Where’d You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple

Looking for a quirky summer read? Want some hilarious characters?  Need a Seattle setting to help you forget how miserably hot it is outside?  Well I present to you Where’d You Go Bernadette.  Bernadette is a fierce mother of protagonist Bee, crazy to her neighbors, and bizarre wife to her Microsoft-guru husband Elgie.  Bernadette goes missing and twelve year old Bee makes it a point to figure out where she went and why she left.  The style of this novel is so interesting that it keeps you constantly reading.  This would be a good summer bookclub book, and a great book to pass along with friends.
