"Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?"
- Anne of Green Gables

Inhabiting a different person every day for a lifetime is an amazing vantage point for observing human nature.  But it's not a great vantage point for falling in love.
This is one of those rare fantasies that make real life look different.

She’s a genius. She hates Seattle, where she happens to live. She’s afraid to leave the house. She’s promised her daughter a trip to Antarctica. When Bernadette disappears, it’s up to her daughter Bee to gather tidbits about her. Poignant as those tidbits are, many of them are also hilarious. A worthy Alex Award winner.
