"The will to live will always outweigh the ability to die." What is a promise? Is it just a guarantee...or a commitment? Or, is it a way of life...or perhaps a bond of two friends that is kept regardless of what life throws at them. 15 year old Allison Cordova is on the fast track to an Ivy League education and the life she has always dreamed...until her new neighbors arrive. After a death in the family, Allison turns to Nicole for support, compassion and the one thing neither girl ever had...a friend. Nicole is dropped into Allison's world...and she has a secret. A secret strong enough that will have Allison considering her entire life a lie. While rummaging through old belongings, the girls find something that doesn't belong to them...and the owner wants it back. The Morella crime family also wants something neither of the girls know exists. The girls soon find themselves running for their lives and fighting for their freedom as the Mafia hunts them. They must be willing to go when no one else can. Allison is forced to fight for herself and her family. Can their promise withstand the secrets? Will Allison be able to forgive her family and break free from a world of chaos? How far would you go for your best friend...telling a lie...telling the truth...or even murder?
