Airhead by Meg Cabot
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.
This book was a big improvement over Cabot's other recent books, but it still had some pacing problems. It took about a third of the book to really get into the story, which doesn't really deliver all that it promises. reads more as a first installment to a series than a stand alone. I enjoyed the book but I don't think it is really worthy of the TU. So, Thumbs Down.
