Where'd You Go, Bernadette is the unabridged audiobook rendition of unique novel (which has been adapted into a major motion picture starring Cate Blanchett) about a nuclear family with complicated connections and hidden secrets. When fifteen-year-old Bee earns a family trip to Antarctica as a reward for her stellar grades, her agoraphobic mother Bernadette tries to prepare for travel. But after years of attempting to adapt to life in Seattle, Bernadette is on the brink of total collapse. Disasters pile up, Bernadette disappears, and Bee and her father are left in the lurch. Bee tries to piece together what happened and why through emails, invoices, school memos, and more. Poignant, profound, and superbly performed by Kathleen Wilhoite, Where'd You Go Bernadette is highly recommended for both personal and public library audiobook collections. 9 CDs, 9.5 hours.
