Book description:

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.

Review:

I was up until midnight over the summer reading this book. It is witty, hilarious, and well plotted. I don’t think I have ever laughed out loud so many times while reading. This author has the ability to take on the topic of mental illness and weave it into the tender relationship between a mother and daughter. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a heart warming, clever and creative read! On a side note, it made me want to visit Alaska:)
