Fun book recommendation of the day
The book is a light and dry comical read. It is modern and takes place in Microsoft dominated area outside of Seattle. The main character of the book is Bernadette Fox. To her husband who is a Microsoft employee, she is a fearlessly opinionated partner; to the other mothers in her daughter's high school, she is a disgrace!; to her colleagues, she is a revolutionary architect, and to her daughter Bee, she is a best friend and Mom.
Bernadette's attitudes starts to change and she becomes more and more allergic to people in general! and a she hires a virtual assistant in India to run her most basic errands. Bernadette promisses her daughter a family trip to Antarctica, if she could ace her report card. But then right when she should deliver on her promise she disappears! To find her mother, Bee starts to compile her email messages, official documents, and secret correspondences. Bee's journey to find her mother creates a touching novel about misplaced genius and a mother and daughter's role in an absurd world.
