Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Huh"
    Would you try another book from Sarah Dessen and/or Katharine Powell?

    Yes, I like her books mostly


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Truth about Forever


    What aspect of Katharine Powell’s performance would you have changed?

    It seemed dry and forced


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    It was very predictable and I couldn't really get into it like I could with her other books

    "Not one of Sarah Dessen's best"

    Love Sarah Dessen, but this is not one of her best. The characters are not well-developed and none are very likable.
