In TWELVE STEPS TO NORMAL by Farrah Penn, the story is told from the perspective of Kira as she tries to recover her old life. After having to leave her whole life behind for for a year because of her dad’s alcohol addiction, she returns to her town as a junior in high school and must figure out what friendships and relationships are worth saving after so much time has passed. She comes home to many surprises (some good and some not so good) that she must face head on and fix before she loses everything… But will she really? I thought this book was very well written and it was very easy to relate to her attitude as a teenager and some of the struggles she faced with relationships, freedom, and parents.
