Publisher's Summary

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 up 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 PI 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: 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.

A Fun Read!

Where does Size 12 Is Not Fat rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I was delighted with this book. Heather is a likable character and the mystery is woven in a clever way. This is written for young adults, but I am well beyond that and the writing and dialog was delightful for those who are only young at heart.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Size 12 Is Not Fat?

Without giving anything away, there was a thrilling elevator rescue.

Which character – as performed by Sandy Rustin – was your favorite?

Heather first, Detective Canavan as well.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Heather's overall spunk.

Slow start

Size 12 Started very slowly. Once the story picked up, it was great. Will read next in series
