    Summer break . . . and the livin' ain't easy! Just because the students at New York College have flown the coop doesn't mean assistant residence hall director Heather Wells can relax. Fischer Hall is busier than ever, filled with squealing thirteen- and fourteen-year-old girls attending the first ever Tania Trace Teen Rock Camp, hosted by pop sensation Tania Trace herself - who just happens to be newly married to Heather's ex-boyfriend, heartthrob Jordan Cartwright. But the real headache begins when the producer of a reality TV show starring Tania winds up dead . . .

    Would you consider the audio edition of Size 12 and Ready to Rock to be better than the print version?

    No, and its a shame, because the other audio books in the series were great, and got me invested into the series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    As usual Heather's interactions with the other characters in Fischer Hall is almost always just as good as the murder mystery.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sandy Rustin?

    Kristen Kairos or Justine Eyre. I think it's always better to have a constant voice be the voice of the series, and either Kairos or Eyre would have been best. Sadly, the fact if the matter is that Ms. Rustin didn't really seem to try, her interpretation of Gavin and the others was really just bad. Her narration of the story cost Meg Cabot a star.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Tanya Trace described her first marriage.


    Any additional comments?

    This book managed to make Tanya Trace likable which was quite the feat when you consider that she was like a constant villain for the other three books. Overall, it was a awesome book, only slowed down by a bad narrator, who doesn't show any excitement for the book.

    Network TV can be murder. Just ask Billy Blessing, famous for his smile, charm, and ability to survive the shark tank that is high-stakes morning TV. His career has just taken a very dangerous turn, however: his show's perky cohost, Gin McCauley, has launched into some brass-knuckles contract negotiations. And then the network's head honcho is murdered in his luxury apartment - and an ambitious D.A. decides that Billy is to blame.

    Overall

    So I really wasn't ready to like it at all. I only brought it because I love murder mysteries. Boy was I surprised , the characters were fun and interesting and Al Roker was an excellent reader and most of he enjoyment I found was due to him. I still won't watch the Today Show, but I will read his next book.

    Abby Cooper is a P.I., psychic intuitive. But her insight failed her when she didn't foresee the death of one of her clients - or that the lead investigator for the case is the gorgeous blind date she just met. Now, with the police suspicious of her abilities and a killer on the loose, Abby's future looks more uncertain than ever.

    "Not a fan of the Narrator"
    Overall

    I've read all of Victoria Laurie's books. I love them, but the narrator is kind of awful.Lines that i found funny and made Abby an endearing character now seem cheesy, and make Abby sound old. Its a shame because i really love the books, but listening to this woman is really killing the book.
