Summary from Amazon:
Things aren't pretty for Emerson Watts. Em was sure there couldn't be anything worse than being a brainiac the body of a teenaged supermodel. But it turned out she was wrong. Because that supermodel could turn out to have 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 to avenge the death of his lost love, and a British heartthrob who's written a song about her that's topping the charts. How can Em balance all that with school, runway shows, and weekend jaunts to St. Johns - 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; 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 really airheads after all...especially one model in particular. But then, nobody said it was going to be easy being Nikki.

Being Nikki was a fantastic sequel to Airhead! I love how the story is very original and love how many different types of novels Meg Cabot writes. She is one of favorite authors because I haven't read one of her books I haven't liked, and most of my favorite series are by her too (Princess Diaries, 1-800-Where-R-You, and the Mediator series). The writing is great, and the characters are funny and unique. 

I felt sorry for Emerson when she has to take over Nikki's modeling career and practically has to give up her old life, family, and friends. I couldn't believe some of things that happen and couldn't put the book down for a second! There were so many shockers at the end, I just couldn't believe it. The ending is probably the best part of the story because it's so shocking and is a major cliffhanger. I can't wait for the next book Runaway (clever name!) coming out in 2010.



  1. Great review! I thought Airhead was okay and wasn't quite sure about trying out this one. Glad you enjoyed it! :)

  2. I love the title of this book and am so jealous that your library has such amazing books! :)

    Great Review.
