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.


Airhead

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.

@rainbowpoptart Well, I'd have to disagree with you there my friend. Naturally the audience that buys Barbie dolls are young girls. At a young age and with multimedia today girls are highly influenced by what they see on the TV, Magazine, and you guessed it their toys. Seeing is believing and with the unreachable beauty standards you see in magazines, it's kinda hard for girls to not want to pursue to be skinner and the likes. But anyway, your right with the Barbie being independent woman that don't need a man. But I think this new line is showing that all types of girls can be independent. This new line is expanding its skin colors, giving different hip sizes and different heights and different types of hair styles. It's no longer the blond haired and blue eyed type of deal. I think this is representing that there are many different kinds of people and different kinds of shape a sizes. With the television showing perfect fictional girl characters, or models on magazines, and other places, I think that it's good that they're showing different body types.

@urifour11  I don't disagree with that. Well, not entirely. I disagree with your Barbie comments. Pink is Barbie's everything, and making something not pink for the female Barbie dolls would be a bit.. not Barbie.  I don't like their changing of the body shapes all too much. Barbie is supposed to be an exceptionally good-looking woman who shows girls that they don't need a man to be happy with their lives (though some people may think otherwise because of Ken's existence) and that they can do literally whatever they want to. It sounds really harsh, but I think it's the individual's fault for thinking they need to look a certain way to be accepted.  Although I strongly disagree with the newer dolls, I do completely respect why they're doing it. I'm sure they're working on the Lego sets. They already have dolls, so Legos should be here any day now, haha. And @Pink_Cool_Girl I want to look into the computer thing you were talking about to continue that discussion, but I'm super busy right now (I'm multi-tasking like crazy ugh). It'll have to wait until tomorrow. :P

@rainbowpoptart  You make a very good point. But what I think PCG is trying to say is that maybe someone should consider that some girls don't like pink? Like, I loved playing with doll houses as a kid AND toy cars. But what if someone made a black Barbie house. Like hell yeah I would buy that. Or maybe a pink you car. Wouldn't that be cool? Maybe what I'm trying to get at here is that companies could mix and match their toys together. Use different colors for different items. That would help expand their market much more.  What I'm really impressed though is what Barbie is doing at the moment with making different body types for their dolls. That's awesome right? Anyway, if a girl wants to get a toy car then she can just waltz her way to the boys section and get one. Sure it's kinda disregarding that maybe a girl would like a toy car but man, that's not stopping her from buying that sweet toy car. But what we should really be focusing on is how LEGOS did the sexist thing. WHY ISNT THERE A BATGIRL LEGO SET OR A WONDERWOMAN LEGO SET?!? THATS WHAT IM WAITING FOR AND IM 13 YEARS OLD BUT I WOULD MOST DEFINATLEY BUY ANYTHING REGUARDING WONDERWOMAN. A little off topic. Companies would make more money mixing and matching their toys. Blue toy cars for girls Barbies, a cooking grill for boys. And then there are things that are for both genders like science sets or Doctor kits. In fact I think girls play more with Doctor kits than boys tbh. What one saying is, companies could expand more.
