Emerson Watts, 16 and female, loves playing video games, hanging out with her best friend, Christopher, and has made peace with her less-than-supermodel-esque looks. But when she's involved in a mysterious accident, she wakes up to find she's now in the body of...a supermodel. Who was behind this switch? What was the motive? And how can she get Christopher to realize she's still the same person inside?
THOUGHTS:I like Emerson Watts, she's the anti-fashion and all things girly. She hates it with conviction, she called the trendy and popular girls in her school - The Walking Dead. So when her little sister decided that she'll follow in their foot steps she couldn't do anything but look out for her. And this includes chaperoning the little brat to the grand opening of Stark Megastore. (It is an all in one department store) While her sister swoon over how marvelous and awesome Gabriel de Luna, Lulu Collins, Brandon Stark and the mega teen super model Nikki Howard, she has computer games and the ridiculousness of the whole beauty industry in mind. But when the said supermodel Nikki showed up at the opening and a fatal accident happened. The next thing Em knew she was in a hospital gown, her skin was hooked up with so many wires and everybody keeps calling her Nikki. Gabriel visited her from the hospital and she was kidnapped by Lulu and Brandon. After much shock and thinking she realized what was done to her. Well I certainly did not see that coming. I was thinking for on swapping lives or the Freaky Friday thing that Lulu suggested. I was surprised and still don't know if I like that idea or not. It is a litte bit futuristic and too sci-fi for my taste. Maybe book two will up the ante. I am very much interested in what things Emerson will do. Now that she has the power err the face to influence people.
