Combine the storytelling of Sarah Dessen with a dash of Jodi Picoult and you get a great novel by Lauren Barnholdt. A story of heartbreak, lies, and love, Two-Way Street will not disappoint.

Right before Courtney and her boyfriend Jordan travel cross-country to attend school orientation, Jordan dumps her for a girl he met online. While Courtney is still angry, her parents force her to continue on with the plans to road trip together. With many miles between point A and point B, Courtney finds out the truth about her relationship with Jordan. "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.

Courtney and Jordan aren't the roundest of characters that could have been written, they are pretty much the stereotype of a breakup, but as the story nears its end, you begin to feel for them and their teenage romance. The story was a pretty easy read half way through, not the most exciting but then the story line really hits in climax and it was impossible to put down. Written in a Jodi Picolut-esque multiple point of views going from present to past, this is a book many teens could enjoy.
