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. (Taken from dust jacket)
Runaway is the third and final installment in the Airhead series. Readers learn the secret Stark has been hiding and how he plans to profit from it. Em is busy trying to stop him while attempting to save her relationship with Christopher. Living as Nikki Howard defnitely has its perks, but Em also realizes how far she is from her former life. Trying to balance the "old" Em with the "new" Nikki is challenging, but in the end she may just have the best of both worlds.
Cabot did the trilogy justice with the ending of Runaway. I enjoyed meeting Em, Christopher, Frieda, Lulu and of course, Cosabella, Nikki's dog. It's hard for me to write this review without spoilers. I will say, though, fans of the Airhead series will not be disappointed.
