    1. An ARC has been kindly given by Random House Children via Netgalley in exchange for an honest opinion4 starsWhat a super cute book! I read this story like I would drink hot cocoa on a winter day. I read it in one sitting because everything worked perfectly well together. I loved this bitter sweet story about a family with most of the time absent parents where the kids stick together and create their own home feel.It really was kids against adult.And what kids!You have little Poppy around ten yea [...]

    2. *Huge thanks to Crown Books for sending me a copy of the Layover*DNF @ 10%Normally, I don't DNF books I am sent for review, but Layover is one of the few exceptions because of its rampant "not like other girls" attitude & strangely excessive use of the word "dumb". In every POV, there were instances of it. "I've never really cared much for dancing. The way all the girls try so hard to not seem self-conscious, while desperately trying to get everyone's attention. It's all so forced it makes m [...]

    3. Title: LayoverAuthor: Amy Andelson & Emily MeyerGenre: Young AdultPublication date: February 6, 2018Just like the book, I'll keep this review rather 'simple'. I relatively use the word 'simple' because it was a simple book to read- no unnecessary hoo-ha. It was a fun, quick book. Exactly something you'd pick on a layover :)It's 'almost' a coming of age book maybe?It's told in the POV of three people- Flynn, Amos and Poppy.I enjoyed this book but there was just something missing. I am not sur [...]

    4. **You can see this full review and more at Book Briefs: bookbriefs**Layover is a young adult contemporary novel by authors Amy Andelson & Emily Meyer. I love a great sibling story, which is exactly what I got with Layover. Layover follows three step-siblings- Amos, Flynn & Poppy. Layover felt refreshing and delightfully "not canned". I really enjoyed the emotional themes explored as well as the dynamic between the characters. There is a romance as well, but it didn't take over the story [...]

    5. 1.5 Stars The characters aren't well characterized and doesn't have a consistent plot, the trip is interesting and some scenes are entertaining but it wasn't what I expected Full Review to Come

    6. This was interesting, because I kept expecting it to go one direction and it kept going another. My overall impression is that it had all the elements of a great story, but just missed the mark.For example, the character of Poppy should be cute and endearing. And she is sweet, but there was just that little something missing that would have made me fall in love with her. I kept cringing at the decisions of Flynn, but it wasn't because I was invested in her. Amos wasn't really likable and seemed [...]

    7. I must admit, I was sucked in by the cover and synopsis. I am always up for a good forbidden romance type of thing, but I was pleasantly surprised to find there was a lot more to this story than I anticipated.•Pro: At its heart, this is a sibling story, and I really enjoyed watching all three of them interacting together. I especially liked seeing the older siblings dote on their little sister, because she really needed to shown she was special. •Pro: Poppy, the youngest sibling, just lit up [...]

    8. I really did want to like it but it was lacking a lot and the plot just dragged on. 3 kids in a blended family find out their parents are getting divorced so they choose to runaway to LA to avoid the awkward divorce conversation. Mishaps, a boy, Disneyland make it semi interesting but the authors described every moment their trip without giving any character development. The teen girl, Flynn, gives up her virginity to some guy she met at camp in a 1 page set up that doesn't make sense. Her behav [...]

    9. 2 starsStep-siblings Flynn and Amos, as well as their little sister Poppy, learn of their parents' impending divorce. Flynn and Amos used to be great friends, but a spark between them sent them flying across the country, too scared to acknowledge what was happening between them.During their layover at LAX, Flynn, Amos, and Poppy all decide to ditch their family vacation and run away for a short while, landing them in all sorts of trouble that will change their lives forever.I don't really know w [...]

    10. Come visit me at smadasbooksmack/Neglected siblings Amos, Flynn and Poppy are suppose to fly to Barbados to meet their parents for a family vacation over Christmas. But when they get from New York to California for their layover, the discontent kids decide to escape from the trip and family drama and instead have a few days of freedom away from the oppression of their lives.​This review will be really short because I do not like to be negative, but I was disappointed in the story. Boy was this [...]

    11. This review (and many others) can be found at Lost in My Library. I received an eARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.This waswow. I don't DNF many books (even though I've been doing it more lately), but I just couldn't make myself finish this one. I tried! Out of the three POV characters, there was one I had strong negative feelings about, one I didn't really have much of an opinion on, and one who I really liked, and I tried to keep reading for her [...]

    12. This is an Advanced Readers Copy, received via a giveaway.This story is about a family; not a traditional family but one filled with step-brother, step sister and half-siblings. Amos, is the eldest son of Louisa and step-son of Jack. Flynn is the daughter of Jack who was forced to move from California to New York when her mother died. Then came Poppy, the daughter of both Jack and Louisa, the half-sibling of Flynn & Amos and the one person who truly made the group a family.The trio is sent [...]

    13. "Layover" is the story of step-siblings Amos and Flynn and their half-sister, Poppy. They are getting ready to go on a family vacation to Bora Bora with a layover at LAX. Poppy overheard something their parents said and tells Amos and Flynn. It upsets them so much that they decide they won't meet their parents in Bora Bora and that they will stay in their layover location, Los Angeles, instead. I had high hopes for this one but it fell sort of flat for me. This book was really just ok for me. I [...]

    14. Pros:Use of words like contrarian, acquiesced, profiteroles, and proprietary possessiveness.The idea siblings would skip the trip to Bora Bora to be together before the blended family is broken up.Setting - SoCal - gatta love mentions of La Brea, In-and-Out Burger, Disneyland, PCH. Cons: The idea that step-siblings have the hots for each other. Ew. The adult-ish actions (alcohol and drug use, sex) with the childish voices of the characters. Poppy's OCD which doesn't come up until Chapter 26. I'm [...]

    15. I don't know what to say, I'm just well, I'm a bit confused and disappointed. I thought that this story had potential, it sounded like a very fun story overall, but once I got into it ended up lacking, in both plot and characterization. I didn't really connect with the characters and waited for a development that didn't come. I also had some issues with the main relationship between Flynn and Amos. Overall, I still think that Layover was an entertaining read, but it lacked a bit too much for me [...]

    16. Received as an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. HmmmI have mixed feelings about this one. The whole thing seemed very rushed, but yet parts of it just dragged on and on. It was likened to Clueless (movie) and Tell Me Three Things (book), but it didn't really feel like either one of those (and I loved both of those so that disappointed me). It seemed like the authors wanted to address step-siblings falling in love, but yet they didn't really want to address it, so they kind of [...]

    17. So I picked this book up because the story sounded like something that I would enjoy, something that would be fun to read, cleanse my book palette if you will. What I got wasn't any of those things.I found that I just didn't care what happened to Amos of Flynn. I cared about Poppy simply because she was the youngest character, drawn into chaos with her older siblings because they don't want to face reality. I bet there are people out there that would love this book but it just wasn't for me. Tha [...]

    18. AS SEEN ON: A THOUSAND WORDS A MILLION BOOKSI received a review copy from PRH International in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own. THIS COVER IS GORGEOUS, and it's pretty much the first thing that struck me about this book. I've finished reading it, and it's STILL the thing I think about the most. What I expected this book to be about: A Meet Cute fluffy romance set in an airport due to a delayed layover. (I somehow glazed over the fact that they were st [...]

    19. This is a story about three kids taking a layover in Los Angeles instead of getting on a plane to Bora Bora where there parents are going to tell them that they are divorcing. Each chapter is told by one of the kids. Flynn has recently come to live with her father Jack after the death of her mother. She had previously spent time in New York with Jack, his wife Louisa, Louisa's son Amos, and their daughter Poppy. She is sad and still coming to terms with her mother's death. Amos left for boarding [...]

    20. Amos, Flynn, and Poppy are part of a created family, cobbled together after his father and mother divorce, and his mother marries her father after her mother's death. Poppy is the child of their union, and the youngsters have close bonds that are threatened when Poppy reveals that their parents are going to inform them of their impending breakup during a holiday trip. While their parents are already in Bora Bora, the youngsters fly from New York to Los Angeles where Flynn impulsively decides to [...]

    21. 2.5 I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange of an honest review.The description and the cover of Layover really got me even with the first glance and I think that’s a success since that’s their job, kinda. I mean it’s a freaking amazing cover. Unfortunately the problems started to show right after I started to read. First of all based on that synopsis I expected a highly different story that I actually got, alas its misleading quite a bit only loosely relating to the actu [...]

    22. Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: Choices made by the characters did not seem right. It felt more like this is what an adult would think they would choose but not what they would choose for themselves. I feel that the author did not give their characters enough credit. Check out author's other books or related books? I don't think this writing style is for me. So no I do not think I would check out this author's other works. Recommend this book? Sadly no Notes and Opinions: I am re [...]

    23. I received an ARC of Layover in return for an honest review!This was just an OK read for me. I may be too old for it. A couple of teenagers (16 & 17 years old), decide to make a run for it with their 9 year old little sister. Instead of joining their family in Bora Bora for a dreaded family holiday, they take a 3 day 'break' in Cali instead. YOLO amiright?!!Now, I was a very responsible 16 year old if I do say so myself. It's hard to relate to ANY of the decisions made in this book. They dit [...]

    24. I received an ARC from Penguin Random House in exchange for an honest review. In a broken, dysfunctional family, three half-siblings realize that their parents are getting divorced again. During a layover at LAX, Flynn, Amos and Poppy purposely miss their connecting flight and spend several days in Los Angeles by themselves.Each chapter is told by either Flynn, Amos or Poppy, and the different point of views are refreshing. In particular, the chapters with Poppy's narration are authentic and rea [...]

    25. I REALLY wanted to like this book. I wanted a deep dive into these characters and their relationships with each other. I wanted to get in their heads. I wanted great discussions of how they feel and what they mean to each other. Step sibling love is a FASCINATING topic and I wanted more of a dive into the complicated layers of that. But I feel like I didn’t get any of that. Instead of spending their layover together figuring things out, the book was about a weird meandering to a friend’s pla [...]

    26. I was able to read this ebook through NetGalley!Step siblings Amos and Flynn, along with their half sister, Poppy, find themselves on a layover in LA, trying to escape the inevitable-- their parents telling them that they are getting a divorce. They run away with the help of Flynn's crush, Neel, and try to make an adventure of it. 2 1/2 starshis book was just kind of there. Amos and Flynn seemed so one dimensional, and their love story also felt trite. Poppy was the best character, but she still [...]

    27. *spoilers*I loved the structure with the alternating perspectives and how it built the relationships between the siblings and their parents so carefully with revealing flashbacks. I also loved the dynamic between Amos and Flynn. Their lives together as friends/siblings and their attraction to each other was totally believable and really, I don't knowtender? And Poppy was just SO adorable. Her character was so sweet and spunky and I loved the insight we get into her OCD and how she views the worl [...]
