Another review I found posted on GoodReads before I started posting my reviews on this blog. Meg Cabot remains to be one of my favorite contemporary authors so I was very excited to have picked up this book!

Book Summary: 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.

I am really glad that RUNAWAY by Meg Cabot was the final book in the series. I would have been really annoyed if it was going to be stretched out in another book. I really hated the vanity of some of the characters even though Em Watts kept saying how she never used to be vain. All the talk about clothing and looks and Em’s hot new bod was getting irritating after a while. I get it. You’re hot now.

In terms of characters, I love love love Christopher and Lulu. I love how Christopher is always there to save the day even if he isn’t sure on how their relationship stands. I like how he isn’t just fawning over Em and he has some sense of moral ground. Lulu is such an unforgettable character! She says the funniest things and I don’t think anyone gives her enough credit! She really does give out the best advice to Em.

Overall, I enjoyed RUNAWAY by Meg Cabot. It was a quick read and I’m glad that the series has been tied up.
