Two Way Street/ Lauren Barnholdt

Two-Way Street - Lauren Barnholdt

2 stars 

 

Let's just say- I didn't finish this book in 2 days because I liked it. 

Okay, so I promised myself I wouldn't focus only on the negative so here are the few things I did like- first of all, the writing was clear and I didn't get confused at all by the P.O.V changes and all the flashbacks. I guess Lauren tried her best to show us how teenagers' emotion can go crazy fast, but it just felt a little fake and silly.

 

I didn't like the main character at all. Although I understand how the things that happened to her throughout the story affected her feelings and actions, but still, too often I thought she was either being a drama queen, rude, selfish, or a hypocrite. 

 

At first I thought I liked Jordan a little better because he explained why he did the things he did, but then I realized he was no better than her, trying to save his own ass and thinking only about himself and not caring who he hurt in the process. 

 

Not to mention, the characters were in love with themselves and extremely shallow- a terribly annoying stereotype about teenagers. 

 

To sum up, I didn't completely enjoy this book, but it is definitely up to you to decide for yourself- this is just my opinion- maybe I expected too much. 

 

Read it and let me know what YOU think,
