Size 12 and Ready to Rock by Meg Cabot

Size 12 and Ready to Rock by Meg Cabot
"Summer break . . . and the livin' ain't easy!

Just because the students at New York College have flown the coop doesn't mean assistant residence hall director Heather Wells can relax. Fischer Hall is busier than ever, filled with squealing thirteen- and fourteen-year-old girls attending the first ever Tania Trace Teen Rock Camp, hosted by pop sensation Tania Trace herself—who just happens to be newly married to Heather's ex-boyfriend, heartthrob Jordan Cartwright. But the real headache begins when the producer of a reality TV show starring Tania winds up dead . . . and it's clear that the star was the intended victim.

Grant Cartwright, head of Cartwright Records, wants to keep his daughter-in-law (and his highest-earning performer) alive. So he hires his oldest son, black sheep of the family and private investigator Cooper Cartwright—who just happens to be Heather's new fiancÉ. Heather should leave the detecting to Cooper. But with a dorm full of hysterical mini-divas-in-training, she can't help but get involved. And after Tania shares a really shocking secret with her, this reality suddenly becomes more dangerously real than anyone ever anticipated."- summary from Amazon


I have missed Heather Wells so much!! I loved the previous three books and was sad that the series was ending with Big Boned. But luckily, Meg answered the call of her fans and wrote a fourth book (and is working on a fifth for next summer!)!

Anyway, I absolutely loved this book and I really enjoyed coming back into Heather's world. The entire book was hilarious and while it wasn't exactly a murder mystery (really more of a let's-find-a-stalker-that-we-know-the-name-of type of thing), it was still very edge-of-your-seat suspense. There were also some great call-backs to earlier books.

If you haven't read these books, please do! It's a fantastic series and Meg does a wonderful job writing them.

  2. I've only read the first one in the series, so I have a lot of catching up to do! I did enjoy it though :)

  3. I was wondering whether you would be happy to put up a link in my monthly series called “Books You Love”. The idea is for people to link up posts about a book they loved. It could be an old fave. I am hoping we will end up with a nice collection of books that can go on our reading lists. Here is the link Books You Loved July Edition
