Being Nikki by Meg Cabot

Things aren't pretty for Emerson Watts.

Em was sure there couldn't be anything worse than being a brainiac the body of a teenaged supermodel.

But it turned out she was wrong. Because that supermodel could turn out to have a mother who's gone mysteriously missing, a brother who's shown up on her doorstep demanding answers, a former best friend who's intent on destroying Stark Enterprises to avenge the death of his lost love, and a British heartthrob who's written a song about her that's topping the charts.

How can Em balance all that with school, runway shows, and weekend jaunts to St. Johns - especially when she's got ex-boyfriends crawling out of the woodwork who want more than just a photo op; a sister who is headed to the high school cheerleading championships; a company she represents that seems to be turning to the dark side...

Not to mention trying to convince the love of her life that models aren't really airheads after all...especially one model in particular.

But then, nobody said it was going to be easy being Nikki.


Being Nikki was a satisfying sequel to Airhead. There was no shortage of new twists. Things even start to take a dark turn.

Em Watts has now accepted and gotten used to the fact that she's now in supermodel Nikki Howard's body. She is just trying to go about Nikki's daily life while still trying to unravel the mysteries of Stark Co. And she can't forget about her feelings for Christopher, her former best friend.

New plot developments and discoveries cause everything to change and to put Em and her friends in a dangerous situation.

Overall, this was an exciting installment in the Airhead series. I look forward to reading the next installment, Runaway.

4 out of 5 stars
