“Airhead” by Meg Cabot

30 Apr


“Airhead”
Author: Meg Cabot
Pages [paperback]:
First Lines: “Emerson Watts,” called my first period Public Speaking teacher, Mr. Greer, startling me from the light doze into which I’d drifted. Well, whatever. Do they really expect us to be alert at eight-fifteen in the morning? Come on.
Memorable Quote: However, because they have no actual interests of their own (or if they do, they squelch them in order to fit in) and merely pursue those that they think will look best on their college apps, they’re zombies.
Favortie Character: Emerson
Emerson Watts, 16 and female, loves playing video games, hanging out with her best friend, Christopher, and has made peace with her less-than-supermodel-esque looks. But when she’s involved in a mysterious accident, she wakes up to find she’s now in the body of…a supermodel. Who was behind this switch? What was the motive? And how can she get Christopher to realize she’s still the same person inside?
[Taken from Goodreads]

That summary right up there? ^^ Way more specific than the one on the back of the actual book! When I borrowed this from my friend I thought it was going to be a book about some supermodel and her glamorous life, sprinkled with a few love problems. Little did I know that a science fiction love story was hiding beneath the surface.
I loved the novel, once I found out what it was about! Em is a refreshing change from most of  the characters I’ve been reading about lately. She isn’t afraid to be true to herself-even if that means spending all day locked inside playing Journeyquest instead of buying the latest trendy clothes and gossiping with the cheerleaders.
The novel is great because the change isn’t some magical random occurance. There’s a scientific reasoning to the transformation.
So. This book was funny, interesting, and once I got into it [and figured out that the summary was nothing like the plot..] I zipped through the second half of the book.
“Airhead” gets 5/5 stars.
