Her mother suddenly goes missing, and everyone thinks she’s dead – excpet 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.

This is a great new debut of a new YA series. The characters are well developed within a short period of time and enough details about the NYC prep school scene to make you feel like an insider. I loved the conspiracy theories and mystery involved with Delia trying to locate her missing mother. I just wish it didn’t end so abruptly. The conclusion wasn’t at all satisfying and now I guess I will just have to wait for the next one.
