Editorial Reviews


Praise for Twelve Steps to Normal:

A Publishers' Lunch 2018 Buzz Book

* "Penn creates a realistic character in Kira, one who finely balances the rational thoughts of a child of addiction with the emotional struggles of a high school student. Kira's journey should speak to many teenage readers, even those who do not have firsthand experience with addiction or addicts. ... A smart recommendation for readers looking to escape into a substantive world of personal discovery."―Kirkus, starred review

"Twelve Steps to Normal is a searing, gut-punch of a story--one that is, unfortunately, all too common. It takes us through all the painful steps of a relationship with someone suffering from addiction, but it does so in a voice that's funny and personal enough to make us want to keep turning the page, even when we are afraid of what we might find there."―Josh Sundquist, bestselling author of We Should Hang Out Sometime and Love and First Sight

"Funny, honest, and smart, Twelve Steps to Normal is filled with nuanced characters who you can't help caring about."―Melina Marchetta, author of the Michael L. Printz Award-winning Jellicoe Road

"Penn nicely captures the all-consuming emotions of a teen wrestling life into some sort of order. ... Penn's note to the reader explains that she too had a father who suffered from alcoholism, and it's this loving, compassionate hindsight that will speak honestly to readers in the same situation."―Booklist

"Twelve Steps to Normal is a powerful, heartfelt debut about the lengths we'll go for those we love, and the hurdles we encounter along the way. In pages brimming with honesty, Penn shines an empathetic light on addiction, ultimately demonstrating that forgiveness--not only its redemptive qualities, but its messy ones, too--is well worth the struggle."―David Arnold, New York Times bestselling author of Mosquitoland

"Farrah Penn's debut, Twelve Steps to Normal, is a heartfelt story about the aftermath of addiction. Equal parts swoony and poignant, I couldn't help but cheer for her main character Kira as she tries to put her life back together in the wake of loss."
Julie Buxbaum, New York Times bestselling author of Tell Me Three Things

"Step one: Pick up this compulsively readable book and fall in love with its richly drawn characters and deeply empathetic reminder that none of us are broken beyond repair.
Step two: Repeat."
Jeff Zentner, author of the ALA William C. Morris Award winner The Serpent King

"Poignant and powerful, Penn's story is searing in its insight into the human heart and the effects of addiction. Bravo!"―Adriana Mather, author of #1 New York Times bestseller How to Hang a Witch

"Farrah Penn's characters feel like old friends and new loves, all intertwined in a story that feels achingly familiar yet entirely original. Bursting with humor and heart, Twelve Steps to Normal is a dazzling debut you won't want to miss."―Jessica Taylor, author of Junior Library Guild selection A Map for Wrecked Girls

He holds the record for most New York Times bestsellers and is the author of the two most popular detective series of the past decade, the Alex Cross novels and the Women's Murder Club. Patterson has won an Edgar Award, the mystery world's highest honor, and his novels Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider were made into feature films. His lifelong work to promote books and reading is reflected in his website, which helps parents, grandparents, teachers, and librarians find the very best children's books for their kids. Patterson is a recipient of the Los Angeles Times' 2015 Innovator's Award.

Farrah Penn was born and raised in a suburb in Texas that's far from the big city, but close enough to Whataburger. She now resides in Los Angeles, CA, with her gremlin dog and succulents. When she's not writing books, she can be found writing things for BuzzFeed and sending texts that contain too many emojis. Twelve Steps to Normal is her first novel.
