Synopsis via 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.

Noteworthy Passages

Delia and Gwyneth; pg. 56
"I don't know if it's crazy or not, because I have no idea what's going on," I admitted.
"You didn't hear?" she said.
"Hear what?" I asked.
"You don't know?"
"I don't know."
"You really don't know?"
"No, I really don't know."
"How do you not know?"
"I don't know how I don't know, but I'd like to know." I managed to say this politely, but the conversation was getting a bit frustrating.

Delia; pg. 237-238
We probably looked terrible next to the people who really knew what they were doing, and in my jeans I could never match the elegance of the women in their flowing dresses, but it didn't seem to matter.
And somehow, at least for a little while, the messy, disturbing circumstances that had brought us to that ballroom at that moment in time melted away, leaving only the music and the dance and the two of us.


Well there you have it folks. I hope you enjoyed my Noteworthy Passages picks for And The I Found Out the Truth. If you haven't picked up the first book, And Then Everything Unraveled, you really should. This really is a great pair of books and I hope Jennifer Sturman will be writing more YA in the future.

Hope you all are having a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by. And remember, comments make me happy. :D

PLEASE NOTE: This is a feature hosted here at my blog in which I present you with selected passages or quotes that I deem Noteworthy from a book I've just reviewed. My hopes are of course, that these passages will make you want to pick the book up and read it. This feature was started and created by me in January in hopes of making my blog more unique. That being said, I would like to kindly request that you do not use this feature as it was intended to be for my blog only and is not a meme. If you see some one else using it, please know it is without my permission. Thank you.
