“I just finished reading the book 'Size 12 is Not Fat' by Meg Cabot a few days ago. I would say it is a very well written book that was interesting and exciting. It might not seem like it from the title, but this novel is actually a mystery. There was something surprising within every page. Every chapter had an unexpected twist and I would never want to put the book down. To sum it up, it's about a former teen popstar who starts her new job at a college dorm, when girls begin to mysteriously die from falling off the elevator shafts. She also happens to be in love with her ex-boyfriend's brother. I love how the author connects characters that seem unrelated to each other and foreshadows to help you solve the mystery as you go along. I also like how Cabot makes the main character a drama queen because it makes everything so much more realistic and fun to read. At times, I felt as though I was in her (main character's) place when she discovered shocking things, "Where's the key?" I demand, swinging on Tina. "Who has the elevator door key?" "I-I d-don't know," Tina stammers. "It wasn't there when I came on duty. You can check my duty sheet!" (pg. 76). That is an example of a situation where the main character finds out that an important piece of evidence is missing and how she is lashing out at her colleagues. The mood in this story is definitely mystery, grim, romance and a little bit of comedy. If you enjoy reading stories with any of these features, I recommend you to read this book!”
How self-confident do you feel Heather Wells is?
I feel the Heather Wells is usually confident, especially when she has found a piece of evidence that can lead her to discover more of the investigation. Though, I feel that she is brought down easily, the police, detectives, her friends and coworkers all tell her that she should stop looking for clues or else she might get herself killed or hurt. She takes their advice for maybe a day or two, but then she ends up finding a new piece of proof and she decides to just stick with her investigation because she becomes confident that she's right. In the end she ends up finding the real cause of the girls' death. I like how this story in a way teaches you to stick with what you believe, because in the end, it will do you a great deal.
