Where’d You Go, Bernadette? by Maria Semple (2012, fiction)
When her opinionated, quirky architect mom Bernadette goes missing, her teenage daughter Bee searches to the ends of the earth to find her. She compiles email messages, official documents, secret correspondence, creating a touching novel about a family coming to terms with who they are, and the power of a daughter’s love for her imperfect mother.

The Sound of Gravel by Ruth Wariner (2016, memoir)
A riveting, deeply-affecting true story of one girl’s coming of age in a polygamist cult. Ruth Wariner was the 39th of her father’s 42 children. Growing up on a farm in rural Mexico, Ruth lives in a ramshackle house without indoor plumbing or electricity. At church, preachers teach that God will punish the wicked by destroying the world and that women can only ascend to Heaven by polygamy and giving birth to as many children as possible.
