The iTunes June Audiobook of the Month is Maria Semple’s Where’d You Go, Bernadette. It’s a story about a complex rebel character, Bernadette, who once inadvertently caused a mudslide to avoid a social engagement — weird and interesting.

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’d You Go, Bernadette is the iTunes Audiobook of the Month and available for $5.95, which is also available in iBooks format ($4.99).

Of course, Amazon has Where’d You Go, Bernadette in paperback ($13.49, Prime) and Kindle format ($9.99).
