Book Review: Airhead

Airhead (Airhead, #1)Airhead by Meg Cabot
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Emerson Watts (Em) is a tomboyish gamer, not a party girl. She begrudgingly accompanies her younger sister to the grand opening of the Stark Megastore so that her sister can see her celebrity crush, Gabriel Luna and her idol supermodel Nikki Howard. While waiting in line for Gabriel’s autograph, a flat-screen TV falls from the ceiling and lands on Em. She wakes up from a coma a month later and learns that her life has been forever changed.

The back cover of this book is really vague (like my description above) so I had no idea what to expect from this book. I just picked up it because I’m on a personal mission to read/listen to all of Meg Cabot’s books. I was surprised to discover as I listened to this book that this book is partly science fiction. It’s definitely not hard science fiction but if you don’t think about how unrealistic it is and just go with it then it’s a very fun read. I don’t want to give too much away – part of the fun is not knowing what happens ahead of time.

This book is the first of the Airhead series – I’m looking forward to listening to the rest of the books in the series.
