Where'd You Go, Bernadette

Maria Semple

Bernadette Fox is notorious.

To Elgie Branch, a Microsoft wunderkind, she’s his hilarious, volatile, talented, troubled wife.
To fellow mothers at the school gate, she’s a menace.
To design experts, she’s a revolutionary architect.
And to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best friend and, quite simply, mum.

Then Bernadette disappears. And Bee must take a trip to the end of the earth to find
her.

WHERE’D YOU GO, BERNADETTE is a compulsively readable, irresistibly written, deeply touching novel
about misplaced genius and a mother and daughter’s place in the world.

“Funny and witty but with a serious and disturbing view of a middle aged woman’s increasing isolation after she moved with her family to a new town. Told through her daughter’s investigation for her mother after she disappears, the state of her mind is gradually revealed.”
