This One's For You by Brandy Jellum Published: July 22, 2015 Publisher: Booktrope Add to Goodreads Buy: Amazon / BN  Synopsis All alone in a new state, Brennan Daniels has only the memories of her best friend, Reagan, to keep her company as she starts college. Reagan is the reason for everything Brennan does—before she died, she made Brennan promise to stay good until she found a man worth keeping.
