Justine's Thoughts: Runaway by Meg Cabot

[Airhead - book 3]
By Meg Cabot

Source: Library
Rating: 4/5
Book Description:

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.

A quote:

“Looks fade,” Mom would go on. “But intelligence lasts forever.”

Any thoughts (Vague spoilers):

I missed Meg Cabot and the Airhead series! I missed Em’s quirky voice and wonderful sense of humour. I missed Christopher, Frida, Lulu, Brandon, and Gabriel. It’s been a very long time! But this is a great end to the series although I felt that the usual spark was missing. Still, the ending is captivating and fresh.

I enjoyed Em Watts’s snarky comments about everything. Sure she can go on forever and I still would have laughed, but when she keeps on summarizing the previous events, I tended to skim over them. Her growth as a character, however, really shone in Runaway. She’s tougher and more confident in the things that she does. I totally applaud her for making smart decisions.

In the end, all goes well. Yay, happy endings! Of course, Meg Cabot throws in a little bit of fluff and romance for everybody, which I can’t help but cheer for. The all but mysterious issue with Stark is revealed and going down. I love it when everyone works together as a team!

While it’s obvious that there are light aspects in the series, there is definitely a message about beauty, self, and love. So if you haven’t started the Airhead series, I suggest you do so very soon as you will find it very worth it!
