Staff Reviews


When Bobby, Will and I all love a novel, you know something unusual is
going on. In this case it's a funny, edgy, good-hearted send-up of all
things Seattle; in particular a badly-located, upper-crust private
school. But behind all the cleverness is a really touching, often
hilarious story about an off-kilter but loving family. Add a little
adventure, a little infidelity, the gradual revealing of the secrets of
the back-story, and you have a very satisfying read. I became quite
attached to this family of three and I'm hoping for a sequel.

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.
