I have got to say... loved this plot, holy cows of Narnia. I loved how Kelsey was so relate-able and Isaac was so lovable. A good read.

This is the third book by Lauren Barnholdt that I've read, and I have to say that while I generally really like her characters, there is always something missing in the story for me. Two-Way Street felt like the entire plot was implausible in pretty much every possible way, and I liked Sometimes It Happens more, but I hate books where the bff is shown as a bitch and the bff. I liked The Thing About Truth the most out of all three books, but I felt like the drama wasn't as big a deal as it was made out to be, and then the event happens so quickly that the drama is done in a flash (the first event is described in like two sentences). I could have forgiven it a little more if once we found out what the big deal WAS, then the drama got dragged out a little bit, because the resolution was wrapped up in about a chapter after we find out what is going on in the first place. And while it wraps up on the romantic level, there is one HUGE question I have about the practical life level, and I want it answered!! For a full review, head to my blog at OboeChica Books (so long and thanks for all the fish).

I actually really liked this book. Kelsey was really entertaining, Isaac was irritating, and the entire story was good. However, going back and forth between past and present and Kelsey and Isaac's point of view was a little confusing, and the general storyline has been done so many times. Overall, I would recommend this book if you want a light, fun read with a little romance and suspense.

“The thing about me and books is that whichever one I’m reading always reminds me of whatever’s happening in my life during that time.”
