RED HOT BOOK OF THE WEEK: Meet Me at Emotional Baggage Claim
With Thanksgiving just days away, New York Times bestselling authors Lisa Scottoline and her daughter Francesca Serritella's witty collection of essays about motherhood and daughterhood is a celebration of family and our obvious pick for our Red Hot Book of the Week.
New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline and her daughter Francesca Serritella have teamed up again, this time with a collection of hilarious essays about motherhood, daughterhood and just about everything in between. Their previous collaborations, My Nest Isn't Empty, It Just Has More Closet Space and Best Friends, Occasional Enemies: The Lighter Side of Life as Mother and Daughter — inspired by their weekly column, Chick Wit, for the Philadelphia Inquirer — are also incredibly witty and entertaining.
About Meet Me at Emotional Baggage Claim
Many women will be able to relate to Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Serritella's mother-daughter-turned-best-friends bond. This collection of essays is about their relationship now that Lisa is an empty-nester living in the suburbs and Francesca is a twenty-something living in the city, and how they're learning to keep their bond tight even though they live apart.
Lisa must learn how to love her daughter while still respecting her personal boundaries. They debate many topics, from how to properly pack dishes (hysterical!) to when you need a coat (even in the summer, apparently) and dating do's and don'ts — no matter how old you are.
As you read this book, you'll be inspired to call your mom, your sister or your best friend and share a good laugh. You'll learn that even though you have a difference of opinion, you can still get along. You'll learn that mothers and daughters can also be best friends. You'll learn, from a mother's and a daughter's perspective, how it feels to have your daughter move out of the house and start her own life.
You will LOL and maybe even shed a few tears as you immerse yourself in this heartwarming and hilarious series of stories. And when you're done, don't forget to tell your mom or your daughter you love her!
