How does an average tomboy end up in the body of a famous teenage supermodel? Find out in Kidzworld’s review of Airhead by Meg Cabot.

Author: Meg Cabot

Emerson Watts is nothing like the girly-girls who rule Tribeca Alternative High School—a group Emerson refers to as the Walking Dead. Instead of following the latest trends, Em opts for the classic jeans and t-shirt. And instead of fussing over the latest pop sensation or the world’s most beautiful teenage model, Nikki Howard, Em plays video games with her best friend Christopher.


Grand Opening

But Emerson’s life changes the day she brings her younger sister (a Walking Dead wannabe) to the grand opening of SoHo Stark Megastore. More than just fans arrive for this grand opening—supermodel Nikki Howard shows up, as well as a group of protesters. The protesters infiltrated the store, shooting paint balls at the TVs suspended from the ceiling. And in one life-altering moment, Em sees the TV above her sister sway and dislodge. Without thinking, she pushes her sister out of the way…and everything goes black.


The Transplant

When Emerson wakes up, she has no idea that the TV landed on top of her. Nor does she know that Nikki Howard suffered a brain aneurysm only minutes later. Both would’ve died if not for the top secret surgical procedure that saved the body of one and the mind of another—a brain transplant. That’s how Emerson’s brain wound up in the body of a supermodel. And unlike most girls she knew, Em was not pleased.


A Sticky Situation

To save her life, Em’s parents agreed that she would continue Nikki’s life, honoring all her commitments from modeling shoots to interviews. But Emerson isn’t ready to give up her old life. She enrolls at her high school as Nikki Howard, determined to reconnect with her best friend (and secret crush) Christopher. Only one problem— Christopher is still mourning his best friend Emerson, who he believes (and must continue believing) is dead.


The Bottom Line

Meg Cabot, known for her Mediator and Princess Diaries series’, is perhaps the best author of teen chick-lit. Airhead is light, faced-paced and extremely fun. Meg Cabot captures teenage thoughts and emotions so well that you’d think she was an extremely talented sixteen year old.
