Where’d You Go, Bernadette? by Maria Semple


Brilliant, eccentric, and opinionated–Bernadette Fox doesn’t quite fit with her fellow private school moms or the other Seattle Microsoft spouses. After she goes missing there are lots of theories but no trace of the singular Bernadette. 15-year-old Bee, Bernadette’s daughter, attempts to locate her mother by collecting emails, letters, invoices, and other random correspondence. As she sifts through them a clearer picture of who her mother really was begins to form.
