Overview

After dallying with sexy vampires and ingeniously reinterpreting the Dracula legend (Insatiable, Overbite), #1 New York Times bestseller Meg Cabot is ready to rock ’n’ roll once more with Heather Wells. The un-petite assistant New York City college dorm director and sometime sleuth is back in Size 12 and Ready to Rock—a delectable comedy mystery that proves once more that the much beloved author of The Princess Diaries rules in the realm of grown-up women’s fiction as well. Heather’s got her hands full when a pop star and her reality TV camera crew invade the dorm—bringing with them a summer camp-full of adoring teen admirers—only to have an inconvenient homicide spoil the fun.  There’s romance, treachery, merry mayhem and music—just the ticket for readers who like to rock out on the hip contemporary singleton fiction of Sophie Kinsella, Jennifer Weiner, and Jane Green.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Laura Perenic
The fourth book in the Heather Wells series jumps right into the action and drama--paintball guns, ex-boyfriends, and ambulances take over the plot immediately. Size 12 And Ready To Rock strikes a good balance between providing enough information from the first three novels to keep the reader up to speed and not backtracking so much that things have to come to a grinding halt. Heather’s friends and coworkers constantly refer to events from previous novels, which makes the reader want to read them all. Based on character statements, the reader learns that Heather has matured and developed throughout the series. It is refreshing to meet a young female protagonist who relies on her savvy and brains to solve the murder of Tania Trace’s bodyguard. Heather Wells, unlike many meek and clumsy characters, is self-assured and sassy. The crime forces the celebrity’s Teen Rock Camp to take over a dorm at New York College. Heather’s boyfriend, Cooper Cartwright, must now protect Tania and his family’s interest in Tania’s music career as part of Cartwright Records. Mayhem ensues as Cabot reveals secrets from Tania’s past and Fisher Hall is overrun with fame-hungry teenage girls. School libraries will shy away from the language and sexual content of the novel; however, Cabot’s use of adult content does not feel gratuitous, and mature young adults will have read more scandalous material in novels actually marketed to their age group. Ages 17 to Adult.

Straight up and to the point...this book is funny fluff. If you are looking for a serious read, this isn't it. If you are looking for an all around laugh out loud, we're just here to entertain you read, then you've come to the right book. The Heather Wells series is based on a former child pop star who's money was squandered by others and now she works as an assistant director in a college residence hall. Heather is witty and irreverant and isn't afraid to go one step further than she should when solving a mystery. This isn't one of those books where I am going to go on and on about well crafted character development, a plot line to end all plot lines. Nope, and not because there isn't always a good plot line and honestly Heather in and of herself is all the character you need. I'm not going to do all of that because you really just need to pick up the book and enjoy the ride.
