Twelve Steps
by Veronica
Bartles
Release Date:
03/25/14
Sixteen-year-old Andi is tired of being
a second-class sibling to perfect sister Laina. There in Laina’s shadow, Andi’s
only noticeable feature is her pretty awesome hair. And even that is eclipsed
by Laina’s perfect everything else.
When Andi’s crush asks her to fix him
up with Laina, Andi decides enough is enough and devises
a twelve-step program to wrangle the spotlight away from
Laina. After all, great hair must count for something.
Step 1: Admit she’s powerless to change
her perfect sister, and accept that her life really, really sucks. OK,
maybe that’s two steps in one.
Step 4: Make a list of her good
qualities besides great hair. There have got to be at least three
good qualities, right?
Step 7: Demand attention for more
than just her shortcomings, and break out of her shell. Easier said that done,
but worth the effort in the long-run. 





When a stolen kiss from her crush
ends in disaster, Andi finds that her prince isn’t as charming as she’d hoped,
and realizes she may need a new program–perhaps with less steps!
As cracks in Laina’s flawless façade
begin to show, the sisters work together to find a spotlight big enough for
both to shine.
 
About the
Author
As the second of eight children and the mother of four, Veronica Bartles is no stranger to the ups and downs of sibling relationships. (She was sandwiched between the gorgeous-and-insanely-popular older sister and the too-adorable-for-words younger sister.) She uses this insight to write stories about siblings who mostly love each other, even while they’re driving one another crazy.   When she isn’t writing or getting lost in the pages of her newest favorite book, Veronica enjoys knitting fabulous bags and jewelry out of recycled plastic bags and old VHS tapes, sky diving (though she hasn’t actually
tried that yet), and inventing the world’s most delectable cookie recipes.
TWELVE STEPS
is Veronica Bartles’s first novel.
