Airhead Review

352 pages
EM WATTS IS GONE. 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. Now getting her best friend, Christopher, to notice that she's actually a girl is the least of Em's problems. But what Em's pretty sure she'll never be able to accept might just turn out to be the one thing that's going to make her dream come true . . . . NIKKI HOWARD IS HERE TO STAY.

As a light read I have to say this book was mildly entertaining. Seeing Em go through her transformation into supermodel Nikki Howard was interesting since she was finally seeing things from an "attractive" point of view. I was kind of disappointed that she didn't use her new looks to support her ideals but instead just kind of went along not changing much about the person she was supposed to be. Even though there was a lot of funny moments throughout this novel I got the sense that the underlying message was that looks do matter and that they make life easier. There were moments in the book where you did see an attempt to embrace all girls no matter what they look like. However, if you're looking for a fun beach read then this book is definitely for you.
