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.

        Halley's best freind Scarlet, who's always been her rock, the one she relies on for comfort, is pregnet. This worst part, the father died in a motocycle accident. Halley then meets Macon, the bad boy who begins to lead her down a bad path. This is just, awesome, pure geniousity.
