Synopsis: From the award-winning and New York Times bestselling author of Once and for All

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 Scarlett’s 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.
