Here are Peyton and Jace, meeting on vacation. Click! It’s awesome, it’s easy, it’s romantic. This is the real deal.

Unless it isn’t. Because when you’re in love, you don’t just stop calling one day. And you don’t keep secrets. Or lie. And when your life starts falling apart, you’re supposed to have the other person to lean on.Here are Peyton and Jace again, broken up but thrown together on a road trip. One of them is lying about the destination. One of them is pretending not to be leaving something behind. And neither of them is prepared for what’s coming on the road ahead

Road trips.  Who doesn't love reading about them? I know I sure do.  They are one of my favorite plot lines out there.  There are so many places in this world to go and see so it never gets boring!  I must admit, I've never read Two Way Street.  But I plan on buying it along with my copy of this!

I loved being able to see from both Jace's and Peyton's point of view.  I also like how Barnholdt alternated from the past time to the current trip.  It definitely helps the reader to learn all about Jace and Peyton a lot more.

I must say I loved Peyton.  Yes, at some times she was whiny, but what teenager isn't? And after finding out why she wants to run away, well I can't really blame her.  If that happened to me, I'd be a little more than whiney.  I must say I didn't fall head over heels with Jace but I must say him and Peyton together were caaaauuuuuttteeeeeeee!   They were fantastic together.  I found myself always laughing with them or feeling any other emotion.

There were some times in the book though that I felt like we should of focused a little more on the road trip.  I mean the road trip only truly last twos days and I was kind of disappointed by that.  I wanted them to travel a little farther, do a little more things.  But all in all, I loved this book, and I can't wait to get my own copy.  It's a great YA contemporary that every girl needs to read.


  1. Lauren Barnholdt rocks! This is on my TBR list and I can't wait to get my hands on it. Great review!

    : )

  2. I haven't read either book nor really knew about them. I have added this to my TBR pile. I love a good road trip, even if it does last only a couple of days.
