Runaway by Meg Cabot

Runaway by Meg Cabot

Release Date:
April 20, 2010
Publisher: Point
Pages: 310

The past few months have hardly been easy for Em Watts; her brain was transplanted into supermodel Nikki Howard's body when her own body was crushed in an accident. Except Em can't tell anyone her true identity, since Stark paid for the procedure. You would think the life of a supermodel was fun and easy, but Em finds the opposite to be true. She has to fulfill Nikki's many contracts and agreements and to top it off, Nikki's boyfriend Brandon has taken her hostage!

Brandon has whisked Em/Nikki away under the pretense of a taking a vacation together, but in reality, he forced Em to lie to the guy she wants to be with--Christopher--and has blackmailed her into staying.

But this "vacation" can't last for long--Em has to model for the Stark Angel fashion show on New Year's Eve. Of course Em wants to figure out what Stark is up to more than she wants to walk down the runway in a diamond-studded bra, but she has to play along with Stark or its CEO, Robert, might just get rid of her for good this time.

Although Runaway felt over-the-top at times, it's a satisfying conclusion to the Airhead trilogy. Meg Cabot weaves a fast-paced adventure that will keep you reading to figure out what Stark is up to! Now and then Em seemed to over think things a bit too much and tended to exaggerate some past event or thought, but it was still nice to see a girl take the lead! Undoubtedly classic Meg Cabot writing--a strong female lead, humor and a flair for dramatics, Runaway will not disappoint her many fans!

This series sounds like a fun read. I've never read anything by Cabot, but I have the Princess Diaries on my TBR pile ;)
