The Lovereading4Kids comment

Beautifully told through notes left on the kitchen fridge, here is an intimate glimpse into the lives of a mother who has just discovered she’s got cancer, and her teenage daughter. This tragic but ultimately uplifting debut novel explores what being a ‘good mother’ or a ‘good daughter’ really means. It is a reminder of how much can be said in so few words, if only we made the time to say them. It’s utterly compelling and totally unputdownable for parent and teenager alike.

Synopsis

Life On The Refrigerator Door by Alice Kuipers

Mom,

I'm going to bed.

Claire


'Life on the Refrigerator Door' is told exclusively through notes exchanged by Claire and her mother, Elizabeth, during the course of a life-altering year. Their story builds to an emotional crescendo when Elizabeth is diagnosed with breast cancer.

Stunningly sad but ultimately uplifting, this is a clever, moving, and original portrait of the relationship between a daughter and mother. It is about how we live our lives constantly rushing, and never making time for those we love. It is also an elegy to how much can be said in so few words, if only we made the time to say them.

Reviews

Very original and touching -- Joanne Harris

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
