“I recently read Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple, and it pretty much knocked my socks off. Uniquely written and wryly funny, this novel is about what happens when an eccentric artist/mother suddenly vanishes and her teen daughter is left to figure out why. All I can say is once you begin it, you’d best clear your schedule: you won’t want to put it down until it’s done.”
Sarah Dessen, author of What Happened to Goodbye and the upcoming The Moon and More.
Dessen appears at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Books & Books, 265 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables. Buy a copy of What Happened to Goodbye at any Books & Books location and get one ticket to the event.
