Being Nikki by Meg Cabot

Title: Being Nikki

Summary: Things aren't pretty for Emerson Watts.

Em was sure there couldn't be anything worse than being a brainiac the body of a teenaged supermodel.

But it turned out she was wrong. Because that supermodel could turn out to have a mother who's gone mysteriously missing, a brother who's shown up on her doorstep demanding answers, a former best friend who's intent on destroying Stark Enterprises to avenge the death of his lost love, and a British heartthrob who's written a song about her that's topping the charts.

How can Em balance all that with school, runway shows, and weekend jaunts to St. Johns — especially when she's got ex-boyfriends crawling out of the woodwork who want more than just a photo op; a sister who is headed to the high school cheerleading championships; a company she represents that seems to be turning to the dark side...

Not to mention trying to convince the love of her life that models aren't really airheads after all...especially one model in particular.

But then, nobody said it was going to be easy being Nikki.

Review: The life of a super model. Sometimes hard, stressing, and very boring to read about. But I can guarantee you this, with Meg Cabot you get the funniest thing ever.

Being Nikki was such a breath of fresh air for me. I loved it. I was so happy to be reunited with the awesome characters of Em aka Nikki, Gabriel, Christopher and many more new characters. Not to mention a cute little dog!

The only things I have a complainant about is the beginning. It was a little slow. I think maybe the plot was a little slow also. But once I got into the flow of things, I really didn't notice it. It did feel like one of those "sequels." I still loved it though. It had this certain quality to it that I just can't place.

Towards the end there were some really surprising plot revelations! I was like WOW! I can't wait to see what happens in Runaway.

I keep checking it out from the library but never have time to read it! Oops.
