Cover Image
Title: And Then Everything Unraveled
Author: Jennifer Sturman

Grade: A+
Rating: PG-13

Summary: (Barnes and Noble) 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.

My thoughts: I had heard nothing about this book at the time I received it. Then shortly after, many reviewers started receiving copies as well. I’m pretty skeptic when it comes to books out of my comfort zone. Mystery with a sense of murder is not usually my thing. All I can say after this is DAMN was a wrong. This was a fantastic novel that was deep on so many levels. I could not imagine the pain you would feel if someone told you simply, your mom is dead. Then being forced to live between two aunts who are as different as peanut butter and jelly! Poor girl… I loved how Delia was willing to go to any lengths to find the truth. The only part that bugged me was the end. There better be a sequel coming!!!!

Recommendation: Girls 13 or 14 and up can enjoy the many aspects of family loyalty. Be forewarned of teen drinking.
