Two-Way Street by Lauren Barnholdt
This was a very nice book.
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 was a very whimsical novel. I loved how it had the story from different perspectives. I also enjoyed how it alternated between the present day and before present day; so you could understand the story more. And, to me; the author seemed to have a firm grasp on what her characters are thinking. I'm not saying that I loved this novel; but I am saying that I enjoyed the way it was written and I could potentially re-read it in the future.
