Synopsis from GoodReads
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.
Delia & Charley; pg. 33-34
"Who's the Wicked Witch of the Upper East Side? And who're the Flying Monkeys?
"Your other aunt and her kids," said Charley. "Patty's twins, Gwyneth and Grey. That's Grey with an E -- they went for the British spelling, just in case the name itself wasn't pretentious enough. But don't worry. We're safe for now. I never give out my home phone number, and especially not to family."
The words were no sooner out of her mouth than the land-line phone on a side table started to ring. Charley jumped, startled, then she snatched up the receiver and checked the screen. "How?" she cried. "How does she do it? Nobody has this number. It's unlisted. I'm not even sure I know what it is."

You'll have to skip your last class, but I'm guessing you won't mind," she said.
"No, that's okay. It's drama, but we meet every day so it's not a big deal."
"Drama? Are you sure? Why don't I reschedule it for when you can miss something better? What time is physics? Or what about gym? When's gym?"
