Where'd You Go Beradette

Where'd You Go Bernadette has been on my "to-read" list for nearly a year, so I was super excited when it was at our Little Free Library down the street. It's unlike another book I've read and I have absolutely adored it. 

Here's what Amazon has to say: "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."

I love that this book is written from the viewpoint of so many different characters and I love the different styles of writing throughout. Getting to see everyone's perspective, and how their stories intertwine add to fun of reading this book. If you haven't read it yet, it should definitely go onto your "to-read" list today!
