Emerson Watts didn’t even want to go to the new SoHo Stark Megastore grand opening. But someone needed to look out for her sister, Frida, whose crush, British heartthrob Gabriel Luna, would be singing and signing autographs there—along with the newly appointed Face of Stark, teen supermodel sensation Nikki Howard.
How was Em to know that disaster would strike, changing her—and life as she’d known it—forever? One bizarre accident later, and Em Watts, always the tomboy, never the party princess, is no longer herself. Literally. (http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2213324.Airhead)
This first book of the Airhead series was really made for teens. Containing the never ending high school drama, sister rivalry, I’m-in-love-with-my-bestfriend scenario, obsession with thyself, boyfriend(s) issues, it was the usual book that teens read because they know that it is relatable. These kinds of books were so typical that you (who have read these books over and over again) know what to expect. That the bestfriends thing will end up being the lovers thing. That the rivalry between the sisters will end and everything will be well. Happily ever after, as the cliché went. But Meg Cabot found a way to entice the readers by putting a scientific twist to it (also humor, which almost every book has if it was meant for the young-adult who gets bored easily). Using new technology, the story transformed from the usual to the exceptional.
I liked it because it is not that cheesy like those other books that contains to much sweetness that makes me gag. Also, I love the character of Em because I am slightly like her (I don’t play video games cause I don’t know any). In my case, I just have an annoying brother who was kinder than Frida. But I can assure you that Frida has more fashion sense than my brother (even more than me!).
But I was disappointed by it’s ending. It did not make me excited to read the next book. I was not curious with what may happen next. I prefer those books which are open-ended that I want to scream in frustration because I want to know what happened.
Oh well, I still want to know what will happen to Em so I’ll continue the series. Next up is Being Nikki. Ciao.
