And Then Everything Unraveled by Jennifer Sturman

Delia Truesdale has no idea her life's about to change forever. She's too busy enjoying the California summer. Her internet tycoon mother, T.K. Truesdale, is out of town, and that means Delia can spend all her time at the beach, surfing. That is, until everything unravels.

Her mother suddenly goes missing, and everyone thinks she's dead - excpet Delia, who knows T.K.'s way too organized to simply disappear. But Delia's still sent to New York to live with her two aunts - a downtown bohemian and an uptown ice queen.

And in case that's not bad enough, she also has to deal with a snooty new school and trying not to fall for the wrong guy. Oh, and finding her mother.

As she delves deeper into the tangle of conspiracies and lies surrounding T.K.'s disappearance, Delia begins to suspect that the wrong guy may be the right guy...and that some secrets - especially the dangerous ones - were never meant to be unraveled.


In all honesty, this book was good. Not great. Nothing spectacular, but still enjoyable.

I liked Delia from the beginning. She was strong and didn't let others influence her opinions, even over her mother's whereabouts. I was intrigued by her background and how she lived growing up.

The big mystery of what happened to her mother was the center of the whole book. Delia is constantly thinking and plotting how to find her mom. She is so consumed with it that you just have to keep reading because it makes you want to know the real story as well.

The ending, however, left something to be desired. There were way too many questions left unanswered. I still wanted a lot more explanations. It just wasn't tied up enough for my taste.

Overall, it was a decent read but nothing too remarkable.

I LOVED the cover, though. It sort of reminds me of the opening sequence in the movie Juno. In any case, very cute.

3 out of 5 stars
