Family isn’t always blood, and blood isn’t always thicker than water.
Seven years after an unthinkable tragedy left their mother dead, their father broken, and their family’s fortune in the hands of an opportunistic gold-digger, fraternal twin sisters Angelina and Blair von Essen have gotten used to a new kind of normal: a normal that includes far too many unanswered questions, a hurt that’s never quite healed, and a strained co-habitation with a self-centered stepmother whose knack for deception runs deeper than they know, and their misguided stepsister, Nicolette.
The three teens have struck up an amiable enough co-existence since Nicolette and her mother became a part of the family, but their impending Junior Year at Archbishop Wright Preparatory School promises brand new challenges for the girls to contend with – and plenty of high school drama, to boot. Crushes, boyfriends, friendships, schoolwork, and extracurriculars are all enough for any girl to juggle, but musical rivals, love triangles, and buried inner demons could have the potential to take “sweet sixteen” to a place that isn’t so sweet after all. When the scars of the past collide with the decisions of the present, can this sisterhood by circumstance survive the repercussions?
The second novel in the von Essen family’s saga, Stepsisters is a story about the heartbreak of betrayal, the thrill of first love, the meaning of loyalty, and the courage to carry on.
The Deceived novels are part drama, part romance, and part coming-of-age, focusing on the members of this family, their struggles in the face of unthinkable tragedy, the way that tragedy shapes their lives, their ongoing search for answers and closure, and the people they come in contact with along the way.
