Being Nikki Review

Finally, I finished Being Nikki... WHY can't 2010 come sooner!? I need to read the third book, Runaway, RIGHT. NOW, please!

Title: Being Nikki
Author: Meg Cabot
Publisher: Point Publishing
MSRP: Hardback: $16.99 US
Pages: 342 pp
Rating: * * * */5

Summary, in my own words: When Em Watt's brain was transplanted into Nikki Howard's body, she was sure life couldn't get much worse. How wrong she was.
Suddenly, she has Nikki's brother back in her life, she can't get over Christopher (who apparently can't get over Em-ooh, intrigue!), and Nikki's mother is mysteriously missing. Could Stark have something to do with this? Christopher is determined to get revenge on Stark for what happened to Em (who doesn't know Em is still alive- YET, anyways (; Oops...) recruits his cousin, Felix to help find out more about Stark... and *pardon the cliche, folks* they all find everything they know is a lie (I KNOW, cliches are AWFUL, but it's so darn late and I can't think of anything else. That's watcha get, people :P).

Overall: OMGOMGOMG! The plot was a zillion times better than Airhead (though Airhead was still truly awesome, mind you!)! So much drama, secrets, espionage, Big Brother-ness... I loved it. The thing that made me not give it a perfect rating, however, was that it was a bit slow moving at times... and sometimes, it just wasn't as funny as Airhead. But it was still hilarious. I just didn't like the writing at times, Nikki/Em seems to have become a bit self centered. But once you got to reading it, it got muuuuuuuch better.

Though not quite as good as Airhead, it went beyond the expectations you would normally have for a sequel, and didn't at all ruined the previous book. You must read this!

Mmkay, now off to feed my nocturnal habits, surfing the internet aimlessly. Plus- what else?- some reading.

Hugs and kisses, Megs
