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...

I absolutely loved this book! I laughed, cried, swooned. Such a beautiful story about love and loss. The poetry is beautiful and touched my heart. I am usually aprehensive when it comes to men authors writing in the voice of a woman, but L.M. Augustine made Cali sound beautiful and flawed. She felt like a person I could know, and I wish I met someone like Logan! Augustine also portrays a very sensitive subject delicately and reflects through his words that time does heal all wounds.
Two Roads is amazing
Since I was very young I have had a love of poetry. Robert Frost just happens to be one of my favorites. The Road Not Taken has always held a special place in my heart.
Two Roads helped me feel that love of poetry again. I loved the struggle that Cali and Logan had. The amount of true love they had for one another was so wonderful. I felt like I was physically watching their love story being told.
I recommend this book to everyone! It's a love story for the ages. Plus, it shows you that poetry and dorks are sexy;)
