by Meg Cabot
Airhead trilogy, book three
Emerson Watts is on the run: from school, from work, from her family, from her friends, from herself.
With everyone she loves furious with her for something she can't explain, and nothing but the live Stark Angel fashion show on New Year's Eve to look forward to, Em's reached the end of her rope. . .what's the point of even going on?
But when she discovers the truth about Nikki's secret, she knows there's only one person she can turn to.
Will Christopher be able to put aside his personal feelings and help her expose her employer to the world? Is it even fair to get Christopher involved--since if he agrees, there's every chance that Stark Enterprises will try to have them both killed--this time, permanently?
Maybe it would be better for Em to just keep on running. (description taken from amazon.com)
It honestly amazes me how Meg Cabot was able to make the fantastic premise for this trilogy so, well...believable. Really! I have thoroughly enjoyed these books and am almost sad to see Em Watts' story finished. She is a fun character to follow.
Without being spoiler-y, I will say that though readers may suspect what the nefarious Robert Stark is up to, the depths of his evil-doing surprised both Em and me! Cabot threw in a good twist with his plan and I was happy to see the resolution.
The one and only thing I would have changed...I felt like it wrapped up too soon in the end. There was a lot of build-up, then the plot reveal, the resolution, and then...boom...ending. I would have liked just a little more fleshing out of Em and Christopher's relationship finally coming together. *Sorry for the minor spoiler, but we all saw that coming, right?!*
All in all - an enjoyable conclusion to a fun, fashionable sci-fi trilogy.
