Rating: 5/5

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.

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.


I love Meg Cabot, I really do. All of her books are filled with humorous characters, fantastic plots, and just darn good writing. I wish I could be Meg Cabot, we are name buddies after all (Meg, Meg! Haha...ok not that funny). Anyway, after reading Being Nikki, I was fortunate enough to receive an ARC of Runaway from AWT Tours, and happily read the third, and last, book of the Airhead series.

Runaway takes off right where Being Nikki left off, Em is being held "captive" with Brandon Stark and someone else...who I won't tell you if you haven't read the series because it will ruin it! As the plot unfolds readers learn what Stark corp is really up to, and how far the company will go to keep certain secrets safe.

Jam-packed with action, intrigue, romance, and closure, Runaway was a great ending to a terrific series that is much deeper than it's original title "Airhead" portrays it to be. It was sad to see our favorite characters say goodbye but I closed the book with a smile on my face knowing that Meg Cabot, being Meg Cabot, always has a happy ending. Or at least one that works well for the book.

If you haven't read this series I definitely recommend that you do, and if you like this series be sure to check out:
