August 2007 Book of the Month

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.

If you like Alice Kuipers you might also like to read books by Jenny Downham, Alice Sebold and Meg Rosoff.

Synopsis

Life on the Refrigerator Door by Alice Kuipers

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 hard-working mother and her teenage daughter.

Stunningly sad but 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.

Reviews
