“I obtained this book at a library teen meeting and decided to read it just 'cause. It's a pretty good book, although a little predictable in some places, the mystery managed to gain my interest.”Jayde wrote this review Thursday, October 24, 2013.

“Amidst all the usual teenage drama of moving to a new town and getting settled into a new school, Delia's faced with figuring out what happened to her mother, tycoon T.K. Truesdale. The title of this novel is very telling and reminds me a bit of Dude, Where's my Car? at the drive thru, "And then...And then...And then..." to the degree that some plot points are unbelievable. But I'm a sucker for conspiracy theories.
Character-wise I feel this novel is very strong. The Aunts and Delia's love interest, Quinn, are dynamic and interesting. I also love the description of Delia because of her mother and father's diverse personalities and backgrounds. Delia's Indian father taught her to surf and she's much more interested in that than the techie stuff her mother does.
Overall, this is a nice read but doesn't wrap up everything. I'm still wondering what's going on with T.K., so I'll have to get my hands on the sequel, And Then I Found out the Truth, at some point.”

“Cordelia Truesdale knows that he mother can't be dead, problem is, everybody else thinks she's dead. So, after being shipped off to New York to live with her zany aunt Charley, and starting a new school, she starts to delve into her mother's disappearance. Then finds out that there is a lot more going on then she could have ever imagined. With a cast of characters like the hot/sweet/distant Quinn Riley, The Wicked Witch of the Upper East Side and the Fly Monkeys (Delia's other aunt Patience, and her two children), Natalie the surprisingly not-shy genius, and of course Aunt Charley with her talkativeness that borders of extreme, and her kind heart, this book can be nothing but great.
I really appreciated the the author never really over-exaggerated any situations in this book (overdramatization is a book killer in my opinion), and everything, and the characters seemed pretty realistic. And Then Everything Unraveled is a page turner until the very end. With drama, romance, hilarity and mystery this was defiantly a four star book. I can't wait to read the sequel, And Then I Found Out The Truth. ”
