Being Nikki Book Review

In the sequel to Airhead, bestselling author Meg Cabot shows readers why being an A-List celebrity isn’t necessarily as glamorous as it seems.


Three months ago, Em underwent brain transplant surgery after being crushed by a Stark Enterprises television. Fortunately, that same day, A-List supermodel (and the face of Stark Enterprises) suffered an aneurism that left her brain dead. Stark performed the transplant by putting Em’s brain into Nikki’s body. But surviving the accident came at a price.

Brain Surgery

Now Em must pretend to be Nikki Howard, using amnesia as her excuse for her personality shift and memory loss. But Em can’t tell anyone about her true identity or Stark will send her parents to prison. Not even her best friend, and secret crush, Christopher, who believes Em is dead.

Evil Mastermind

Em tries to make Christopher fall in love with Nikki. But something inside him died the day Em had her accident. And it turned him into an evil mastermind, partnering with his computer-genius cousin to hack into Stark Enterprises files and destroy their corrupt company.

Eyes Everywhere

To make matters worse, Em suspects that Stark has eyes and ears on her 24/7. They seem to know about everything she does, which could only mean that they’ve bugged her gadgets and her apartment. To top it off, Nikki Howard’s brother Steven showed up claiming that his mother is missing. In order to maintain the façade, Nikki must use her resources to help find her. But what if Stark Enterprises is behind her disappearance?

The Bottom Line

Meg Cabot really digs deep into the characters she created in Airhead. We see people for who they really are, and whether you like them or not, that’s up to you. Being Nikki is a intense chick-lit mystery that any Meg Cabot fan will love.

At first, it was a joke. I saw the first clown sighting on the news one day and I felt bad for those kids, but there wasn't gonna be many more clown sightings. One day after I had soccer practice, it said a bunch more clown sightings. This time, the clowns had weapons. I started freaking out. The whole clown thing exploded in everybody's faces. One day before school, I was changing into school clothes, when I realized my TV was on the news. I was about to change it, but the clown threats came on. It showed a map of which states clowns were in. It showed my state. I grabbed my tennis shoes and ran into the kitchen, my shirt still only half-way on. I think it's terrible that sick people like that harass children and teens for their own cruel amusement. That's just disgusting. Everyone, please stay safe!
