Short Description for Where'd You Go, Bernadette Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her husband, she's a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow mothers in Seattle, she's a disgrace; and to 15-year-old Bee, she is a friend and mom. Then Bernadette disappears. Bee compiles e-mail messages, official documents, and secret correspondence--creating a compulsively readable and touching novel.

Reviews for Where'd You Go, Bernadette
Laugh out loud hilarious!
Did I enjoy this book: I really did.
I think comedy is probably the hardest genre to write. That’s why I really hesitated before buying this book. A lot of comedy comes across as mean, crass, or just plain stupid. This novel manages to include all three. And it’s laugh out loud hilarious.
The main character, Bernadette, is a brilliant artist/architect. Early in the novel a colleague tells her, “People like you must create. If you don’t create, Bernadette, you will become a menace to society.” Lucky for us, she has no creative outlet in Seattle and we get to laugh hilariously as she becomes a menace to society.
My two favorite parts: the mudslide at Audrey Griffin’s house and the letter from Soon-Lin which reads in part, “I’m in an Internet café in South America,, and this keypoard is so dirty and sticky and HORRIPLE and the P makes a B and the B makes a P and the comma sticks and you have to immediately hit packsbace or else the whole email will pe commas!”
If that little snippet doesn’t make you grin, don’t waste your money. I laugh every time I read it so the book was perfect for me.
Would I recommend it: Yes!
Will I read it again: I’ll probably start it again today.
