Someone Like You: In this book Halley and Scarlett are great friends since Scarlett moved to the neighborhood of FIENDS. (Scarlett and Halley were 16 years old.) Scarlett got pregnat of Michael Sherwood (a boyfriend she'd been with, since summer). Michael died in a traffic accident the next day he slept with Scarlett; later on Scarlett noticed she was waiting for a baby from his ex-boyfriend and she only told her best friend (Halley) about this. Halley had to learn how to be a friend, and how to support Scarlet (who had always supported Halley) in this difficult situation. Everything had changed since the big news, Halley and Scarlett asisted to the doctor and to the Lamaze classes together. Later on Halley's mother noticed of Scarlett's pregnancy. While her best friend was passing through her pregnancy, Halley experienced a relationship with Macon Faulkner. He was the first boyfriend Halley had really loved and he really caused trouble with Halley's parents specially with her mom. Halley still doubting about sleeping with Macon or not decided to go to a praty with him in New Year's Eve and sleep with him; things didn't work as both had planned, Macon was angry, he speeded up and everything ended in a bad car-accident, Halley was in the hospital, she had sprained her wrist, some ribs and had a cut near her eye. After this happened and Halley was still sore she borke up with Macon. Halley's mother (Julie) tried to control Halley's life in every aspect and wanted her to avoid mistakes (while Halley and Macon were in a relationship), things changed until Halley told her she couldn't avoid making bad decisions if she didn't let her learn. Julie as well experienced and revived the feeling of being a daughter by helping her mother recover from a fall she've had.
The nine months passed and Scarlett's belly had grown enough. It was the prom dance of the school and Scarlett went with Cameron (a boy she had liked in the Commercial Design Class) and Halley went with Noah Vaughn (the gfirst boyfriend Halley had had). During this dance, Scarlett started having the final contractions, indicating her water was almost broken. They went out of the school's dance floor and Macon gave them (including Cameron) a ride to the hospital. Here Scarlett was taken to the inside with the help of a holpital bed, Halley called Marion (Scarlett's mother) and Julie to give the notice, some time later Scarlett had gave birth to a baby girl, to which she called Grace Halley Thomas. Everyone at the prom party was in the hospital's waiting room waiting for the great news.
