A friend who is burdened with everyone's secrets and no outlet of her own until now. She passes the batton to you as a way of relieving the pressure of the burden she bares for the sake of her friendships. The book contains three short stories about friendships, relationships, love and deception and how the characters handle each situation while having one link to connect them all in the story teller.

What determines who you call friend? Is this person someone that you trust, can help you out in a pinch, or is willing to put up with you when your own mate will not? Is there different levels of friendship? Will you go to bat for your friends or will you stand back and watch them flounder. A true friend tells you the truth when no one else will even if it means the relationship will be damaged. A true friend will allow you to have your tantrum because he/she knows you'll be back because they know that you still care. How many true friends do we really get in a lifetime? I think they can be counted on one hand.
