Book Description

4 Nov 2011

When you peak at fifteen, where can things go but downhill?

Former teen pop sensation Heather Wells has hit rock bottom: tired of singing other people’s lyrics, she hasn't exactly been bombarded with recording contracts for her own songs. Worse, Dad’s in jail, Mom’s bolted for Buenos Aires, and Heather can’t seem to stop drowning her sorrows in Kit Kat bars. To top it all, Heather's fiance Jordan Cartwright has replaced her – on the charts as well as in his bed - with America’s newest number one pop sensation, Tania Trace.

When Heather finds a job in a New York college dorm--right around the corner from her temporary digs in her gorgeous friend Cooper's attic apartment - things seem to start looking up....at least until girls in the dorm begin to perish at an alarming rate. Elevator surfing is the official explanation from university administration, but Heather has other suspicions, and - enlisting a reluctant Cooper's aid - she attempts to get to the bottom of the rash of teen deaths in the building where she works, never knowing that it isn’t her supper she’ll be singing for this time, but quite possibly her life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a Look 6 Aug 2006
Format:Paperback
I was given this book as a present and I couldn't wait to start it. I wasn't dissoppointed. I do agree with the reviewer who found certain bits annoying - the amount of the times she kept correcting herself certainly spoils the book and eventually you have to ignore those bits!!

I too didn't guess who the killer was and I normally dissopoint myself by guessing who it is!! Meg Cabot did a great job of hiding the killers identity right to the very end!!

The ending could have been handled better because your left wondering did they didn't they and I kind of got the feeling that the author wasn't too sure which ending she wanted to go with so just left it hanging.

However, it makes for a great summer read and is definately still worth a look once you get passed the repetitiveness.

5.0 out of 5 stars great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 30 Aug 2006
Format:Library Binding
i read this book on one flight! it is a great book that you can't put down

it has a bit of a slow start and the repetative "dorm - i mean residence hall" is a bit annoying but you completely forget about that while reading the book.

very different to the style of writing in the princess diaries. much better.

good storyline and great ending can't wait to read another heather wells mystery!

3.0 out of 5 stars A rambling mystery 8 Feb 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Heather Wells is a former pop singer who has fallen on hard times and is working as an assistant director of New York College hall of residence. Two girls die apparently while 'elevator surfing', but Heather is conviced that their deaths are not accidental, because girls don't elevator surf.
Heather lives in the house of her ex-fiancee's brother Cooper, on whom she has a crush, and who happens to be a Private Investigator. She tries to get him interested in the case, but he is reluctant to get involved, as are the police. So Heather decides to do a little investigating on her own account.
The story is not uninteresting, but it rambles on with rather too much detail about clothes, diets, beauty routines etc, and Heather's drooling over Cooper gets a bit of a bore. I guessed whodunnit about halfway through the book, though exactly why did not become apparent until about three-quarters of the way through. There is some genuine excitement towards the end, and Heather is rescued from the clutches of the villain in a very unexpected way. I think the book would have been better if it had been about 100 pages shorter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Size 12 Is Not Fat 7 July 2008
By Sam
Format:Paperback
I have to say I am terrible book junkie and no sooner than i buy a Meg Cabot novel i finish it.
With Cabot's books i cannot seem to put them down. I found this to be another one of her very good novels.
I must say i too found the "dorm... i mean residence hall" quotes a bit boring after a while but that didn't ruin what was a very good book. Cabot always leaves me in suspense whatever she is writing about; weather its romance or crime... or both! As in many of Cabot's novels I am compelled to go out and buy the next book as soon as its available.

i love meg cabot books and this one is no disappointment. for the older reader than princess diaries and mediator etc. love the idea of the book showing that there is life after disaster in this case being a famous teen star. kept me guessing as to who the villian was eventhough i had an inkling who it was but kept throwing me off. and size 12 isnt fat!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A fluffy mystery 19 Jan 2007
By Rachel
Format:Paperback
The Heather Wells mysteries are fluffy but the murder-mystery side gives them more depth than your average chick-lit novel. I do have to admit that Heather behaves far too young for her age in places - for example, she spends a lot of time pining over her landlord and not actually doing anything about her feelings. I think Cabot needs to work on creating realistic adult characters, but aside from that this was a really enjoyable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 3 Jan 2013
By Beth
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I would recommend this book to an older teen audience because it did get scary but was also was very gripping. The five stars were definitely deserved.
