Meg Cabot: Being Nikki

Even though I wasn't a fan of Airhead, I am a Meg Cabot fan and decided to give its sequel, Being Nikki, a chance.

Fancy clothes. Money. VIP status. World travel. Stylists. Parties. Hot guys lining up for the chance to date you. It's a dream come true.

While a girl could get used to the perks that come with the life of international supermodel Nikki Howard, Emerson Watts is still the smart, video-game-obsessed, corporate-hating, in love with her best friend--who (literally) doesn't know she's alive--girl she always was.

When Steven, Nikki's brother, shows up with news that their mother is missing, Em realizes there might be more to being Nikki and working for Stark Enterprises than lip gloss and fashion.

Someone has a secret. One they aren't afraid to kill for.

My problem with the Airhead series has always been that it's never really clear what type of books they're supposed to be. Sci-fi? Mystery? Chick Lit? Sometimes it's a bit too much. But this book was slightly more exciting than the first in the series. And, of course, there's a sequel on the way, and the ending was just dramatic enough to make me want to know what happens next.
