Size 12 and Ready to Rock

It's a day off from work but Heather got a call complaining about an incident happening in Fischer Hall. So from her place she ran as fast as she could to NYU and rushed into the second floor library. The moment she got in, she was shot and she saw Gavin (one of the helpers in her department). She told Gavin to take care of her dolls. When she realize there was no pain but just paint on her clothes, she figured that people were playing paintball in the building and Gavin was the one who shot her. It was a paintball  war between the Fischer Hall  desk and RA staff versus the student paint crew. Heather was tricked to give them pizza party money because the cafeteria was closed on Sunday night but in fact it was use to fund this paintball war instead.

After some chit chat, Jamie which was in the library and part of the RA staff of Fischer Hall heard something. Gavin's last name was called and Heather heard Cooper saying nobody gets away with shooting Heather and he fire the paintball gun. It was time to shut down the party and the plan was to round up everyone but Gavin refuses. Suddenly someone burst through the library door and Gavin shot Simon Hague the director of Wasser Hall . He was on duty that night and all you could hear were complaints from him.  Slowly Heather figured the call about someone in trouble were referring to the penthouse because not long after that an ambulance stopped in front of Fischer Hall and the paramedics were headed in that direction. Heather and Cooper soon followed the paramedics to find out that Cooper's sister in law which is also a famous singer Tania Trace fainted. 

Size 12 and Ready to Rock by Meg Cabot is the sequel from Big Boned where we left Heather and Cooper in a engaged relationship. The story continues in a new adventure for Heather and it's one where more of Cooper's family is revealed to the readers. This book is slightly less "detective" and "adventurous" compared to the previous books in the series. I was slightly disappointed in Heather's role in the story but am glad about other characters that were present. One thing that I love from the book is having more of Cooper's family involved. I've always enjoyed having new characters in a book as long as there are depth and growth for those characters.

Another thing about this book for me is some parts of the story is predictable which makes it less exciting to read. I have to say this book was not an eager read for me after I have read the first chapter. It wasn't like the other books where I would read chapter after chapter non-stop. It was just an okay book for me. After reading the interview posted at the back of the book I understand some elements of this book better but it still wasn't good enough of a story to me. I hope the writer has not lost her touch in this series. Somehow I get the impression that the longer the series went on for chic lit, the characters seems to lose growth and more characters will have to be introduced.  I still look forward to the next sequel which was indicated in the interview because I'm a big fan of Meg Cabot. One book does not change my love for her stories but I hope for the best.
