This book will not go down as fine literature; however, it met all of my needs as far as a reader goes. I give it two thumbs up! I may even pick up her other novel (This One Is Mine) this summer. Her author's website can be located by clicking HERE. I like the quirky look of it; in fact, I laughed loud enough for the dog to come running to see what was going on.

Where'd You Go, Bernadette
Also over Christmas break, I read Maria Semple's book Where'd You Go, Bernadette. A friend had recommended it as a perfect "vacation" book. It is a quick and easy read. The plot was interesting. Some of the characters, who reflected some of "those moms" that I know, made me laugh at their pettiness. (I love the snarkiness in this novel!) I also loved how this novel was told through intercepted emails, documents, and letters.
