Former pop star Heather Wells has settled nicely into her new life as assistant dorm director at New York College—a career that does not require her to drape her size 12 body in embarrassingly skimpy outfits. She can even cope (sort of) with her rocker ex-boyfriend's upcoming nuptials, which the press has dubbed The Celebrity Wedding of the Decade. But she's definitely having a hard time dealing with the situation in the dormitory kitchen—where a cheerleader has lost her head on the first day of the semester. (Actually, her head is accounted for—it's her torso that's AWOL.)
Surrounded by hysterical students—with her ex-con father on her doorstep and her ex-love bombarding her with unwanted phone calls—Heather welcomes the opportunity to play detective . . . again. If it gets her mind off her personal problems—and teams her up again with the gorgeous P.I. who owns the brownstone where she lives—it's all good. But the murder trail is leading the average-sized amateur investigator into a shadowy world. And if she doesn't watch her step, Heather will soon be singing her swan song!

Not What I Thought
It was going to be but still really good. I hope she writes more books with Heather Wells as the main character ... and I don't get the cover either
AMAZING book! Meg Cabot can *write*.
I absolutely loved this book - I think I read it in a couple of hours - but you really should read the first book (Size 12 is Not Fat) before reading/listening to this one. It's not completely necessary, but it provides all the good background information that some might want.
You can really tell alot about the quality of writing by listening to an audiobook and this piece was one of the best written and narrated books I've yet to listen to! The narrator was dead on perfect in her characterazations - I throughly enjoyed!
