Book description:

The only person poetry-loving Cali Monroe hates more than herself is Logan Waters, the geeky kid who lives in the dorm building next to hers.

Ever since Cali’s parents told her she would amount to nothing, she has felt entirely inadequate. Friendless and alone, she takes on the mean girl role in hopes it will make her feel better–and Logan serves as the perfect target. He infuriates her with his obnoxiously long lashes, his all too perfect dimpled smile, and his complete lack of personality outside of his intelligence. It doesn’t hurt that he’s part of the reason her brother is dead, either. So Cali hates him, and he returns the favor. Thus, their prank-filled, insult-driven rivalry is born, and torturing Logan quickly becomes the highlight of her life.

But when Cali’s parents set them up on a blind date, she begins to realize Logan might not be as boring as she always thought. He shares her love of poetry, takes a sadistic pleasure in making fun of crepes, and he makes her blush when he calls her smile pretty.

And hey, maybe those long lashes of his aren’t that obnoxious after all..

Review:

This was not the kind of story I expected from L.M. Augustine. After reading Click to Subscribe, I imagined another bubbly, quirky and sweet read that made me giggle all the way through. I didn’t get that with this book. Two Roads is strong, passionate and bittersweet. It’s the kind of story you want to read because it’s about overcoming hurdles and finding a perfect, happy ending. THAT’S what I got with Two Roads.

Cali Monroe has been grieving the death of her brother, Ben, for four years now, and her way of handling her emotions is focusing her attention to the one thing that makes her happy (even though she doesn’t know it yet): Logan Waters. 😉 Logan was Ben’s best friend and used to be a friend to Cali. He’s dorky, adorable and has a wicked sense of humor. That’s what I love about L.M.’s book characters. In both novels, you’re introduced to these eccentric personalities that make you smile. 🙂

Logan and Cali go back in forth with playing pranks on each other, and saying “I hate you,” when we all know those aren’t the three little words they’re really saying. The hidden subtext is definitely there. I really enjoyed reading about their pranks, and waiting to see how they would one-up one another.

This was a wonderful read that I didn’t want to put down. You’ll want to hug Cali and squeeze Logan, and maybe snatch his glasses and run away! 😉
