Julia Eccleshare's comment:
Step right into the celebrity life of teenage supermodel Nikki. Apparently the golden girl of the catwalk Nikki looks like an absolute airhead but that’s just the surface. Underneath there’s nerdy Emmerson Watts who somehow got trapped in the wrong body and is finding out that being in the spotlight is not as easy as it looks. A hugely entertaining story full of surprises and love and passion.

SynopsisAirhead: Being Nikki by Meg Cabot
Supernerd Emerson Watts is getting to grips with life in the body of Supermodel Nikki Howard, and finding that the celebrity lifestyle is a lot harder than it looks. The bikinis are teensy, the heels are sky-high, and no one seems to care that Nikki's life is on the verge of falling apart.
