Life on the Refrigerator Door by Alice Kuipers

Author: Alice Kuipers
Format: Hardcover

"Dear Claire, I had a stressful weekend. It would be nice to come home and not be made to feel guilty. I hope school was interesting. There's some of the chicken (which was very good, by the way) left over. See you for breakfast. I want to talk to you about something. Mom."

Beautifully told through notes left on their kitchen fridge, this is an intimate portrait of the relationship between a mother and a hard-working mother and her teenage daughter.

Stunningly sadbut ultimately uplifting, it is about being a "good mother" or a "good daughter", and is a reminder of how much can be said in so few words, if only we made the time to say them.
