Jen Doll weaves alternating viewpoints from 3 teens together. You learn what a MacGuffin is (a really neat literary trick) along with the 3 teens. If you're a lit geek like me, you'll be fascinated by the concept and recognize its use in many classic stories you've read. It's not until part-way through that you realize this entire book is itself based upon a MacGuffin. Curious? Enjoy a great YA story? This is your book!

I really enjoyed this book set in a store that resellls (sells?) unclaimed baggage. Doris and Grant are the locals with Nell being the new girl from Chicago, and everyone has some more and less obvious struggles,m or dare I say BAGGAGE? to work through. I liked the different points of view, and setting it in Alabama added some extra struggle. Definitely worth reading.

Set in a store, Unclaimed Baggage, that sells items from airline baggage that was never picked up, the story is told by three teens that work in the store, . Each has recently lost something very important to them. Doris has lost her Aunt in a weird water accident, Nell has lost her friends and boyfriend when she had to move with her family to Alabama, and Grant has lost his star football player status to alcohol. Can each find what they need at Unclaimed Baggage?
