Two Way Street by Lauren Barnholdt

Summary: By Amazon

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.


I liked this book. It gives insight to the many issues that teens deal with on a daily basis. These issues are love, lies, heart-break, and forgiveness. The two main characters, Jordan and Courtney, seem like real people who are in a relationship. They are completely opposites, but they work. Jordan listens to rap music and Courtney listens to alternative. Jordan suddenly broke-up with Courtney and says he met another girl. Courtney is surprised by the new situation. Not every situation is how it seems. Sometimes the people involved are not who you would expect. This book had some twists and turns that will keep you interested. I recommend it for those looking for a funny and light read.
