Flynn: At first we were almost strangers. But ever since I moved to New York, Amos was the one person I could count on. And together we were there for Poppy. (I mean, what kind of parents leave their kid to be raised by a nanny?) I just didn’t expect to fall for him—and I never expected him to leave us.

Amos: I thought I was the only one who felt it. I told myself it was because we were spending so much time together—taking care of Poppy and all. But that night, I could tell she felt it, too. And I freaked out—you’re not supposed to fall for your stepsister. So I ran away to boarding school. I should have told her why I was leaving, but every time I tried, it felt like a lie.

One missed flight was about to change their lives forever…


8 Ideas on How to Spend Your Layover:

I might be a weirdo but I actually like layovers, as long as it isn’t a mad dash to just change planes. Nor do I want to be stranded in a city for a few days, but I can see how Flynn & Amos make the most of their layover. For me, I like a good 2+ hours to explore the airport. So I am going to pepper you with my ideas of how to spend your airport layovers!

1. Find the local gift shop. I love looking at the city branded merchandise…even if I don’t have a need to buy anything.

2. Find a place to eat, have a drink, and dive back into that awesome book I’m reading.

3. Buy some bottled water and a snack for the next leg of my trip. Having food allergies means I can never eat airplane snacks.

4. I usually want to find a seat with a electric outlet or charger and has some comfort, but I also want to be around the hustle & bustle to do some serious people watching. Of course you then must share on social media what you are experiencing.

5. Clearly, I have to duck into the bookstore to see which of my favorite books are on the shelves.

6. Explore the airport (as far as you can go without security issues) I love the amazing art exhibits that are in most larger airports.

7. Most of the time I search for a Starbucks, have to have my soy chai tea latte, and then go find that comfy chair to read in once I have my tea.

8. If it was a long and grueling flight, I highly recommend finding the express spa, and getting that 30 minute neck & shoulder rub.

Have you done anything awesome on a layover? Did you see something amazing while waiting for your flight? Did you leave the airport? Tell me some stories in the comments!

    We usually do puzzle books or read magazines together. Also we go over our travel plans. Love this cover.

    During layovers I love to head for the gift shops and just look. I also enjoy getting a hot coffee or tea and then catching up on social media and read on my Kindle.
