Book Review: Where'd You Go, Bernadette?
She loves and adores her daughter, Bee, her one connection to the real world, and yet she's encouraging Bee to go to boarding school.
A mass of contradictions, Bernadette Fox is a unique character, and after she disappears on a trip to Antarctica we find out she was a MacArthur grant genius in architecture. Her daughter is sure her mother is still alive and pours through various emails, correspondence, and goes on a trip with her Dad to Antarctica. Ultimately, the family discovers a great deal about themselves, family dynamics, and stifled creativity.
