Title: Being Nikki
Author: Meg Cabot
Publisher: Point, Scholastic
"Things aren't pretty for Emerson Watts.
Em was sure there couldn't be anything worse than being a brainiac in the body of a teenage supermodel.
But it turned out she was wrong.
It turns out she has a mother who's gone mysteriously missing, a brother who's shown up on her doorstep demanding answers, a former best friend who's intent on destroying Stark Enterprises, and a British heartthrob who's written a song about her that's topping the charts.
How can Em balance all that with school and runway shows - especially when she's got ex-boyfriends crawling out of the woodwork who want more than just a photo op, a sister who is headed to the high school cheerleading championships, and a company she represents that seems to be turning to the dark side...
Not to mention trying to convince the love of her life that models aren't exactly airheads afterall... especially one model in particular.
But then, nobody said it was going to be easy being Nikki."
This series is shaping up to be really awesome. The story started out feeling really science-fictiony, but now it's firmly in "chick lit" territory. That's not a bad thing! Being Nikki starts right where Airhead left off. The characters are all the same, but you certainly don't get tired of them!
We aren't able to keep Airhead on the shelves, so I can only imagine how popular this book is going to continue to be. It's a fun, fast, smart read that girls of any age are going to love. Guys may love it too, but I'm certainly not going to force it on anyone :). But it is a great book!
