Runaway by Meg Cabot

Runaway by Meg Cabot
"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."- summary from Amazon

This was a page-turning, exciting conclusion to a wonderful series. Cabot knows just how to write a thrilling climax. The book was a fast read filled with twists and turns, and a wonderful reveal. The ending was absolutely fantastic and worked out so perfectly; each step was carefully constructed.

Of course, again, I could not get enough of Lulu- she's just so wonderfully and unintentionally funny. I don't really know what else to say without giving too much away, but this is definitely my favorite series from Cabot. Definitely check this series out if you're looking for something different.

  1. Wasn't it a great book?
    I agree, Lulu is the best.


  2. Great review! I loved this book/series as well. And Lulu is definitely hilarious. I always loved her scenes, especially the one either Airhead or Being Nikki (I'm not sure which. It's been a while since I read those two.) with her and the delivery guy.

  3. The cover model looks like Serean Vander Woodsen (sp?) from Gossip Girl!
