*Soon to be a major motion picture starring Cate Blanchett*
A whip-smart, hysterical dramedy about a family in crisis after the disappearance of its brilliant, misanthropic matriarch.
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.

Where'd you go Bernadette
I loved this book! Bee was way more intelligent than any 8th grader that I know but, having two very intelligent parents it's realistic and understandable. And who knew that Audrey could step outside her box of superiority and see herself for who she really was. I never did end up liking Soo-Lin, once the victim always the victim. I loved the ending, I could almost guess it but was still unsure of how it would end. Very entertaining read that kept me flipping the pages. It left me wanting more.
I read this book in less than 24 hours. Couldn't put it down. Great quirky characters and a quick pace. Fun whodunit.
Fantastic book from start to finish. The beginning, like any other, was slow, yet makes more sense if you reread the first few pages. I can’t wait for the movie!
