Size 12 is Not Fat by Meg Cabot

Title: Size 12 Is Not Fat

Author: Meg Cabot

Genre: Chick Lit

Summary: After her pop star career turns sour, Heather Wells takes a job as a dorm (I mean residental hall) assistant supervisor. Two of her charges die after elevator surfing, only Heather doesn't believe that they were the type of girls who would elevator surf.

The Take-Away: Cute, sweet, and a little naive. I love the premsis of what happens after the rock star career is over. To keep it interesting, Heather has none of the money that she made since her mother cleaned out the bank accounts and disappearred with her boyfriend. The pay at her new job isn't great, but her ex-boyfriend (think Justin Timberlake) has a black sheep brother who lets her rent the upstairs of his townhouse.

Heather's attempts as an amateur detective are funny. She gets it wrong in so many ways, but her gut instinct is right. She was a sweet herione, if a little over the top.

Recommendation: Safe for readers of all ages. None of the descriptions would keep me from recommending it to the teenager next door.

Bonus Review: Edie Ramer, Magical Musings
