If you like to laugh, you must read Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple.  When 15 year old Bee claims a family trip to Antarctica as her reward for good grades, her agoraphobic mother, Bernadette, throws herself into preparations for the trip.  As one disaster follows another, Bernadette disappears, leaving her family to pick up the pieces.  You'll love the book, and you should read it before the movie (starring Cate Blanchette) opens this summer!

— Diane Savage
