Fast forward many years. Bee ( the now 15 year old baby) is enrolled at Galer Street School “a place where compassion, academics and global connectitude join together to create civic-minded citizens of a sustainable and diverse planet.” This is a school where only excellence and excellent students are allowed, even if the excellent student is only " working toward excellence."
Where to start? You know THOSE MOTHERS. The ones who work incessantly at school
The story is told in a series of flashback communications, and miscues between the mothers and the people surrounding them. Oil and vinegar mix easier than these 2 women. ONE needs to control every aspect of the other and THE OTHER is mostly oblivious to anything but her daughter and husband. To say things go from bad to worse is an understatement.
Since we know from the title that Bernadette is missing, we obviously can assume someone is looking for her. Read the book and join Bee as she wades through the mess looking for either her mother or closure.
This was a quick, fast paced, smart, quirky chick lit book. Definitely worth the time investment.
