    Story
    (2405)

    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.

    S says: "One of my top 10 listens of the year!"

    Story
    If you could sum up Where'd You Go, Bernadette in three words, what would they be?

    Fresh, hilarious, heart-breaking.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Where'd You Go, Bernadette?

    The mudslide destroying the neighbor's home.


    What does Kathleen Wilhoite bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Fabulous characterization of the precocious narrator, B, plus warmth and humor that make the story come alive.


    If you could take any character from Where'd You Go, Bernadette out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    B!


    Any additional comments?

    Most enjoyable audiobook experience in many, many years. Would love to hear more of Kathleen Wilhoite's work.
