There are two sides to every breakup.

This is Jordan and Courtney, totally in love. Sure, they were an unlikely high school couple. But they clicked; it worked. They're even going to the same college, and driving cross-country together for orientation. Then Jordan dumps Courtney -- for a girl he met on the Internet.
It's too late to change plans, so the road trip is on. Courtney's heartbroken, but figures she can tough it out for a few days. La la la -- this is Courtney pretending not to care.

But in a strange twist, Jordan cares. A lot.
Turns out, he's got a secret or two that he's not telling Courtney. 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.

I wrote this ages ago, but just posted it now.

  When I first read the synopsis of this book, I was really thrilled. I loved the idea, and I wanted to get my hands on it, like, right that second! But when I finally got to read the book, I was a bit disappointed.

  I dont know why, actually, but I felt like there was something missing. Like something should have happened, maybe? All I can say is that, I love the idea, I love the story, but I wasn't quite satisfied. It wasn't dragging or anything like that, the writing is good, but that something is stopping me from giving this a five.

  If you're looking for a fun and light roadtrip read, this is the book for you. You'll enjoy the conversation of these two, and you can read it in just one sitting. Perfect for taking your mind off things, or just to relax. :)

“People come and go, in and out of each other’s lives like it’s nothing. So I don’t know how/why this should be a big deal.”

"You should never start thinking about 'what might have been,' and you should also never start thinking about another boy when you're heartbroken over someone else.”

“Usually the hard stuff you’re forced to do makes you learn a lot.”

“Manipulating situations is one thing, but lying is another. My theory (especially with girls) is that if you don't lie, you can't be held responsible for anything bad that goes down.”
