Where'd You Go, Bernadette? by Maria Semple is being passed around the teachers at our school. We are not sharing this with our students. I teach at a school just north of Seattle where this story is set. Bernadette has disappeared and her young daughter sets out to find her using letters, emails, and legal documents as clues.
Those of us who work in schools will find the exchanges between the parents of an exclusive school hilarious. I wondered if someone had camped out in our parking lot at parent pick up time for one scene.
I just had to recommend a great summer read.
