Life on the Refrigerator Door by Alice Kuipers

In Life on the Refrigerator Door, Claire, a teenage girl, and her mother, a single parent, lead busy lives. Luckily, they have found a way of communicating that works for them…notes on the refrigerator door.

The story is told exclusively through these notes. An interesting and unique concept! I enjoyed reading it. The ending was especially touching.

However, I didn’t like this book as much as I thought I would. I generally love quirky little books like this, but something about this book didn’t grab me. There were a few notes that seemed unrealistic. That is, some contained information that I didn’t think one would include in a note. Maybe that’s just me. I also had trouble connecting a few of the notes and had to go back a couple of times to fill in the story.

That being said, I still enjoyed reading the book and I’m looking forward to reading more works by this author.
