Street is about Jordan and Courtney It s a cute little are they or aren t they together romance novel Their relationship starts off while they are in high school but it doesn t last long at all Then things get really awkward because they had this plan to drive together to Boston University because that s where they are both going for college Anyways it kind of becomes predictable other than Courtney finding out the real reason why Jordan broke up with her and they end up happily dating each other in the end.You know what my one problem with this whole story was It took 3 days for them to magically fall back in love 3 days for Jordan to admit that he was in love with her in the beginning and just wasn t man enough to tell her So, of course breaking up with her was the best thing he could come up with I don t even remember, know, or care how long they were broken up for but really 3 days Besides all of that nonsense, their families are both weird and kind of messed up except for Courtney s mom Also, their friends, who were hooking up with each other, are beyond weird too.Other than that it was a quick and easy read hide spoiler Ok so let s list the pros and cons shall we Pros Keep me interested enough to read the whole book Voices and thoughts of the characters were distinctly different and portrayed real teenagers The changing of time frames and narrators was done well Main guy Jordan had his sweet moments Funny at times Now for the Cons way too much cussing I know teenagers cuss but this came off as trying too hard Jordan was basically your typical horny teenage guy that the author tried to make look sweet worked Ok so let s list the pros and cons shall we Pros Keep me interested enough to read the whole book Voices and thoughts of the characters were

know teenagers cuss but this came off as trying too hard Jordan was basically your typical horny teenage guy that the author tried to make look sweet worked only some of the time basically he still came off to me as a player Can t say I liked the main girl Courtney at all the whole MySpace thing got annoying portrayed real teenagers which frankly sometimes can be overdone and this case it was and finally what was I suppose tolearnfrom this I guess I m tired of reading teenage aimed literature, or maybe I m growing out of it I don t know, but what I really think the problem is that it wasn t anything really insightful that I could take into my own life That s what good books do and this book didn t do it for me Proceed with the caution of spoilers, although I truly don t think you ll be missing anything with this book.I m probably about to be taking what s supposed to be a light, entertaining read way too seriously Still melodrama suits the cover, the story, the characters and the writing of Two Way Street, and if the shoe fits This is the summary I imagine Barnholdt sent to publishers Keep in mind that I made this up all by my Little Self Courtney and Jordan were doing fine, fine, fine La la la, Proceed with the caution of spoilers, although I truly don t think you ll be missing anything with this book.I m probably about to be taking what s supposed to be a light, entertaining read way too seriously Still melodrama suits the cover, the story, the characters and the writing of Two Way Street, and if the shoe fits This is the summary I imagine Barnholdt sent to publishers Keep in mind that I made this up all by my Little Self Courtney and Jordan were doing fine, fine, fine La la la, this is Courtney and Jordan doing fine They got along great, they never argued, they had perfect chemistry, were both going to the same college and were absolutely, positively head over heels with one another Cue dramatic music That is cue dramatic music until Jordan breaks up with Courtney for some random slut he met on MySpace Unfortunately, their plan for travelling cross country for their college orientation is still on Why the fuck How will Courtney stand hanging around the ex she still loves for three days How will Jordan hide the secrets he s keeping from Courtney How will they be able to stand the heat festering between them If you re an avid reader, you know what happens in the end before you even begin You know that Jordan still loves Courtney and that their break up was made of misunderstandings Now clap for me someone, anyone, whether you re reading this in your car, in a bar or up high in the stars I m a poet now because I AM AN AVID READER THAT S SEEN ALMOST EVERYTHING POSSIBLE IN YA LIT AND I STILL FINISHED THE BOOK No, I m not quite sure why I was so interested in TWS, aside from my foolish hopes that it would provide some insightful thoughts, but simply focus, please, on the miracle in which I FINISHED IT cutesy smile Thanks.Let me begin with the good things about TWS it wasn t heavy and it actually became entertaining in the Point and Laugh kind of way when the novel truly hit High on the Stupidity Chart The road trip Courtney and Jordan were on was also much easier to read than the long winded, way too detailed Amy and Roger s Epic Detour, not because this book wasinteresting or anything important like that, but because I actually saw the characters in TWS interacting and bringing back their fucked up, pathetic relationship, which is something that I didn t see in AR So Bravo to Barnholdt for achieving the expected That s about it for my positives LET THE review RANT BEGIN The cover, which I know isn t in Barnholdt s realm of creating, bothered the fuck out of me I know I m about to enter Bad Reviewer Territory because I m judging the book partially by its cover, but some things need to be said Dudes, their car didn t break down, not that they drove a convertible anyway And there aren t two sides to every breakup when the person ending the relationship is lying and the other didn t want the relationship to end, which is sort of what the phrase implies OH, and Jordan is only labeled cute enough, and isn t someone who appears to be a Hercules doppelganger figure from out of Megan Meade s This cover totally misled me from what the book really is a reflection of lies, hypocritical characters, and stupid and unrealistic situations.And the whole slut tag FOR GOD S SAKE REALLY This story was so, so stupid The big secret Jordan was keeping from Courtney was tr s over dramatic and could really only be found on an old episode of the Bold and the Beautiful Why would Jordan, and this is a huge spoiler first of all, go out with a girl who s the daughter of the man he caught fucking his mother Why would Courtney, at the end, call up her dad NOT HER ACTUAL FATHER, KIDS and try to start things up again, when everything he did, every nice thing he did for her, was only to save his ass and not because he loved her Why would Courtney s parents ESPECIALLY her father because I mean, what, is he begging for his secret to come out let her go on a roadtrip with her ex boyfriend across the country, and why would Jordan still go with her, anyhow None of this makes any logical sense I have a huge issue with the characters I d like to start with the minor ones Jocelyn is a creepy stalker who doesn t trust her boyfriend and gives terrible advice Enough said B.J, noted boyfriend, would have actually been somewhat likable had he not been such a male BFF stereotype Seriously All love interest best friends are drunks or addicts, thus trying to show how superior the LI is, but also underlining how mindless that LI is because they chose an idiot to be their best friend Now, I m not saying that drunks or addicts are idiots, but I am saying that most fictional male BFFs are created stupid and addicted to something, be it drink, narcotics or sex, to show how ah may zing the romantic interest is Although I m glad Barnholdt decided to give her secondary characters page time, I am seriously disappointed in what she made of them.Onto Jordan, who is one of the worst boyfriends I think I ve ever had the displeasure of reading about This boy was complete with outrageous lies, horrid decision making skills, and no brains whatsoever Again worst boyfriend This boy, this disgusting boy, uses girls like their toys I think his mentality was use em once and drop em and lets his testosterone run the show Not only that, but he was a lying jerk who made terrible decisions, and also a typical playboy stereotype Impressionable YA readers do not be fooled by his good looks This is a boy in the shape of a man who needs a few lessons on how to properly treat a human being And I get to Courtney, and I want to gag I do This excuse for a main character is even worse than Jordan For a supposedly intelligent person, Courtney was incredibly close minded and judgmental On page one, she assumes that the girl her ex hooked up with was a slut who was scamming guys on MySpace Uh, darling, how is she a slut when it was your boyfriend who left you for her And is she a slut because she went for what she wanted Do you know the specifics on how they got together On page twenty nine, she slams Katie Shaw, who was hurt by Jordan, saying she doesn t feel bad because this girl gets around And then she says that, of course Jordan was friends with Madison, the girl he was trying to get in bed that night, because she was disgusting and did things with Kool Aid and oral AND THEN, she goes and, according to Jordan in the next chapter, grinds into him, this guy who evokes disgusting behavior, a guy who s type she just claimed the disgusting girls Uh, Courtney What the fuck If you re so smart, wouldn t you realize that you re doing the exact same thing you just claimed was gross Wouldn t you realize that you yourself are being what you consider a slut Wouldn t you come up with a synonym to disgusting Wouldn t you realize the very big, very serious problem, with slut shaming HELLO COURTNEY YOU RE A HYPOCRITICAL BITCH Yuck She left a terrible taste in my mouth And not only was she totally hypocritical, but she was also mindless, unable to think for herself, unrealistic, and stupid And now THE PARENTS Jesus, the parents Why would Courtney s dad let Courtney go on a road trip with Jordan, even after they d broken up, when his big secret could have been told Why would Courtney s mom let her go on the trip if, obviously, her boyfriend just dumped her why wouldn t she drive her herself if tickets for a flight were already sold No parent would actually force their kid to learn that lesson, especially in Courtney s father s position Completely unbelievable Barnholdt s writing was appalling She wrote her characters with absolutely no intelligent brains and wrote what, four years after this novel s release, is totally outdated Outdated This book was SO outdated Who uses MySpace any Destiny s Child BROKE UP and was old when this book came out, and yet Courtney thinks it s cool to dance to it when she judges Jordan for listening to Sir Mix A Lot Again, I point out her stupidity and hypocrisy What kind of person like this is LIKABLE I also didn t appreciate Barnholdt letting her characters off the hook with everything and also making up implausible situations to get them together Jordan was afraid that he wouldn t be accepted to BU with his unimpressive grades and poor attendance record he wouldn t and yet Barnholdt let him off the hook in order to get him in a car with Courtney Courtney s parents send her on the road trip with Jordan even after he broke her heart why would Courtney s father logically do that, or any understanding parent as Courtney s parents pleaded they were for that matter Another fish let off the hook Two Way Street is a waste of your time It s an embarrassing addition to YA contemporary books, it s filled with ludicrous characters and situations, and is truly ridiculous by the end This is not recommended, and I will not be reading anythingof Barnholdt s Ever La la la, this is me forgetting Two Way Street This may be the first road trip anti romance novel I have read and although the entire thing was very juvenile, I enjoyed it Jordan and Courtney,

many hours alone in a car with your ex I ll never be able to handle it Lol.Although I wasn t the biggest fan of the writing, I thought the entire thing w This may be the first road trip anti romance
