Meg Cabot: Size 12 Is Not Fat

Dumped by her record company for refusing to sing anymore prefabricated songs, left by her fiancé for a rising star rival, and scammed out of her fortune by her own mother, a former teen pop idol is forced to take a job in a college dorm.
With her former brother-in-law to be giving her a place to live and slowly making new friends, she’s beginning to get her life back on track-until the girls in her dorm start to die with alarming frequency.
Officially the deaths are due to elevator surfing but she has suspicions otherwise and sets out to prove that the women have, in fact, been murdered.
She succeeds in uncovering the murderer and their motive but almost loses her life in the process.
This was a fun crime novel in the chick lit style. There is a touch of romance but it takes a back seat to the other action.
The heroine is heard to repeat the title several times throughout the book which I found a little trying, but only a little.This story isn’t a stand out, either positively or negatively. It’s just an easy light-hearted read and doesn’t try to be anything else. And sometimes that’s all you want.-Lynn
