Publisher Comments:

The world is a terrible place not to have a best friend.

 

Scarlett was always the strong one.

 

Halley was always content to follow in her wake.

 

Then Scarletts boyfriend died, and Scarlett learned that she was pregnant.

 

Now Halley has to find the strength to take the lead and help Scarlett get through it.

 

Because true friendship is a promise you keep forever.

If i had just read the back cover of this book, and had not read anny of Dessens other books, i would've thought it was trash. The backs really misleading. Makes it sound like some book just about silly girls and there small problems in life. It's got so much more to it.
It's about family, Friends, and love. It's oh so easy to fall in love with Dessens characters. And im so sad she only has like seven books or soo. I can read Dessens books any day. I think everyone should read this book. Teens, and there mothers. It is alot about motherhood, stubborn mothers, not good enough mothers, and new mothers. I just loved it.
