Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 8–10—When Delia Truesdale learns that her mom's expedition ship has vanished somewhere between southern Chile and Antarctica, she alone is certain that her mother is still alive and she's determined to find out what happened. Unfortunately, her research will have to be done far from her Palo Alto home: per her mom's will, Delia will move to New York City to live with an aunt she's never met. Starting her junior year in a strange city is hard enough, but Delia is also trying to decipher garbled messages left on her cell phone and the cryptic notes she grabbed from her mom's files before leaving California. Even with the assistance of a psychic, a private investigator, and two new friends, there's not much to go on—except one lead that points to a conspiracy involving at least two companies, her mom's business partner, and her own crush's dad. All of the major characters have strong, distinct voices, and their actions are realistic and consistent. However, while the mystery of T.K. Truesdale's whereabouts is ultimately solved, there is no satisfying explanation for it, leaving the story feeling unfinished.—Brandy Danner, Wilmington Memorial Library, MA

Format: Hardcover
I felt like this book just got me. It was a mix of my favorite things, a little sleuthing (I love Veronica Mars) a pair of crazy aunts (I love Pushing Daisies) one who has fabulous taste in 80s movies, a cute boy, New York City and ice cream. Yes, there is a lot of ice cream in this book, I kid you not! I just loved this book.

I loved the mystery in the story and really I still don't know how it going to end, can you say sequel! I found the book really funny too, Delia's descriptions of her cousin's facial expressions, just priceless. And Delia in general was just a great character, I really liked her. She was one of many strong characters in a great cast. They were all unique from the P.I. with the cute ties to Natalie the girl that promised her parents she would go to a party to work on her social skills!

There are so many elements in this story I guess I shouldn't have been surprised to find out that the story is left open for a sequel. I need that sequel NOW! It ends with so many unanswered questions, I must know what's going to happen! It reminded me a lot of how Kiss Me, Kill Me and Kisses and Lies acted together, almost thinking of the first book and sequel as one book split into two.

I found this to be a great opener to a really interesting story. I can't wait to see where the story picks up and check out some of the author's adult titles in the meantime.

And Then Everything Unraveled is a good mystery with humor, heart, and a little romance. The story moves along at an interesting pace, but the end comes suddenly and doesn't quite satisfy. That's probably so we'll buy the sequel.

Format: Paperback
A captivating mystery with a bold teenage protagonist, And Then Everything Unraveled is a quick but engaging read. The plot and set up has been well planned out with more clues and hints coming at the right moments but still leaving many things hard to foresee. The writing is great, keeping easily with the teenage narrator but also holding a strength a range of readers will enjoy.

Delia is a spunky character, well developed with a strong sense of her upbringing that comes across the pages. Her mother, although not physically in the novel, still comes in strongly both in the way Delia thinks and acts as well as being the basis of the entire mystery. From her views on different acts and events to her job and interests, there is a large part of T.K. in Delia. Her father's influence is also prevalent, providing a strong sense of family despite their absence. Her actions and motivation are smoothly handled, creating an understandable mix between teenage girl and child determined to find her mother.

Charley is a fantastic character, full of life and brings constant humor to the story. Her interactions with Delia are some of the most memorable parts of the book and she is as well developed and rounded as Delia. Her responses and quirks add spark, even bringing out more of Delia's personality as a result. Patience also adds a certain flair though in a different manner and the crazy family who disagrees often scenario plays out fantastically here. Quinn is adorable, a nice mix of apathetic and caring. He has a few different sides and they show up at the right times. Delia's involvement with him covers a few different areas and it adds another nice feature to the book as a whole.

Cordelia Truesdale or Delia had a nice, carefree life in California with 2 best friends and a school she likes. All this comes to an abrupt end when her mom T.K goes on an environmental trip to Antarctica. Her ship is said to have disappeared and everyone, including her mom's manager Thad, believes she is dead. But Delia is not convinced. After all there no body is found.

When her mother's will is read, Delia is sent to her aunts Patience and Charity to New York. Although Delia believes her mom is going to return, she has no choice. She decides to investigate into the matter from New York.

This book was awesome, really. I could not keep it down. It was just so much fun with all the quirky characters. The fun and carefree Charity, the controlling and uptight Patience, her genius geek friend Natalie, the psychic Carolina, and yes the very cute and handsome Quinn. Quinn reminded me a lot of the guy from the movie The Cinderella Story staring Hilary Duff. A caricature, yes, but cute anyway. The sense of humor was amazing and I found myself laughing out loud many times.

From the blurb I thought this book would be funny, but I was really unprepared for how sad I felt for Delia and what she was going through. Maintaining a level of humor and yet making Delia's pain real was a very good and difficult balance. That was one of the reasons I liked the book more.

I was kind of surprised when everyone called their parents by their first name. I mean, is that normal? I didn't find any explanation of that in the book, so it left me a little confused. But other than that, And Then Everything Unraveled was very good.

This book obviously has a sequel. But this book has just released, so I wonder how long I will have to wait for that. Anyway, do read it if you like Young adult or just want to tuck into a nice, fun novel.
