Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple

Where'd You Go Bernadette

I’m happy to jump on the praise bandwagon with this one!  This is one of those books where reading about story line won’t necessarily draw you in, but I promise that once you begin the first chapter of this book, you’ll be hooked!

Bee is a bright teenager who attends an elite middle school in Seattle.  Her father is a bigwig at Microsoft and her mother, Bernadette, is a famous architect now living a reclusive life as a stay-at-home mom.  They live in a crumbling mansion that was once a former dormitory, and battle a crazy neighbor and school parents, whom Bernadette refers to as “gnats.”  The chaos begins when the family plans a trip to Antarctica (a reward for Bee’s perfect academic record).

This is a fun, hugely entertaining novel, and not to be missed!  So glad I picked it up!
