Two Way Street, Lauren Barnholdt

"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 really enjoyed this story. I've made a new blog category for it, angstfluff, to describe it. And it really reminded me of the highest quality Laguna Beach episodes. I mean that in a complimentary way, of course, seeing as I loved that show. This story also wins points from me for having a happy ending where the pretty teenagers resolve their drama and get to go blissfully off to college together.
