Halley has always followed her best friend, Scarlett, in wake. But when Scarlett learns that a motorcycle accident killed her boyfriend, and that she's carrying his baby, she's devastated. Scarlett really needs Halley, for the first time ever. They may bend their friendship under the weight, but it ... will never break--because a true friendship is a promise you keep forever.
As far as I was concerned, we'd come to a draw: I hadn't wanted to come, and she didn't want me to leave. We were even. But I knew my mother wouldn't see it that way. Lately, we didn't seem to see anything the same.
When I pictured myself, it was always like just an outline in a coloring book, with the inside not yet completed. All the standard features were there. but the colors, the zigzags and plaids, the bits and pieces that made up me, Halley, weren't yet in place. Scarlett's vibrant reds and golds helped some, but I was still waiting.
