Life on the Refrigerator Door
You and your mom hardly ever see each other, but you love each other very much, so you stay in touch the easiest way you know how. By jotting down a quick sticky note to each other as you run out, and sticking it to the fridge. Sometimes it's a grocery list. Sometimes it's news about a date. Sometimes it's a complaint, we never see each other any more! But there's plenty of time for that later, right? Then one day, there's bad news on the fridge that changes everything.
Curious? Life on the Refrigerator Door by Alice Kuipers is a fast read, because it's told completely through these notes.Claire's story isn't an easy read, though. Some might even call it heartbreaking.
