All That Was Read Online Free - Piper and Sloane were best friends. They grew up together, from childhood to first love, and in spite of how different they were, their friendship was supposed to last forever.

How do you make amends for hurting someone you love, if that person is no longer around? And how can you ever move on and love again?
