“Waiting On” Wednesday (20): TWELVE STEPS by Veronica Bartles

New WoW

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.

This week’s spotlight is on:


TWELVE STEPS by Veronica Bartles

Release Date: March 25, 2014

Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:

Sixteen-year-old Andi is tired of being a second-class sibling to perfect sister Laina. The only thing Andi’s sure she has going for her is her 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 and get the guy.

Step 1: Admit she’s powerless to change her perfect sister, and accept that her life really, really sucks.

Step 4: Make a list of her good qualities. She MUST have more than just great hair, right?

Step 7: Demand attention for more than just the way she screws things up.

When a stolen kiss from her crush ends in disaster, Andi realizes that her twelve-step program isn’t working. Her prince isn’t as charming as she’d hoped, and the spotlight she’s been trying to steal isn’t the one she wants.

As Laina’s flawless façade begins to crumble, the sisters work together to find a spotlight big enough for both to shine.


Why am I waiting?

I first encountered this book when I participated in a cover reveal blog tour for it and I’ve been wanting to read it since then. I’m really curious as to how the author plans to tell this story about sisters. I just read and reviewed HE BELONGS WITH ME by Sarah Darlington, which also has sisters (twins!) as the main protagonists. So I’m up for more stories like it.

What are you “waiting on” this Wednesday? I would love to hear all about them.
