Halley and Scarlett have been best friends for years, sharing secrets, clothes, and crushes. People know Scarlett as the popular, flamboyant one; Halley's just her quiet sidekick. Then, at the beginning of their junior year, the balance shifts. First, Scarlett's boyfriend Michael is killed in a freak accident; soon afterward, she learns that she is carrying his baby. She needs Halley now. But even as Halley does her best, she's dealing with her own pressures, resisting her controlling mother and dealing with her first serious relationship. Their friendship may bend under the weight, but it'll never break, because a true friendship is a promise you keep forever.
