When her crush asks her to fix him up with her perfect older sister, sixteen-year-old Andi decides it's time to step out of the shadows. She creates a twelve-step program for second-class siblings to help her steal the spotlight, and the guy, from her sister, Laina. 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. Even if all she's got going for her is really great hair. Step 7: Demand attention for more than just the way she screws things up. But when a stolen kiss ends in disaster, Andi realizes that her prince isn't as charming as she'd hoped. And as Laina's flawless facade begins to crumble, Andi discovers that the spotlight she's been trying to steal isn't really the one she wants. The sisters will have to work together to find a spotlight big enough for them both to shine.
