Child Protection Programme. Though Bernadette is mostly housebound she delegates the task of making their arrangements to a personal assistant in India, Manjula. Because she is housebound, Bernadette has an ongoing feud with some of the mothers at Bee's private school with the main instigator being her neighbor Audrey Griffin. Audrey accuses Bernadette of running over her foot with her car which Bernadette does not dispute, though it is untrue. Bee also learns that her mother was once a famous architect, winner of a MacArthur "Genius" Grant because of her creation of the 20 Mile house, so called because it was made from material sourced from within 20 miles of the home.
After she won the grant, Bernadette sold the house, only to belatedly realize it had been sold to a hostile neighbour who demolished the home as soon as he obtained it. After the defeat Bernadette moved to Seattle where she had four miscarriages before Bee.
She reveals to him Bernadette's "attacks" on Audrey, causing him to question whether to admit Bernadette to a psychiatric institution. Elgin arranges for an intervention with Bernadette at the dentist to reveal these facts to her, but because of a mistake the unsuccessful intervention happens at their home with the FBI and police involved.
In the middle of the intervention Bernadette goes to the washroom and disappears. Bee has a place at Choate , and in the aftermath of Bernadette's disappearance she is sent to the school early.
Soo-Lin reveals to Audrey that she is pregnant with Elgin's child and he has bought them a family home. Elgin and Soo-Lin learn that Bernadette did take the trip to Antarctica herself and go there to confront her only to have her disappear again. During this time Soo-Lin also reveals to Audrey that her life is miserable and that the pregnancy is a result of a drunken one night stand between her and Elgin, who completely regrets the incident.
At Choate, Bee receives a package that contains the bulk of the correspondence used in the novel up to that point.
‘Where’d You Go, Bernadette?’ Review: A Bestseller Lost in Translation – Rolling Stone
It is revealed that after discovering that the accusations she levelled against Bernadette were going to result in her being hospitalized, Audrey helped her escape from her house, showed her all the correspondence between Soo-Lin and her husband, stayed silent when Bernadette decided to go to Antarctica in the hopes that she would be able to speak privately to Elgin and Bee there, and sent the package containing all the correspondence to Bee, in the hopes that Bee would understand what happened with Bernadette.
Bee is kicked out of Choate, in part because of the manuscript she is putting together. She guilts her father into going on the trip to Antarctica with her in the name of closure though she secretly believes her mother is hiding there. I have four older brothers, so from a very young age I took their coats and put them with a feminine dress - I like the combination of them. I never used to wear floral or dresses: I used to wear black trousers and white T-shirts, so for me it was a challenge to design prints and dresses that I would wear.
You have to try them on.

Otherwise I wear everything, but I will wear it differently to my daughter. Charlotte : I feel like my mum has always experimented a lot, and she was never scared to wear anything. But also, from Antwerp, I love Dries van Noten for very good coats and shoes. I have a lot of them and they go well with our dresses. Charlotte: I like discovering young brands like Jacquemus, and the other day I bought a dress from Molly Goddard.

Charlotte: I think you need to have those key pieces, that perfect coat, perfect pair of shoes, perfect dress for when you have an occasion. Clothes are also a good souvenir. She knows that once I wear something of hers I fall in love. Bernadette: Charlotte wears a 35 shoe, and I wear a 37 - we have small feet. I used to wear a 36, and she took my shoes then. Bernadette: I like to wear our dresses with big earrings, and I try to have a bit of fun with the shoes, like fluffy shoes from Miu Miu.
Bernadette: Keep it easy and simple - and comfortable. C harlotte: I had two ear piercings done when I was 18, I think, and I fainted - they gave me a lollipop with my legs in the air!
