Teen novel by author of the Princess diary.
well written for this type. Brain transplant theme.
Cabot (the Princess Diaries series) dishes up all the story
ingredients her fans have come to know and love romance, humor,
believable teen dialog and even a fantastical twist. This last bit
requires a major suspension of disbelief, but willing readers will
love it. Emerson Watts, 16, likes living in New York City's SoHo
neighborhood, but she can't tolerate most of the students at her
private high school. She and her best friend (and secret crush),
Christopher, escape their outcast status by immersing themselves in
online video games. But Emerson's bland world shatters when she
attends the opening of a new Stark Megastore and suffers a terrible
accident. She wakes up in the hospital one month later in someone
else's body and not just anyone else's, but that of super hot teen
model Nikki Howard. Cabot's portrayal of Emerson is brilliant.
She's a too-cool-for-school independent chick, but she doesn't grow
annoying, because the author makes it clear her sarcasm stems from
not fitting in. Once she's Nikki Howard, however, she has to
rethink her positions on the social order. Pure fun, this first
series installment will leave readers clamoring for the next.
