Where’d you go, Bernadette by Maria Semple

Genre:  Fiction

Published by:  Little, Brown and Company

Pages:  Hard Cover

Rating:  8 JAGS

Meet Bernadette Fox, one part architectural genius and one part social recluse. Living with her Microsoft husband and gifted fifteen-year old daughter Bee in a large home overlooking Seattle’s upper crust moms from her daughter’s school, Bernadette’s life quickly unravels because of a vacation.

After dodging mothers from the PTA on a daily basis and shopping through a virtual assistant online, Bernadette Fox simply disappears. What started as a promise to travel to Antarctica because of Bee’s excellent grades, leads to everything from a mudslide to the FBI.

Where’d you go, Bernadette is a hilarious read with a perfect combination of cheeky humor and sharp intelligence. This book is a definite keeper. It’s interestingly told from faxes and emails that keep you guessing as to who Bernadette Fox really is-and how did she just disappear. I really enjoyed this book. I cannot emphases it enough. I purposely kept the blog post short so as I wouldn’t ruin it for anyone interested in reading it. This is a definite great purchase or a gift.
