Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heidi Hauser Green
The follow-up to Sturman's popular And Then Everything Unraveled aims to be as action-packed and romance-filled as its predecessor. In that book, narrator Delia Truesdale discovered that her reportedly-dead mother was, in fact, still alive and hiding out in South America. In this, Delia tries to sort out who is after her mother and why they want to destroy her. It's not going to be an easy task. After all, Delia's not in South America; she's in New York, under the watchful gaze of her aunts, Charley and Patience. They want her to be more mindful of her schoolwork and her new big city life, and less attentive to dangerous enterprises. Truth be told, she'd probably rather spend more time on those topics—and the attractive boy Quinn—too. But that's not going to happen. Eventually, Delia's going to have to fly south if this problem is going to be solved. Readers will be better off if they read Sturman's previous book before this one; it really feels as though it begins in the middle, which may leave readers who pick this up first unsatisfied. (It would be helpful if the front cover somehow mentioned that earlier book.) Still, readers of the earlier book will be glad to see Delia's story turn out so well. Reviewer: Heidi Hauser Green
School Library Journal
Gr 8–10—In And Then Everything Unraveled (Scholastic, 2009), Delia Truesdale's mother disappeared. The teen now knows that she is alive and well, but is stuck in Argentina. She won't be able to come back to the United States until they can find out who was after her. Delia's investigations are now leading her in a direction she doesn't want to go. She knows that her mother had been looking into a conspiracy involving several oil companies when she disappeared and now her own research has put her life in danger. While sharing the truth about her mother being alive with only a few friends, a private investigator, and a psychic, Delia must face the painful possibility behind her most promising lead, which seems to involve her boyfriend's father. Delia's dilemmas are explained with enough detail to make sense to those unfamiliar with the first book.—Betsy Fraser, Calgary Public Library, Alberta, Canada

    Fantastic follow-up!

    My Rating: 4.5

    And Then I Found Out The Truth was a fantastic follow-up to And Then Everything Unraveled. It had the same amount of mystery, action and originality. Usually I don't know what to expect from sequels. In spite of that, I was not disappointed. I was just as eager to unravel T.K.'s disappearance, as I was to determine the truth. Delia continued to blow me away with her spontaneity and constant search for her mother. Quinn, the evident partner in crime, started making an impression on Delia. He was the perfect person to ask for help.

    Eventually, Sturman revealed the secrets and lies once Delia ended up in South America. I ended up figuring out some of the outcome, however a few of the revelations were indeed surprising. I'm not sure if there will be a third book in the series since the ending seemed to wrap up Delia's journey. Still, if a book three surfaces I am certain I'll immerse myself in another one of Delia and Quinn's adventures. These two books left me feeling impressed and I recommend you add them both on your radar!

    Another Ejoyable Read With These Great Characters

    And Then I Found Out the Truth picks up right where the first book left off. It does a great job at briefly catching you up on all the details as it let's the story pick up.

    The characters I came to love were just as great as before. Delia is still a strong protagonist that never gives up. She is very easy to like and has a fun voice to read along with. I love her funny descriptions of her family, especially on her emotionless cousins. I got just what I wanted in this one, more Quinn! Delia and Quinn are very sweet together, but they also have to work on their new found relationship. I enjoyed that everything didn't go all easy-peasy for them. Delia's Aunt Charley continues to be one of the funnest characters I have read about. She is crazy and erratic and loves ice cream as much as I do. I just love her!

    The plot was filled with a great mixture of action and humor that kept me entertained. There was also a lot of mystery left with trying to find who is responsible for T.K.'s disappearance. The ending was sugary sweet and had me putting the book down with a smile on my face. I didn't love it as much as it's prequel. I think that might only be because how much I loved first getting to know and falling in love with these characters. Sturman has a talent for bringing to life diverse and intriguing characters. But I still really enjoyed jumping back into Delia's life, and seeing all the pieces of the puzzle come together.

    I recommend both books in this series to anyone looking for a fun YA read with enjoyable characters. It's a perfect summer read!

    And Then I Found Out The Truth Review

    Cordelia Truesdale's mother, T.K., is in hiding trying to stay alive with her new boyfriend. Meanwhile, Delia is trying hard to focus on a way to bring down the bad guys, get her mother home, go to school and not fail her exams, figure out why her kinda-boyfriend Quinn is acting strange and not calling her, and if Quinn's father is really one of the bad guys. Just a normal day in the life of a teenager.

    And Then I Found Out The Truth, finally gives the readers the answers they've been waiting for, though I felt the ending was a little anti-climatic. The sequal to And Then Everything Unraveled has more action, adventure, humor, and romance. It was an engaging read, although I felt the ending was a bit rushed and could have been wrapped up better, but overall it was a great book.
