*Soon to be a major motion picture starring Cate Blanchett* A whip-smart, hysterical dramedy about a family in crisis after the disappearance of its brilliant, misanthropic matriarch. Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her Microsoft-guru husband, she's a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she's a disgrace; to design mavens, she's a revolutionary architect, and to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best friend and, simply, Mom. Then Bernadette disappears. It began when Bee aced her report card and claimed her promised reward: a family trip to Antarctica. But Bernadette's intensifying allergy to Seattle--and people in general--has made her so agoraphobic that a virtual assistant in India now runs her most basic errands. A trip to the end of the earth is problematic. To find her mother, Bee compiles email messages, official documents, secret correspondence--creating a compulsively readable and touching novel about misplaced genius and a mother and daughter's role in an absurd world.

Where Did You Go, Little Brother? is Linda Galante’s second published book. Her first book, Still Warmed by Your Love, is a compilation of letters she wrote to her son, Michael, after he died in October 2010. The letters were a way of dealing with her immense grief and became a source of comfort and healing. Michael’s death also became the inspiration for this second book. Recognizing there are few books available to help children deal with the pain and sadness of losing a loved one, she wrote Where Did You Go, Little Brother? using her two children, Lauren and Michael, as inspiration. Where Did You Go, Little Brother? contains a toolbox of ideas for helping children of all ages deal with grief, with the difficulty of understanding death, and with the feelings of anger, sadness and being scared that arise when dealing with loss of a loved one. As with her other book, this book is also about hope. It is Linda Galante’s hope that with this book she can help children find acceptance of the unexplainable, continuation of love beyond death, and a path to healing.
