The first annoying thing is when I ask Dad what he thinks happened to Mom, he always says, "What's most important is for you to understand it's not your fault." You'll notice that wasn't even the question. When I press him, he says the second annoying thing, "The truth is complicated. There's no way one person can ever know everything about another person."
Mom disappears into thin air two days before Christmas without telling me? Of course it's complicated. Just because it's complicated, just because you think you can't know everything about another person,, it doesn't mean you can't try.
It doesn't mean I can't try.
Where'd You Go, Bernadette

I'm in the mood for a fun, light read this weekend and decided on this book after reading Amy's review. So far, it seems to be the perfect choice.
