Rating: 4.5 out of 5

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.


This book was way beyond cute!  I loved reading about Jordan and Courtney’s road trip and watched as their love for each other grow even more than it was before.  You totally saw that Jordan was still in love with Courtney even though he felt that he couldn’t be with her, and that Courtney was absolutely heartbroken over what she thought, and totally was, a perfect relationship. 
Another great thing about Two-Way Street is that you got to see it from both Jordan and Courtney’s point of view, whether it be from the present or the past.  From Jordan’s point of view, you eventually piece together why he had to break up with Courtney and from Courtney’s point of view of how she’s trying to get over the break up, but really can’t.   What also makes Two-Way Street a really good romance novel was the fact that this broken up couple had to go on a road trip with each other!  Imagine all the tension and awkwardness that went down between the two!   It was pretty funny reading about the experience. 
Overall, Two-Way Street was very likeable.  It was a really cute romance story and I think I might read some more books by Lauren Barnholdt if I’m looking for a good romance and a good laugh :D 
Cover Review:
This cover was definitely very cool when I first saw it.  It's kind of like one of those covers where the image wraps around the whole book, so on the back cover, you see the guy working on the end of the car!  However, I noticed that the car on the cover isn't really like the one in the book because in the book, it was supposed to be a truck, I believe...  But this is a very cool cover.
