Two-way Street is the story of a road trip to Boston University, one that Courtney and her ex-boyfriend planned before their major break-up, before Jordan let her down for a girl he met on the Internet ( on MySpace). However, now that everything had already been planned, her ex didn’t feel the need to cancel the trip to her great annoyance, what she doesn’t know is that he has got a secret or two and it has all to do with his “cyber girlfriend”. And what I didn’t know was that I would hate the book this much.

Goodreads is too kind with the ratings, because “I didn’t like it”, I HATED it!

Nearly half-way through it and I couldn’t just stand it! The writing is awful, I’m sure that there isn’t a person in this world who could talk this way, so confusing, frustrating and incoherent, with stupid statements all over the page that don’t make any sense, jumping from one thought to the other, it feels as you are in a really messed up teen’s head, or two as the story alternates between the POV of the two protagonists, one on the day of their trip and the other 125 days before it, the night that they met.

I kept reading hoping that the story will get better, but the problem is not the story itself, it’s the writing. I’ve never been so disappointed by a book such as this one, the premise looked so good when I first read the blurb, but I didn’t expect Courtney to be so stupid and didn’t expect Jordan to be such an ass ( even for a teenager full of hormones). I couldn’t get past page 34 it was too hard for my brain to continue.

This is one of my favorite books I have ever read. Jordan and Courtney are a couple who have been dating since high school and plan to go across the country to the same college. Until, Jordan dumps Courtney for a girl he says he met on the Internet. There is a big secret as to why they broke up and why they cannot get back together. I love this book because even though it is fiction, it is very relatable, especially for people around my age and people experiencing breakups. It is easy to relate to and I enjoy that aspect. Also, the plot is very suspenseful and it grabs your attention, so you want to continue reading and find out what is going to happen next. There is also a romantic conflict throughout the book and that is my favorite type of books to read. The author also did a great job with organizing each chapter being narrated by Jordan and Courtney. The book was paced well, and the writing style made me intrigued. The main message of this book was to always be honest from the start. Jordan was not being honest with Courtney about why they broke up and he left her wondering for weeks. When he finally told her why, he regretted not telling her from the start and she was frustrated that he did not tell her. ( )

Ugh! I hate to read a book that I think is really great read when reading the book I find that I am disgusted by the characters of the book. ALL of them. I could not connect and as much as I liked the story I thought that the characters were absolutely annoying. The secret was horrible and I think that Jordan was not a man and was absolutely a horny -- teen who drove me bananas.

Not my favorite by a long shot :(

On one level this book was offensive - terrible language, such a casual and disrespectful attitude towards sex and women. Yet on another level there was something both sad and redeeming about the story line. Jordan finds himself falling in love and forced to keep a secret that he should never have had to carry around. He is failed by the adults that should have protected him and in coping with this knowledge and his growing feelings for Courtney he does the only thing he can think of. The ending provides some resolution, but the tension of truth and betrayal, of love in the hands of teens who have only a vague understanding left me feeling unsettled and a bit outraged on behalf of these kids who deserved to have better parents.

For my sister, Kelsey, because she begged and begged to have a book dedicated to her (and also because she's amazing and wonderful and makes my book signings a lot more fun)

I'm a traitor to my generation. Seriously. All we hear about these days is being strong women and standing up for ourselves, and now look what I've done.

So, Sex is very important to a relationship, he says. How do you know you love her if you haven't had sex with her?
Not even dignifying that with a response, I say. The weird thing is, even though Courtney and I haven't had sex, I haven't thought that much about it. I mean, I have thought about having sex with her, of course, and I definitely want to, but I haven't thought much about the fact that we're not having it. It's just something I figure will happen when it happens. Courtney's a virgin, so obviously I'm not going to rush it.
