Book Review - In The Bag by Kate Klise

About The Book:

A European vacation. A luggage mix-up. A note from a secret admirer.

Meet two single parents who think they're too busy to date.

And two teenagers who can't stop writing flirty emails.

This is a tale of connections—missed and made—in a universe that seems to have its heart set on reuniting Ms. 6B and Mr. 13C.
Webb:  I can't believe I picked up the wrong bag at the airport. My dad is never going to let me hear the end of it.

Coco:  I don't understand why Mom told me to pack my worst underwear. And now I've lost my bag? Ack!
Andrew:  I cannot stop thinking about that woman in seat 6B on the flight to Paris.

Daisy:  I don't have time to worry about the creep sitting in 13C who slipped a note in my purse. I have to find my daughter's missing bag before this ruins our vacation.

In the Bag is a smart and stylish story that explores the old-fashioned art of romance in a modern world, where falling in love can be as risky as checking a bag on an international flight. Buckle your seat belt—it's going to be a bumpy vacation!

"In The Bag" is one of the most clever novels that I have read this summer.  Written in four, yes Four, voices - the two teenagers, and the two adults - about a vacation that goes slightly off-kilter, this story is full of humor, romance, and a lot of fun!

I could really identify with the poor frazzled mom and dad as they try desperately to keep up with their highly active and intelligent teens, while trying to carve out a life of their own.

Kate Klise does a fantastic job of keeping her characters in line and her story moving along nicely - I truly admire her storytelling skills and look forward to seeing what she has up her sleeve for her next "grown-up" book.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher for review.  I was not compensated for my opinion.
