Love and guilt 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 twentysomething 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.

These stories will make you laugh, cry, and call your mother, daughter, and all your girlfriends.

Enjoyable short essays about mothers, daughters, pets, and other topics. Mother and daughter alternately read their essays. Good road trip audio book because it's funny and enjoyable for all ages.

I loved this book and I don't even have a daughter! Kinda wish I did though after reading this. I laughed out loud at Lisa's descriptions about aging. Really enjoyed it and will look for others by her (or her daughter, for that matter).

Mother and daughter take turns reading their humorous essays about life, family and relationships. Enjoyed it a lot.

Lisa Scotoline and daughter Fransesca are a bundle of laughs in "meet me at the emotional baggage claim." Nothing is sacred and nothing escapes their acerbic pen. When I say to myself, "I wish I'd written that," I know I really loved the book:-) This book defines what a mother daughter relationship is all about.

I like the authors' style of writing in this book; she/they (mother and daughter) are both very metamorphic. It's very amusing.
