Size 12 and Ready to Rock (Heather Wells #4) by Meg Cabot
Publisher: William Morrow Paperbacks (July 2012)
Formats Available: Paperback, ebook, audio
Format Read: ARC
My thoughts: Goodness this review has been a long time coming. It is the conclusion to the Meg Cabot Readalong that I joined earlier this year. Size 12 and Ready to Rock is the fourth installment in Meg Cabot’s Heather Wells series. In all honesty, I’ve picked up the first one, Size 12 is not Fat a number of times but have never read it. Now I’m kicking myself.
Heather Wells was such a fun character to read. She is spunky and sassy yet still a little bit unsure of herself from time to time. In short, she’s a character that is easy to like because she could very well be your best friend or sister.
Size 12 and Ready to Rock could possibly fall into the category of a cozy mystery. Trouble seems to follow Heather and she’s turned into quite the amateur sleuth.
This story has a bit of intrigue, a bit of romance and some definite humor.
I had such fun participating in the Meg Cabot readalong. As I got to know the main characters in each of the different series we read, the more I liked Meg Cabot’s style.
Synopsis from Goodreads: 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” fiancE. 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.
