Airhead by Meg Cabot

Meg’s understanding of the teenage psyche is dead on with this new book. Loveable, smart, and probably pretty attractive herself Emerson, lands herself in a life altering experience with superstar Nikki Howard, which may cost her what she loves most a straightforward and beautiful guy “best friend” and her family.

I love the characters, but I am looking forward to more development of some of the main players. I would like to get to know the people surrounding her a little better and hope Meg fills in more blanks in the next book. While we don’t get to know Nikki that well, I have a feeling her voice is going to be strong in the future books. The one to watch is Frida the younger sister as she adds insight into Emerson personality, while being ambitious, slightly shallow, and immense fun herself. Meg has such a strong voice when it comes to the secondary antagonistic, but loyal characters, especially sisters.

The end is a genuine cliff hanger and will keep you wondering what is going to happen in Being Nikki.
