Review: The mysterious and intriguing plot were the key to making me appreciate and like this book a lot. I thought it was just a unique factor, not often seen. It helped a lot also that I liked the protagonist, Delia. I thought she was very believable and likable. I just liked her personality. I truly rooted for her, and empathized with her and her situation.

I also liked the overall feel, fast pace, and flow of the novel. The author, Jennifer Sturman, truly has a way with words because I was able to keep reading without at all getting bored. So overall, I just thought And Then Everything Unraveled was a fun, light, and entertaining book to read. It had the perfect mix of contemporary YA, mystery, a bit of romance, and a dose of comedy. Recommended!
