Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple

Told in a sequence of emails and the narration of Bernadette's teenage daughter Bee, we meddle into the life of an eccentric, gutsy and excessively feisty woman that is Bernadette Fox.

Discover the reasons behind her sudden disappearance and find out if Bernadette is certainly gone for good.


Where'd You Go Bernadette is undeniably, easily and absolutely one of my favorite books! This is my kind of book. Witty, humorous, satirical, sarcastic and 'bitchy'. Yes, bitchy! And not the bad kind that you hate, it's the kind that you inexplicably adore. Bernadette is truly a hell of a character.

 I conclude that Maria Semple is an enthusiastic storyteller. The novel screams of literary but it was so interactive and fun that it seems to be juvenile fiction to most. Although, I'll always be proud of saying that the best books are in the YA genre.
