Book Review: Runaway

Runaway (Airhead, #3)Runaway by Meg Cabot

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Runaway is the third and I’m assuming final book in Meg Cabot’s Airhead series. This review assumes that you’ve read the first two books in the series and may have spoilers for them if you haven’t.

In Runaway, Em Watts has finally figured out what sinister project Robert Stark has been up to all this time and works with her friends to expose him. Along the way she and Christopher try to make the transition from best friends to boyfriend/girlfriend.

I had Robert Stark’s secret project figured out well before Em and the gang did and it got kind of frustrating watching them trying to figure it out when it was SO OBVIOUS! Also, I felt like Em had changed in this book and not for the better. She seemed to have developed some of Nikki’s shallowness. For example, she thought several times that Nikki’s new body was just not attractive and was kind of catty about it. Maybe Cabot did that on purpose and it was a statement about how being in an attractive body or in the modeling industry can change your perspective? Em just didn’t seem like the same character to me and that was disappointing.

Aside from those two things, I enjoyed this book as a fun book to listen to in the car and I was satisfied with how everything wrapped up in the end.
