Does this extract sound good?

Q. CeCe woke up as excited as can be. It was her fourteenth birthday. She could hardly breathe.
“CeCe, are you up?” her mother called from down stairs. “Yeah, I’m up!” she called back to her, sitting up in her bed. Then her older sister, Bella, walks in, “Happy Birthday little sister.” She gave her a hug.
“Thanks big sister.” CeCe smiles as her sister walks down stairs. She made her way to her wardrobe and picked out the trendiest outfit she could find. It was a white sleeveless shirt, a green floral printed skirt and orchard pink patent lace up derby shoes with jewelled heels.
Then she went into the bathroom where, she washed her face and curled her layered brown hair. Quickly, CeCe put on a dab of lip balm and when downstairs for breakfast. “Happy birthday, darling.” Her mum said, in a perky voice. She hugs CeCe and kisses her on the forehead.
“Happy birthday, CeCe.” Her dad grinned, kissing her on the cheek. Then the doorbell rang. “I’ll get it!” CeCe called rushing to the door. When she opened it, there was a tall redhead lady in a suit on the doorstep. CeCe was a bit worried so she shouted, “Mum!”
Her mother came to the door as the woman said “Hello, I’m Samantha Rhodes, London child and family service, I realize today is Miss Cecelia’s fourteenth birthday.”
“Yes, it is.” CeCe mum replied, with a worried expression on her face.
“Well, I suggest you don’t know the truth,” the lady said briefly “May I come in?” CeCe wondered what she could mean as she and her mum moved out of the way to let the lady in. Then she sits on the sofa followed by CeCe, her mum, her dad and Bella.
“So Miss Cecelia, first off, happy birthday.” The lady said, cheerily. “Thanks.” CeCe snapped, which sounded kind of mean. “This is never easy,” the lady continues, taking a deep breath “But we are supposed to do this on the fourteen birthday of all of our children. Miss Cecelia Delilah Burrows, you are an adopted child.”
CeCe’s mouth drops open, and she starts blinking really fast to hold back her tears “There’s no way I’m adopted. Go away and leave us alone!”
“Miss Burrows, I know you’re upset, but you need to know the truth.” The lady said, trying to reassure CeCe.
“It’s not the truth, you’re lying!” CeCe shouted.
“You also have a twin,” the lady continued, as CeCe started to calm down “You were separated at birth. Her name is Alexandra Emma Pope. She lives in Hounslow.” CeCe was left speechless, she ran up stairs to her room, and slammed the door shut.

A. It's not horrible, but based off this excerpt I wouldn't read this sort of novel. It's seems a bit too cliched.

What is the best plus size store.?
Q. Is there any store like Fashion Bug? Excluding Torrid & LB

A. Hey, I just answered a question similar to this for another girl. I am just going to copy and paste my answer because I think that it might help you!

"...I feel your pain! I usually find great clothes at those stores, but some of them aren't my style. I can usually find great basic pieces... like dress pants, button up shirts, and jeans at Macy*s and Lane Bryant but I like the hip stuff too!

In my area, these are the places I go to...

Goody's. Believe it or not, they have a small section in the Plus Size women's department called Junior Plus. I bought some of my favorite summer outfits from there this year. They usually have the trendy stuff, too! I like their summer tops and shorts!

Ross. If you have one of these near you, I suggest that you go! Their Woman's World section usually has a bunch of clothes for the older lady, but they also have a lot of cute style clothes. I got some really cute hoodies and tops there this fall. When I go there, I usually find 90430344909085 things or NOTHING. It can really be hit or miss. If you take the time to look through each hanger, you will find some cute stuff. They go up to a size 4X too. Oh, and check out their dresses! They have a ton of dresses in Plus Size!

Cato. There is a Cato right down the road from me. They have Petite and Plus. What is cool is that anything that they have in Petite... they have the same exact thing in Plus. I hate going by a window and being like... "That outfit is so cute!" only to find out that it only goes up to a size 12. :( Again, you really have to look through the racks, but I have bought some nice stuff there. Also, they have a shoe section with plenty of wides and size 9, 10, 11.

Fashion Bug. While their stuff is usually lower quality, they do gear a lot of their clothes to the younger crowd. They usually have awesome dresses and stuff. I have a hard time finding dresses for weddings and events like that, but Fashion Bug has come through for me a lot. And they have cute underwear, especially if you like thongs and boyshorts.

Believe it or not, I do like to shop at Wal*Mart and Target sometimes. I find great basics like velvet pant suits, long sleeve t-shirts, and capris/shorts.

OldNavy. They used to have a better selection in the store, but they have gone exlusively online for their Plus Sizes. If you know what size you are, then you can shop there. I try not to buy online because I like to try something on, but I am really familiar with their sizes. OldNavy is probably one of my favorite places for summer clothing.

Those are my usual spots! I wish you luck because I know how hard it is to find something that looks cute and is flattering to our body type! Good luck! ..."

I hope this helps you!
