Where'd You Go, Bernadette: A Novel

by Maria Semple

Little, Brown And Company | April 2, 2013 | Trade Paperback

4.6667 out of 5 rating. 9 Reviews
Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her Microsoft-guru husband, she''s a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she''s a disgrace; to design mavens, she''s a revolutionary architect, and to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best friend and, simply, Mom.

Then Bernadette disappears. It began when Bee aced her report card and claimed her promised reward: a family trip to Antarctica. But Bernadette''s intensifying allergy to Seattle--and people in general--has made her so agoraphobic that a virtual assistant in India now runs her most basic errands. A trip to the end of the earth is problematic.

To find her mother, Bee compiles email messages, official documents, secret correspondence--creating a compulsively readable and touching novel about misplaced genius and a mother and daughter''s role in an absurd world.

Editorial Reviews

"To say this book is quirky would be something of an understatement. It is also very funny, snarky, smart, occasionally confusing, and cleverly constructed."-Aspen Daily News
