Format: Paperback
Well-known for her first novel, REALITY CHICK, Lauren Barnholdt has a new offering worth checking out. TWO-WAY STREET is the perfect book if you are interested in learning about both sides in a couple's breakup.

Courtney and Jordan are about to begin a three day trip from their homes in Florida to their college orientation in Boston. Usually this would be cause for excitement, but this trip is bound to be uncomfortable. The reason is because, two weeks ago, Jordan broke up with Courtney, supposedly because he met a girl on MySpace. Since the plans for the trip have already been made, Courtney's parents are insisting that she stick with those plans and travel with her ex all the way to Boston.

The characters and details of this novel are well-developed. Courtney is ultra-organized, schedule-oriented, and germaphobic. Jordan is a relaxed, take-things-as-they-come, rap lover. The story reveals their quirky best friends who are always just a cell phone call away waiting to offer whatever support their own busy lives allow. The private lives of Jordan and Courtney's parents offer their own unique brand of suspense to the plot. In addition, an underlying thread of the plot involves continued references to the use of MySpace, which is sure to be an attention-grabber for teen readers.

Barnholdt created the book with alternating chapters. In Jordan's chapters he tells his version of the story before, during, and after the trip, and Courtney does the same in her chapters. This unique style allows readers to sort of "read between the lines" of the breakup. The characters are dealing with secrets they feel must not be revealed. The resulting tension and hard feelings created by the secrets will have readers rooting first for Jordan and then for Courtney.

I read this book in a day because I literally could not put it down.
Although the plot could be really predictable, it has clever twists and it is so well written that the reader is completely sucked in to the story - which is basically that Jordan and Courtney, a high-school couple who have recently split up - now have to travel down to college together.
All of the characters - the main protagonists as well as their respective best friends B.J. and Jocelyn - have depth and development enough to not fall into the stereotypes which their characters do offer - e.g. Courtney could be the Good Girl Who Studies but she also texts in class and goes out partying with her friend. They are also really, really normal. In a good way. They could easily be you or your classmates (although obviously a little bit more dramatic).
The narrative is split between Courtney and Jordan, and then again into 'Before' and 'The Trip', which means that you see both sides of their story both before, during, and after their relationship. Also incorporated into the story are references to things like MySpace, keeping it totally up to date (for now...) and making it even more relatable to teenage readers. The romance is obviously the main theme in this novel - although not the only one - and it does have some romantic moments that make you want to climb right into the pages and join them for breakfast.
All in all, a great book which is so worth reading, even if this is a rambling review :)

I like that although this is written in first person we get to hear the story from both characters point of view. Barnholdt did a great job of giving Courtney and Jordan unique voices and both characters were fleshed out enough to give them extra depth. I found the dual narrative a fantastic way to tell the story as it meant we not only got to see both sides of the events and got to know things the other character didn't, we also got to see how Courtney and Jordan perceived each other. I've never experienced that before and feel it really added something to the story. I also loved both Courtney and Jordan as characters and believed instantly in their relationship. The flashbacks helped flesh out the story and there were believable motivations behind the characters actions - nothing in the plot felt at all contrived.

This was a really sweet book and I really wish there was a sequel as I'd love to spend more time with the characters and see how they navigate college life.

Format: Paperback
This book is about Courtney and Jordan, two people who are driving to their college. One problem though, Jordan broke up with Courtney two weeks before. This story is well written and you get to know and love both characters and their best friends, B.J and Jocelyn who are mentioned throughout the book via flashbacks and phone calls. Although I guessed what was going to happen I still loved it, I was rooting for them the whole way through. I think this book is realistic, Courtney is the girl who is cautious of most things and loves to text during class and Jordan is the rich jock-like character but is really very nice. The book is written in a way that you learn about the past while you read about what is going on in the present time. It is a refreshing way of writing a book and I will read it again and I recommend that everyone buys this book - you won't regret it!
