The Ninja Reviews. . .Runaway by Meg Cabot

When we last saw her, Emerson Watts was still having trouble adjusting to her new life as supermodel, Nikki Howard. She was trying to juggle school, her family, and her career. She was also attempting to get reacquainted with her best friend and secret crush, Christopher (who has totally changed into a super villain on a quest to bring down Stark Enterprises).

Even supermodels need a break, but being kidnapped by Brandon Stark and wisked away to one of his beach houses was not her idea of a vacation. Not only has Brandon abducted her, but he also forced her to tell Christopher that she does not care for him. Will Em be able to escape from Brandon? Will she be able to make Christopher believe that she really loves him? Will she ever be able to live a normal life? Or the real question may be can she ever be satisfied with going BACK to her normal life?

Em must prove that a girl can be beautiful AND brilliant. She must discover why Robert Stark transplanted her brain into Nikki’s body. But when she stumbles upon The Phoenix Project, she may just not live to expose her boss and bring him to justice.

Runaway is the final installment of the Airhead Series by Meg Cabot. This was one of the books I was most looking forward to reading in 2010 so I was excited to get one of the first copies available in the system. I do not want to give too much away, but I will say that all of the characters are back--Lulu, Steven, Gabriel, Felix, Frida, and even Cosabella. Also, I do have to point out that Meg is the queen of tying up loose ends so I totally feel like I got my monies worth!

Check out the first two books in the Airhead series: Airhead and Being Nikki. If you've read those and need something else while waiting for the next Meg Cabot book, try one of these:

Peace, Love and Baby Ducks
