Life on the Refrigerator Door: Notes Between a Mother and a Daughter by Alice Kuipers

Claire, 15, and her mother, an obstetrician, both lead busy lives. Their main communication is through notes on their refrigerator which are detailed in the novel. At first, they write about everyday things—grocery lists, chores, getting together for meals. Then, a crisis arises and the reader is let into the more private thoughts and emotions between these two people. Though slight in form, Life on the Refrigerator Door packs a punch and won’t be easily forgotten.
