Best friends for years, Scarlett and Halley have shared everything. But at the beginning of their junior year in high school, Scarlett discovers she's pregnant and their friendship enters a new and challenging phase
As with all of the other Sarah Dessen’s books that I have read, this one is terrific! Everything changes with one phone call. A life lost, lives change, a new life born and a community is brought together by merely chance. Scarlett and Halley are the perfect example of best friends. They support each other in ways that even I haven’t experienced with my own friends. Halley has always seen her mother and Scarlett as the strong ones, but this time it’s Halley who has to be strong for both of them. Michael may be “dead” physically but he seemed so alive to me by the way that he was just ever so present in their lives! Then of coarse this is a Dessen book and we of coarse are going to have the love factor here. Halley ends up falling for bad boy/ Michael’s best friend Macon. This book goes into forgiveness, the choices of having to grow up even if your still a kid yourself, and the power of young love. Dessen continues to completely captivate me in all of her stories and this one is no exception. Definitely a must read guys! I give this novel 4 out of 5 paws.
