Synopsis from BarnesandNoble.com
EM WATTS IS GONE.Emerson Watts didn't even want to go to the new SoHo Stark Megastore grand opening. But someone needed to look out for her sister, Frida, whose crush, British heartthrob Gabriel Luna, would be singing and signing autographs there-along with the newly appointed Face of Stark, teen supermodel sensation Nikki Howard. How was Em to know that disaster would strike, changing her-and life as she'd known it-forever? One bizarre accident later, and Em Watts, always the tomboy, never the party princess, is no longer herself. Literally.Now getting her best friend, Christopher, to notice that she's actually a girl is the least of Em's problems. But what Em's pretty sure she'll never be able to accept might just turn out to be the one thing that's going to make her dream come true . . . .NIKKI HOWARD IS HERE TO STAY.
At first I did not know what to think when I started reading it. I could not get into it because I did not like Emerson at first. I am still not crazy about her but she grew on me. So I ended up really like this book towards the middle on to the end.
I like the science fiction in this book and I am by no means a science fiction reader but this kept me glued to the book and once I hit the middle of this book I finished it in about a day.
You never really know the true Nikki. All you know is that she was a model who had several romantic trysts. She is also being spied on by someone.
This book is a fast read and it will hold your attention and I look forward to reading Being Nikki. This is my first book written by Ms. Cabot.
4/5 is my rating
