1 Star #Review of Two-Way Street by Lauren Barnholdt

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.

Well I have to say that when I picked this up I was looking for something different from what I got.  The book starts off with Courtney having to go to collage with her ex boyfriend.  It seems that the trip to get to college has been planned before they broke up and now that they are broken up her parents aren't giving her any other options.  So she's stuck.  

This book is told in alternating POV's and Times.  From During the Trip and Before the trip.  It talks about how they got together etc.  It was all leading up to the REAL reason Jordan broke up with Cort.  I was hoping that when the big reveal happened it was going to be out of this world.  But what I got was a REALLY!!?? Thats why they broke up?  I kinda felt like this 


Like thats it?! WTF I just wasted my time reading this for THAT!!!  

Well have to say that I was glad this one was very short.  Read it while at Disney back in Feb.  lol. 


 Go Into This One Knowing 
Very disappointing reveal
