Review: Runaway

Emerson Watts is pretty much your average teen girl. She goes to an alternative high school in New York City where she gets somewhat decent grades and is popular among her peers. In the love department Em is nursing a major crush and/or possible relationship and like many teenage relationships go she is often not sure which is the case. Except there is one thing, that makes her quite exceptional, she happens to have had her brain transplanted into the most popular supermodel in the world Nikki Howard. Em now finds herself drop dead gorgeous and stalked by one of the top corporations on the planet to which she seems to be permanently connected.  Oh and the real Nikki Howard wants her body back by the way.

In Runaway the third book in the popular Airhead series, Meg Cabot has pumped up the volume as Stark Enterprises has become even more evil than anyone once believed possible.  Not content with ruling the world through commercial means, Stark enterprises has more sinister plans that go far beyond the stalking of Em and trying to murder Nikki for her attempted blackmail.  Now they seem to be targeting anyone who buys their new product line of cheap laptops. The only question is why?

While trying to keep the real Nikki happy and her family in hiding, Em must find a way to stop Stark while still keeping those she loves safe from the company’s founder the nefarious Robert Stark. Also there is her pretend relationship with Robert’s somewhat repulsive son Brandon to keep up for appearance sake. Meanwhile the real object of her dreams is none other than her darkly handsome once best friend Christopher. Once her closest confidant he now spends his time either rescuing or rejecting her. But can even Christopher help her this time?

What’s a girl to do when she needs to save the world, catch the boy of her dreams and model a million dollar bra in the Stark Angels New Year’s Eve Fashion Show all at the same time? Cabot’s Runaway answers all the burning questions readers may have about the Airhead series and includes a plot twist you’ll never guess. The end is in sight; the only question is will Em or Nikki still be alive to see it?

A great book full of hilarious pop culture references for laugh out loud reading. Runaway and the entire Airhead series is perfect for the reluctant young adult reader or anyone in search of a fun read, Meg Cabot once again has hit on her hands. I really enjoyed the Airhead series and cannot wait to see what Meg has in store for us next…although I have heard her next series is a little dark…what fun!

Three Reasons Meg Cabot is Awesome (Read the Book to Understand)

1.) She knows who Candy Finnegan is ( loved that reference)

2.) Whenever anyone asks about the eleven year age difference between my husband and I, I can now say “Edward Cullen was like, a hundred years older than Bella.” – Thanks Meg that one will come in handy!

3.) Meg completely surprised me with her plot twist and that rarely happens for me since I read so much! Love it when does though!
