So, I have to warn you that sometimes, I try to only give a basis of a book or movie and not spoil it so you stay interested, and the first 100 pages are basically the author indirectly telling you a minor mystery but what I'm about to give away kind of spoils those pages, so all I have to say now is I'm recommending Airhead but don't ask anyone what it's about.
Now, Airhead is about a girl named Emerson Watts (no, not the one in the cover picture, kind of) who apparently has a boy's name, so she goes by Em. Did you know that Jacqueline Emerson was Foxface? Anyway, she's a boy-girl who prefers she lives in a world ruled by Stark Enterprises which is exactly like a big Wal-Mart that's bent on pure domination, and a supermodel who is the cover of this enterprise is Nikki Howard. Em's little sister, though old enough to be in high school like her, Frida, is totally in love with popstar Gabriel Luna. Em has no interest in either ditz until a rebellious "accident" lands Em waking up in...the body of Nikki Howard who fainted on stage, not liking ice cream anymore and all of a sudden into foods she hated, activities she despised, has a puppt who loves her more than anything named Cosy in short form, and is being crushed by all these people bringing her flowers and being told to have had stories with her that aren't all nice and can quite make a boyfriend blush.
Now, I started this book knowing what was supposed to happen in the introduction and if you just read my last paragraph, you do too. And after the first 100 pages where everything is obvious to everyone but the narrator, it seemed like this was supposed to be for die hard chick-lit readers who already knew Meg Cabot. Plus afterward it goes into a little too much time making unnecessary jokes about being in someone else's body, like "in my - no, Nikki Howard's something", but let me say that once it goes past that first flaw and dives into the diva business, I got exactly what I was hoping for. And sometimes whenever Cabot isn't using Nikki Howard's name in a joke, it's actually easy to laugh, and I rarely laugh when I'm reading. This book also has some characterization that kind of caught me off guard, about what it's like changing into someone who could easily get herself down and dirty to someone who just wishes to be loved, and that shouldn't be a problem for Em when getting the guys, seeing as how this book (spoilers again) has not just one boy relationship problem, or two, or three. Plus, the book does what I think is a main intention other than to have a spectacular heart-wrenching finish at the end, and that's to inform you how to act if you ever became a superstar.
Now, the book doesn't touch on every point I wanted it to, and sometimes spends a lot of time saying the wrong thing but it has crafted a marvelous world with great characters and I absolutely can't wait for Being Nikki, which I'm sure will be glorious since it won't require what this start required to get off the ground.
