Where'd You Go BernadetteDownloadable Audiobook - 2012
From Library Staff
To her Microsoft-guru husband, Bernadette'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 her 15-year-old, she is a best friend and, simply, Mom. Then Bernadette disappears.

Super fun read in an interesting format. I thought reading emails, documents, notes, etc. would leave me with jumpy narrative, but I found the trail of the story easy to follow and set a fast pace. I loved the quirky characters and the setting of Seattle.
A funny, strange and scathing take on Seattle and motherhood. The narrator is ostensibly Bernadette's perfect daughter, Bee, though much of the story is told through memos, letters, and email and the writers of those epistles are definitely not to be trusted.

" One of the main reasons I don't like leaving the house is because I might find myself face-to-face with a Canadian. Seattle is crawling with them. You probably think, U.S./Canada, they're interchangeable because they're both filled with English-speaking, morbidly obese white people. Well Manjula, you couldn't be more mistaken."-Excerpt from an email Bernadette sent to her virtual assistant Manjula
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!
