Airhead Review

Airhead by Meg Cabot
Publisher: Scholastic
Pages: 337
Genre: Sci-fi/ chick lit
From: Library

No one cares what’s inside.EM WATTS IS GONE.
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 devastating accident later, and Em Watts, always the tomboy, never the party princess, is no longer herself. Literally.
Now getting her best friend Christopher to notice that she’s actually a girl is the least of Em’s problems.
But what Em’s pretty sure she’ll never be able to accept might just turn out to be the one thing that’s going to make her dream come true….

         Ugh, this book was awful. From the very first sentence I could tell how bad it was going to be.  It's like Meg Cabot had this great idea for a book then was bored for the entire time she was writing it. 
         It's really sad because I could totally see the message she was going for, but Meg must have been preoccupied during the actual writing time.  Yet the book was well planned in theme and half way there in plot.
         The characters were very immature but I believe Meg was trying to give the little immature teens someone to relate to as she tried to get them to see that just because someone follows a crowd dosen't mean they are the stupid, mean people we think they are.  We should just all relax, and not care.  Then, someone's true nature will emerge from out prejudged thoughts.
          But this book was so badly written that the message wasn't really as powerful enough and it didn't call me to action because right when the character devolps a little Meg ends the book!
          Great book, Meg.  But where's the real thing, seriously.
