Publisher Comments:

"Life is an ugly awful place not to have a best friend."

Halley and Scarlett have been friends for years. People know Scarlett as the popular, flamboyant one; Halley's just the quiet sidekick, but she doesn't mind. The two of them balance each other perfectly — until the beginning of their junior year. Then, Scarlett's boyfriend Michael is killed in a motorcycle accident; soon afterward, she learns that she is carrying his baby. For the first time, Scarlett really needs Halley. Their friendship may bend under the weight but it'll never break — because a true friendship is a promise you keep forever.

Synopsis:

Haven's summer is framed by two weddings--her father's and her sister Ashley's. Nothing seems stable except for her memories of the summer that Ashley dated Sumner Lee, who suddenly reappears in Haven's life, giving her a perfect link to that perfect past--and her future.

Synopsis:

For fifteen-year-old Haven, life is changing too quickly. She's nearly six feet tall, her father is getting remarried, and her sisterand150the always perfect Ashleyand150is planning a wedding of her own. Haven wishes things could just go back to the way they were. Then an old boyfriend of Ashley's reenters the picture, and through him, Haven sees the past for what it really was, and comes to grips with the future.
