Over the weekend I dove into Maria Semple's Where'd You Go, Bernadette — a book I've been meaning to read for months. I finished it less than twenty-four hours later because it's truly the sort of book you can't put down, and I was absolutely charmed by the narrator, Bee.
In it, Bee's described as a person with "grit and poise" — isn't that just perfect? It's something we all need to aim for, I think. To have both spunk and grace, both courage and sophistication.
I'm curious: What's been your favorite book of the summer?
