Review: Two Way Street

Title: Two Way Street
Author: Lauren Barnholdt

From GoodReads, "There are two sides to every breakup. This is Jordan and Courtney, totally in love. Sure, they were an unlikely high school couple. But they clicked; it worked. They're even going to the same college, and driving cross-country together for orientation. Then Jordan dumps Courtney -- for a girl he met on the Internet. It's too late to change plans, so the road trip is on. Courtney's heartbroken, but figures she can tough it out for a few days. La la la -- this is Courtney pretending not to care. But in a strange twist, Jordan cares. A lot. Turns out, he's got a secret or two that he's not telling Courtney. And it has everything to do with why they broke up, why they can't get back together, and how, in spite of it all, this couple is destined for each other."

     After reading Two Way Street by Lauren Barnholdt, I quickly moved this book  to our l recommended book shelf!  The main characters, Courtney and Jordan, were so likeable and as you read you really wanted them to work out their problems and be together.  I loved how each chapter changes perspectives between Courtney and Jordan, it makes the story interesting to know both points of view.  On the dreaded trip to college, pretending to hate and not care about each other isn’t as easy as they thought.  There are some really funny parts, romance, suspense and once you start reading this book you won’t be able to put it down.  I work at a high school library and we give this book to a lot of teens.  Not one has been disappointed!
