It had all began with a handheld mirror. Now, at the age of fifteen, Skylar Montgomery has to do what he promised and wish his mom goodbye.
He never imagined life without the only parent he had. He misses her so much he swears he can smell the lavender lotion she used, hear her voice and feel her presence. Even with his grandparents at his side, he doesn’t know how he will make it through each day without her. But, he knows his mom died with a secret, and he’s almost positive it’s about his dad.
Ryan Kelley never imagined a letter from his longtime friend, Savannah Montgomery, was to tell him she’s dying and they share a son. He doesn’t expect the anger from Savannah’s dad, James, when he shows up at their home unannounced, and when he meets his son for the first time finds it shocking at their almost identical resemblance. He missed fifteen years of his son’s life and doesn’t plan to miss any more.
Reed Russell’s life started in foster care. He never had friends until he met Skylar in third grade, and struggles knowing Ryan won’t let Skylar stay with his grandparents. His mood continues to sour at how naïve his friend is in thinking life won’t change. How could his friend be so stupid?
