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.

Two-Way Street, by the snarky Lauren Barnholdt, is an awesome read.

Told in the same back-and-forth time jump of her debut novel Reality Chick, Lauren added another level and threw in alternating viewpoints! My brain hurts just thinking about working on something like that! But Lauren pulled it off well.

Courtney is forced to drive across the country with her ex-boyfriend Jordan because well, they'd planned the trip before they broke up, and it was too late to make alternative arrangements. At least, that's the word out on the street. The other word is that Jordan dumped Courtney for a chick he met on MySpace. And now she has to ride across the country with him. The guy who dumped her for a MySpace skank who Courtney has named Mercedes in her mind.

Poor Courtney.

Poor Jordan, too. But it's not how you think.

The story jumps back and forth between the past, highlighting the development of their relationship, and the present--the three days on the road. You will be pleasantly surprised at the twists that pop up in this book, and you'll be rooting for both of them at the end.

My only complaint isn't even Lauren's fault. It's the cover artist's/photographer's fault. Jordan drives an SUV in the story, and there is a CONVERTIBLE on the cover. *grumble*

Oh well. The book's good.

i've read this book so many times, the pages are all dog-eared and i still love it too pieces.
Courtney and Jordan are so great together and they just can't see that, it took them three whole days, jam-packed with drama and lies, to figure out what they have is so, ultimately, perfect, and they belong together.
This book is the best and i recommend you read it.

I loved that there were two points of views for this book. I also really liked the simplicity of the plot and the relationship between the two characters. HOwever, I hated both the guy and the girl to some degree....none of the characters were likable. I tend to enjoy books where the characters give me a warm and fuzzy feeling, and I know that most books don't have that. The girl was a bit** to be very blunt. I know she is upset but I didn't like how childish she was throughout most of the book. The guy? He was alright, but I didn't exactly find his character complex or anything..except the fact that he was driven mad in love with the girl for some unexplainable reason. I was curious of the ending though, so i kept reading.

Two-way Street is a book about love, lies, heart break, growing up, finding out a thing or two about the 'real world'. I like the way it was written. It has two different perspectives and jumps back in the past so we can see a story and plot building up. It's a cute beach read and I think many teens would enjoy it.

Honestly it had a great story line and I picked this book over many others expecting that it was going to be great. It wasn't that great, I didn't like the ending, and I felt like the book spent more time than needed on unnecessary details. Didn't really like how it was written either with the constant back and forth of events. I feel like the whole social networking part was dated and would have been better without. You should read if flashbacks don't bother you in a book and/or you want a fun, quick, light read! Best for 15 yr old to 17 yr olds.
