Where'd You Go, Bernadette
A NovelDownloadable Audiobook - 2012
Then Bernadette disappears. It began when Bee aced her report card and claimed her promised reward: a family trip to Antarctica. But Bernadettes 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 daughters role in an absurd world.
From Library Staff
An offbeat and original story filled with quirky characters, Where'd You Go, Bernadette follows an eighth grade genius as she attempts to track down her missing agoraphobic mother. The plot seems convoluted, but the engaging writing style guides you through the story to a heartfelt end.
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
Where'd You Go, Bernadette is one of the quirkiest books of the year. It is a satire of the rich and the lifestyles of Seattle and Microsoft, but is dead on funny. Told through the voice of Bernadette's teenage daughter Bee (short for Balashnika) and vairous e-mails, text messages and other communications. Hysterical!
