CANCELLED: REFRESHING READS
Where’d You Go Bernadette? by Maria Semple
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 her best friend and, simply, Mom. But then she vanishes. The book is both hilarious and touching, skewering helicopter parents, high tech, and self-improvement cultures – but also touching on mother-daughter relationships, family dynamics and creativity.
“I heard this book was being made into a movie and I wanted in on it! I love the book-movie comparison. The book was quite popular when it was first released, and at the heart of the story, a mother, who has lost her way and looks to escape, can speak to anyone who has felt like they have been stuck in a never ending loop.” – Shannon
