Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Halley has always followed in the wake of her best friend, Scarlett. But when Scarlett learns that her boyfriend has been killed in a motorcycle accident, and that she's carrying his baby, she's devastated. For the first time ever, Scarlett really needs Halley. Their friendship may bend under the weight, but it'll never break--because a true friendship is a promise you keep forever.

My Review:
Imagine you are pregnant, you have to find a way to tell your mom and you can't. Imagine if the dad of the baby. . . Is DEAD. Sarah Dessen has written an astounding realistic fiction book called Someone Like you. Scarlett has just realized that she is pregnant , but the night after the baby was conceived Michael dies. Halley and Scarlet are best friends, so now Halley needs to learn how to be strong for Scarlet, as well as taking care of herself. How can Halley learn how to be strong, deal with boys and help her best friend?

Someone like You is a moving story. It shows how you can change your personality when you go through things that are different. Scarlet is depressed and Halley needs to come home from camp and help her feel better. A couple months later, she finds out how her best friend got pregnant. Macon, the boy Halley likes, asked her out and all he can think about is her. Her parents don't like Macon because they think he is dangerous. After Scarlet has been pregnant for six months and New Years is coming, an unexpected accident happens to Halley which causes her to leave Macon behind and move on. “Why are you just assuming I'm going back to him” Your parents usually know what's best so you should listen to them.

My Rating:
