is a cute easy read. It's a bit funny but not too out there. It's all about the DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA but I love it. A teenage nobody's brain is transplanted into a paparazzi hungry model. This is her adjustment from her old to new life. IF you like Jinx by Meg Cabot you will love this.
Meg Cabot has always made me laugh and I just had to read another book of hers. Different as many of her others books; dorky princess, worst witches, ghost whispers, and many more. Sixteen-year-old tomboy, Emerson Watts never thought she will ever become a model until she has a terrible accident and has a controversial brain transplant surgery and is in the body of the famous model Nikki Howard. Forcing her life to change for ever.
It makes me wonder at points if this book had not been written by Meg Cabot, would it have received the same amount of attention? Certainly, for me, the summary and title/cover would not have interested me as much. A bit generic and a tad cliche, Airhead was nothing jaw-dropping.
I never seem to enjoy Cabot's series, mostly her stand alone books, and Airhead backs up that thought. Nothing really held my attention for more than that actual page. That is not to say that Airhead was awful. It wasn't. It just was not substantial.
Emerson Watts was a conflicting character for me. Sometimes I like her, and others I do not. Her sudden new appearance results in a sudden new rush of male attention. Of course, Em receives it with open arms. I kind of understand it since she never had such a romantic life but it gets too much. I just wish she stops fawning over so many guys--behave yourself girl!
When I first encountered Lulu, I hated her. Pompous cheerleader with a pea-sized brain, her attitude made me gag. But I gradually came to terms with her and found myself liking her (who knows why).
Em's family I really did quite like. Her little sister had spunk and sass and both parents were sweet. And Cosy was squeal-worthy. Adorable!
It was an on again off again for many of the characters. Appear in one scene just to disappear for another five.
Overall: Airhead shows potential but nothing more.
This magnificet book by Meg Cabot was a thriller. At first I was like um.. I don't think his i going to be good but it turned around after Em was Nikki. But did feel bad for Em because it's kind of creepy to be in someone else's body. I loved this book so much I bought it.
When Em Watts goes to the Stark Megastore, she didn't have any clue what she was in store for. After a freak accident injures Em to the point she can't use her body, and Nikki Howard is left brain dead, Stark industries does something crazy. They put Em's head in Nikki's body. Now Em is stuck trying to be Nikki, and trying to get her best friend Christopher to notice her, and realize who she is underneath the exterior...
The novel starts a little slow, but it still ends up with a great plot. The next one is sure to be a hit.
"Em Watts Is Gone, Nikki Howard Is Here To Stay" - Airhead
Em Watts is a normal teenage girl trying to get through high school, get her crush to notice her, and deal with her little sister, Frida. When Frida wants to go to the new Stark Megastore opening to meet singer, Gabriel Luna, Em goes along to watch her. Supermodel Nikki Howard is there also. When a horrible accident occurs, Nikki's and Em's lives will never be the same...
This was another great book by Meg Cabot. The plot was unique and kept me eagerly turning the pages. Em was a great main character and her story will stick with me long after I finished the book. I've just started the sequel, Being Nikki, and like it just as much! I highly recommend Airhead to anyone.
