Size 12 And Ready to Rock by Meg Cabot will delight fans of amateur detective Heather Wells. Heather is former child pop star; who is now broke thanks to her greedy parents who mismanaged her career. Heather is also a bit overweight, due to her bouts of emotional eating and genetics. Retired from show biz Heather now works as residence hall manager at New York College. She is the assistant manager of a hall nicknamed the “Death Dorm” for a grisly murder that happened there last semester.
The last thing Heather needs is another murder in the death dorm or any excitement during the summer. She plans to catch up on her studies as she tries to finish her degree in criminology. She is also reluctantly trying on wedding gowns in her spare time, now that she is engaged to her handsome private detective boyfriend, Cooper. The dorm is supposed to be closed for renovations for the summer. But, when the party-boy son of college president gets involved with the producer of a rock reality show, before Heather know it, her dorm is the set of a reality show and she is in the middle of another murder.
Heather Well is the embodiment of the insecurities that many women experience about their appearance. She is bright, funny, and has a fiancé who loves her, but she often feels awkward and at disadvantage because she is not a size zero. Cabot cleverly entwines a fast-paced mystery with self-esteem building scenarios and epiphanies.
Size 12 And Ready to Rock is funny, feel-good mystery.
