Title: Size 12 Is Not Fat
Series: Heather Wells #1
Author: Meg Cabot

Heather Wells Rocks!

Or, at least, she did. That was before she left the pop-idol life behind after she gained a dress size or two — and lost a boyfriend, a recording contract, and her life savings (when Mom took the money and ran off to Argentina). Now that the glamour and glory days of endless mall appearances are in the past, Heather's perfectly happy with her new size 12 shape (the average for the American woman!) and her new job as an assistant dorm director at one of New York's top colleges. That is, until the dead body of a female student from Heather's residence hall is discovered at the bottom of an elevator shaft.

The cops and the college president are ready to chalk the death off as an accident, the result of reckless youthful mischief. But Heather knows teenage girls . . . and girls do not elevator surf. Yet no one wants to listen — not the police, her colleagues, or the P.I. who owns the brownstone where she lives — even when more students start turning up dead in equally ordinary and subtly sinister ways. So Heather makes the decision to take on yet another new career: as spunky girl detective! 

But her new job comes with few benefits, no cheering crowds, and lots of liabilities, some of them potentially fatal. And nothing ticks off a killer more than a portly ex-pop star who's sticking her nose where it doesn't belong . . .


Heather Wells use to be pretty famous, then a bunch of stuff happened to her, and she gained some weight. Now while size 12 is not fat, many people seem to think it is, and while Heather doesn't she has to deal with this issue. But, when someone dies at her job, she starts to suspect that it wasn't an accident, especially when another one dies a week later. 

Things get more and more complicated when her ex-fiance comes into the picture, and the man she is currently in love with seems to want nothing to do with her. But, Heather is determined to find out who the killer is and to prove there is one no matter what. However, she may end up being in danger next. 

This book was pretty good. I thought the plot line was very interesting, and it had kind of a wacky type of humor to it as well. Also, I enjoyed Heather. She was a great character and I think it would be awesome to read more in this series.
