From the bestselling mother/daughter writing duo comes another hilarious collection of essays about  motherhood, daughterhood, womanhood, and  “does this hood look good on me?”

Love and tomato sauce are thick in the Scottoline/Serritella household, and Lisa and Francesca’s mother-daughter turned best-friends bond will strike a familiar note to many.  But now that Lisa is a suburban empty-nester and Francesca is an independent twenty-something in the big city, they have to learn how to stay close while living apart.  How does a mother’s love translate across state lines and over any semblance of personal boundaries?  You’ll laugh out loud as they face-off over the proper technique for packing dishes, the importance of bringing a coat in the summertime, and the dos and don’ts of dating at any age.  Add feisty octogenarian Mother Mary to the mix, and you have a Molotov cocktail of estrogen, opinions, and fun. 

Booklist raved that Best Friends, Occasional Enemies was "one big gabfest with your best girlfriends, whatever their age," and now, in Meet Me at the Emotional Baggage Claim, the mother-daughter duo of Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Serritella continue the conversation with more hilarious and honest tales of life inside an ordinary, extraordinary family. These stories will make you laugh, cry, and call your mother, daughter, and all your girlfriends.

Meet Me at Emotional Baggage Claim
By Lisa
 

I was just talking with a friend of mine, who says she has to nag her kids every time they leave for a trip. She nags them to pack their bags, to get ready on time, and to not forget their sneakers. She feels bad for nagging them, and all of it takes me back to when Daughter Francesca was ten years old and we had one of the best fights of our life.
And yes, you can have a good fight with your daughter.
If you’ve read me before, you know that I think fighting is healthy and normal, and a good fight is when you learn something
