And Then Everything Unraveled by Jennifer Sturman + Giveaway!!

Release Date: Available Now from Point

Source: From Publicist


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 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.

This book is FANTASTIC!! I could really just leave it at that, but I'll give you a few reasons why. First of all, it's a great mystery, which if your a reader of my blog you know I love a good mystery and I'm always happy when a new YA mystery comes on the scene. This book isn't necessarily new, but the sequel is soon to be released. I'm reading that one right now actually.

Another reason this book rocks, Delia Truesdale herself. She's fabulous!! She's completely uprooted from her life in California and yet she bravely faces New York City with nary a complaint. She's someone I would've hung out with in high school. Her family and supporting cast and equally as cool. I love Delia's aunt Charley, especially her love of '80s movies and takeout. I also love Natalie who's too smart for her own good, but who never questions Delia's instincts...well, almost never.

I just thoroughly enjoyed this read. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I immediately started reading the second book. I don't usually read series one right after the other, but I just had to know what happened next.

If you'd like to experience the fabulous Delia Truesdale for yourself, I've been offered a copy of this book, the sequel And Then I Found Out the Truth, and a cool little Magic 8 Ball key chain to give to one lucky winner.
