Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Addictive! This is the first book I've ever read by Meg Cabot, but certainly not the last. I love her style of writing, and she has some great ideas. The plot was so addictive to this book, I was always excited to come back to it to see what happens next. The characters I also loved, and I cannot wait to see how they develop in the next books. I'm so waiting for the next ones so I can see what happens! I already really love this series. Awesome book! C;

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Not What Matters On the Inside It's What Matters On The Outside! Where to begin...How about that, this book was just plain awesome! Emerson Watts an average girl, doesn't wear make up, likes video games, is not a big shopping girl, and likes to read. She has her best friend Christopher by her side, and also he is just the Prince Charming in her own little world. But to him, they're just friends. Em's girly sister Frida is in love with teen sensation super model Nikki Howard and the singer she has the biggest crush on ever, Gabriel Luna are going to be at the Grand Opening for that Mega-Stark store. And of course Em is going to take her even though she doesnt want to. But a terrible accident happens there that causes her to wake up with her brain in one of the most famous models in the world Nikki Howard. This book was just filled with drama and it kinda reminded me of Hannah Montana's situation, except that Emerson is in it for life! I really recommend this book I thought it all fit together, and the boys in the book were adorable except for Brandon Stark, ugh. Other than that A MUST read!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from From Geek to Chic! This book was amazing! It's about a girl named Em (Emerson) Watts who is classified as a geek by the popular kids at her school. She loves video games and dispises everything like fashion, beauty and makeup. She's best friends with another geek named Chris, and together, they spend their days trying to beat another level of a video game. However, Em's sister adores the life of the rich and the famous: beauty, makeup, celebrities, girly magazines and everything in between. Emerson is forced to take her sister to the new opening of a megastore with Chris, where a popular british song writer is signing autographs... as well as having a special appearance by the world's hottest teen supermodel named Nikki. All of a sudden, a protestor hits a huge tv screen with a paint ball gun, and it lands straight ontop of Emerson. After Em wakes up after a month-long coma, she finds out that she is not who she thinks she is. She's actually stuck in Nikki's body...... Even though I knew beforehand that Em ends up in Nikki's body, I still had no idea what exactly had happened.... and where the actual Nikki was!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Meg Cabot is An Addiction I just can't put down a Meg Cabot book. I admit it. This one was a little bit far fetched (I tend to have less issues with witches and paranormal stuff than I do weird science) but I forgive Meg the scientific reach because it makes for a very interesting situation. Emmerson Watts is a high school girl who is secretly in love with her best friend - the guy she hangs out with and plays video games all day with. She knows her hair isn't perfect and she isn't a fashionista and she is okay with that. She hates the celebrity culture that her little sister is obsessed with. But then she has a terrible accident and nothing is the same when she wakes up. She has to change her whole life - but will the core essence of Emmerson change. Can she adjust to her new life? Can she make people realize what is on the outside doesn't matter? I am looking forward to reading the next installment of this series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wowzers! Oh my you have to read it. A lovely, addicting story, "Airhead" is about a teenage girl, who's enjoys playing videos games with her best friend and has just recently made peace with her much-less-than-a-celebraty inner self. But an interesting accident changes her, and she now must struggle with the questions of who did it and how she can convince her best friend that she's still the same person... on the inside.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Won't Disappoint A high school junior, video game addict Emerson Watts is a loner at her school, along with her friend Christopher. And despite her loner status, Emerson is content with most of her life. Maybe things could better, such as her little sister's obsession with the people Emerson and Christopher dubbed the Walking Dead. But that's when everything ends. On an irritating trip to the opening of a new Stark Megatore, where Em and Christopher have to supervise Emerson's little sister, things all change. In fact. (just as it says on the back cover) "Emerson Watts is gone. Nikki Howards is here to stay" pretty much sums it all up. I don't think I can reveal anymore of the book without ruining it. All I can say is that I enjoyed it very much, it was unique and Emerson was a character that you can completely relate with. I can't wait to read the next one! (the ending was a bit of a cliffy)
