The Airhead Series

People say "don't judge a book by it's cover."
I say, don't judge Airhead by Meg Cabot by its title.
I am not going to say this book is well written. I'm not going to say it's mature. I'm not going to say it is one of the best books I have ever read. I am not going to say it was really appropriate for my age. Because it wasn't. It was goofy, and silly, and fun and entertaining. I wouldn't join a fan club for it, or fall in love with one of the male characters, no team Christopher or team Gabrielle or team Jason. I won't read it over and over again, in fact, I probably won't even read it a second time. But if you are looking for something where you don't really have to work to understand the story or the language, a book that can make you laugh and allow you to get swept away in the story, the Airhead series are the books for you. Sure you get strange looks when people ask you what you are reading (especially if you are blonde like I am), but they are quick, easy reads that are perfect for people from age 11-13. If you are older than that, then there are books that would better suit your age group that you will like more (go look at the archives! They are on the left!! Do it!! Now!).

Runaway (the third book in the series) is due to be out May of 2010.

I know what you mean when you say "you don't really have to work to understand the story". Although I haven't read the Airhead series, I spent a few days of my summer vacation reading Flirt by Nicole clark. It was a little disappointing in its lack of cerebral-ness. But like you say, it might be just right for kids ages 11-13.

I think I'll post a review on my site, and if you don't mind, I might even imitate some of your polite wording here. It's never good to be rude on the Internet!
