And Then Everything Unraveled review
Title: And Then Everything Unraveled
Author: Jennifer Sturman
Inside flap description:
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- except Delia, who knows T.K.'s way to 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 snotty 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.
This books about Delia, a Californian girl who loves to surf, who's internet tycoon mother goes missing. Shes forced to live with her aunt in New York and go to a school were the cool group gives a new meaning to the word inexpressive. Everyone but Delia thinks her mothers dead. Not going to give up on her mother she investigates. With some help from a psychic, a girl who only thinks about how shes going to get into Stanford, and a guy who might or might not have given her her first kiss.
Delia is smart, sweet, and your modern day Nancy Drew. If you like books with mystery, a snobby school, and a dash of the cute popular guy then you'll love this book. One minute she's talking to an undercover detective and the next kissing the boy of her dreams. It'll take your breath away and at the same time have you anticipating for the next clue.
I couldn't connect with some of the background characters. You don't hear very much about T.K., Delia's mother. I felt like the aunt Charley was really her mom for some reason the entire book. Their was so many similarities between the two I just felt like she was some how actually her daughter. It wasn't the most deep book I've ever read but its a cute fun read.
This is a wonderful first book for Jennifer Sturman's series and I can't wait for the next, And Then I Found Out The Truth. I give this book an 7.5 out of 10.
