Size 14 Is Not Fat Either

by Meg Cabot

Rated: High

Heather Wells is in her second semester as assistant director of Fisher Hall, a dorm residence hall at New York City College. Last semester (the first book in the series, which I missed) didn’t go terribly well, with multiple murders, but Heather has high hopes that Fisher Hall will be able to shake the growing reputation it has for being “death dorm.” That lasts until the head of one of the residence halls ends up in a pot in the cafeteria. Heather is bound and determined not to get involved this time, but you know there wouldn’t be a book if she actually listened.

On top of the investigation for the dead girl, there’s also the problem of Heather’s ex-fiance, who is getting married. Except he keeps calling her. And turning up drunk on her doorstep (well, her ex-fiance’s brother’s doorstep; he’s her landlord). Which is not helping her plan to get together with the ex-fiance’s brother, Cooper.

So, yeah: even though there’s a mystery — and it’s not a bad one, either, even though I kind of called the ending, which I never do — it’s also a comedy and a romance. In short: just plain fun.

Rated: High for many, many f-bombs. (I lost count; it’s all one character, though. He has a really foul mouth.)
