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.

A bit of a guilty read, as I'm not a fan of the frequent references to Heather's "overweight" or "Size 12" and love of all things food, and reading this series feels like I'm endorsing that. What keeps me coming back is Cabot: she has a fantastic vernacular and for every cliche twist in plot she's got a couple great jabs at popular culture or a quirky view of a common situation which never fails to illicit a chortle. I hide the cover when reading this book in public, but I STILL read it wherever I am. There is an important Q&A at the end of this edition where Cabot explains her shtick about Heather's size. She wants to see more variety in lead female characters. Thank goodness.

I was not familiar with Cabot's writing and it took a few pages for me to decide to continue, but it was an extremely interesting mystery. Events triggered some fond memories of dorm life, and fascinating insights into the music world added to my enjoyment.

You have to love Heather Wells. The latest mystery is the best one so far. It seems to start a little slowly and has a little more serious tone (with some fun moments and observations); but ends up touching on some serious subjects.

"I've come to the conclusion that, aside from Nazis, the Taliban, and possibly the honey badger, there is no one on the planet more merciless than a teenage girl once she's decided she dislikes you." -- Heather Wells

The newest installment in the Heather Wells mystery series doesn't disappoint loyal readers of the series. Heather and Cooper are adorable, Heather's crew of nutty friends and family are entertaining as ever, and the mystery keeps everything interesting. Delicious comfort reading at its best.

I liked this book, but it was kinda boring. It's probably because I haven't read the other books in awhile, but I also found that the story itself just wasn't as interesting as the others. Overall, I would still probably recommend this book (and pretty much all Meg Cabot books), just make sure you've read the 3 previous books recently and know what's going on. I also really like Heather's character in all the books because she's funny, and I enjoy all the references to pop culture because it makes me feel like the characters are real people who live in real places, not just some place the author made up.

Its been a while since the last book in this series, and I'm not sure if its the absence of Heather Wells, or if this book was just kinda boring. I'll likely read the next, but this one was just okay for me.
