Halley has always followed in the wake of her best friend, Scarlett. But when Scarlett learns that her boyfriend has been killed in a motorcycle accident, and that she's carrying his baby, she's devastated. For the first time ever, Scarlett really needs Halley. Though their friendship may be tested by the strain, like a true friendship, it will endure.
So this book is mainly a friendship novel. It's about being for someone when they really need you and knowing what right and wrong is. I love Halley, she is the epitome of a great friend. When Scarlett finds out that her boyfriend dies, she comes running and when she also finds out that she is carrying his baby, Halley is right there with her. This is a strong novel with many key facts and lessons in it. Halley meets Macon and her whole life seems to change, suddenly she is in this crazy relationship with this fun freesprited guy but after a while the shimmer wears off and the pressure to get physical becomes to much for her. The ending is really great and i thinks it's very impowering for young girls out there. It basically says that no matter what, you have your friends and your family and thats what is really important in life.
