Book Review: In the Bag

Goodreads rating: 4/5 stars
my rating: awww
pages: 306 (paperback)
This was a really cute story told from the points of view of four different people. There’s mom, Daisy, going on vacation in Paris. Along for the ride is her teenage daughter, Coco. Somewhere else on the plane is single dad, Andrew, who is immediately smitten with Daisy. And his son, Webb. They’re on their way to Spain so Andrew can set up an art show.
While picking up their luggage the kids accidentally switch bags while Andrew does something completely out of character—slipping the beautiful Daisy a note in her bag.
The story is told through alternating characters as Coco and Webb become friends through email and scheme to finally meet. Andrew wrestles with his spontaneous actions at the airport when Daisy suddenly shows up at his show to cater and doesn’t know who he is.
The love stories of parents and teens are kind of predictable but it was still a fun read with a lot of misunderstandings and great dialogue.
The beginning was kind of slow and felt like a giant infodump to set up the main story but once I got past that I got into it. The kids’ story completely balanced out the adults’ story and showed that no matter what age you are you are still stupid when it comes to the opposite sex.
Definitely a sweet awww book.
