From the Publisher
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.
