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.
Pre read: Ive wanted to read this book for a while im kind of excited.
while reading: It reminds me of a typical break up minus all the crazy secrets going on between the two of them.
summary: This book is about a road trip and all the events before it. Jordan and Courtney were an unlikely couple and they fell for each other. But before they became a couple Jordan walked in on his mom having an affair. A few weeks later he finds out that it is Courtney’s Dad that he found with his mom. So he has this big secret he’s keeping and its hurting him apart so he finally breaks up with her. Even though he really didn’t want to. Courtney is thinking he has another girlfriend when it’s not true. He was confused didn’t know how to protect her so he thought it was best. Then while on the road trip slowly everything comes out and its a long ride from florida to boston university.
overall thoughts: I like this story because it went back and forth between the two main characters point of views. It’s cool to hear both sides of the story especially since a lot of the time people get curious about what is going on in a story. I also like that it isn’t your typical break up story. You know, boy meets girl they fall in love boy cheats what ever the boy does and then girl get revenge or goes all crazy. That’s not the case though. Its has a break up story but it also has a story about how they find their way back to each other. I think that’s what I liked so much about it.
Rating: I give it a 4 out of 5
