Summary

From best-selling author Meg Cabot, Airhead begins a series of books featuring Emerson Watts (Em, please).

She doesn't want to go, but Em must chaperone her little sister to the grand opening of a new Stark Megastore. Her sister can't wait to see the heartthrobs and supermodels that will make an appearance, including hunky Gabriel Luna and beautiful Nikki Howard. Em couldn't care less. Then disaster strikes, and after a bizarre accident, it seems that Em just isn't herself any more - literally.

A good escape

I'm an adult and enjoyed this "teen" book. Cabot explores one of the most common desires of all teenage girls--to become instantly rich, beautiful and popular--yet without the "work!" It was a great read but I thought the ending was weak. It seemed the author ran out of ideas and just ended it. Apart from that, I would recommend it for teens and anyone wanting a good, clean, fun read.

One of her best - a great read

This book is great - I hope this turns into a series. I love the dilema facing Em/Nicky and the wonders & joys of discovering her new "persona" and trying to stay in close contact with her family. This "theme" has a lot of room for more exploration.

Another creative paranormal story by Meg Cabot

What did you like about this audiobook?

I really enjoyed hearing this book. I finished it very fast as I wanted to know how the story would go on. I started to hear the second book as soon as I finished this one. It was a very creative story involving a brain transplant of the smart girl Em into a rather spoiled and not very smart top model Nikki after an accident at the opening of a megastore. Em needs to adjust and has to keep it secret while missing her former secret love Christopher, being pursued by ex-boyfriends of Nikki, paparazzi's and finding out that she is being secretly spied on. The book was very clearly narrated and was easy to follow.

How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

The creative idea of a brain being transplanted into another (in this case gorgeous) body and its consequences

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

The idea of transplanting a brain is very creative. Meg Cabot kept the story going adding more and more facts to the story turning the story very entertaining

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

Changing bodies

Meg Cabot restores my faith in fun books!

I have a sneaking suspicion that the best books, or a large amount of them, seem to live in the "YA" section as of late. I'm definitely not a young adult any more, but Meg Cabot writes such fun stories, & infuses her characters with so much life, delightful imperfections, that one doesn't need to be a teenager to appreciate & enjoy her books, including this one.
Reviews that simply sum up a book like a 3rd grade book report aren't very helpful to me, so I'll just say that the characters are interesting, so I really like & care about them. There is an undertone of mystery - that things are not quite as they seem - running throughout the book (there is at least one sequel, so hopefully it will continue), and I am reminded yet again, as the protagonist is beginning to learn here, that we truly cannot know another person's life, struggles, insecurities, etc, until we have walked a mile in her shoes....or lived in her body. :)
A very clever book. It appealed to my sci-fi geeky self, with an updated & tweaked version of films like "Freaky Friday" and " Big", with a dash of Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" - without the unpleasant cemetery bits. It appealed to my girly side that always liked makeup, hair and clothes.
I have yet to read a Meg Cabot book I don't like, she has such a clever (sorry for excessive use of that word, it just really does apply!) fun imagination. All books don't have to be Serious Literature or lifeless HEAs. The protagonist here has an excellent vocabulary (yet doesn't sound like she swallowed a Word-A-Day calendar & is just burping it back out), is independent but loves her family, and has a quick mind. If you haven't guessed, I liked & recommend the book. I enjoyed the reader as well, which can make or absolutely break an audio book.

Missed labeling of chapters... But otherwise okay

All the chapters are miss bookmarked after the first chapter, but otherwise it is okay...

Not as interesting as it might appear

The story is repetitive and the characters under developed. The squeals of the main character's 14 year old sister were so ear deafening I had to take my ear buds out.
