Life on the Refrigerator Door

Fiction by Alice Kuipers.

Life on the Refrigerator Door: Notes Between a Mother and Daughter, a novel

I got this book because I was looking for a different novel by the same author. The library did not have that one; it had this one instead.

So I did not know what to expect with this book. It turns out that it's exactly what it says on the cover: "notes between a mother and her daughter." The author tells the story entirely through notes left on a refrigerator between two people. It's an interesting idea, but the execution of it is problematic. How much information can go on a post-it, after all?

If you're looking for something you can read all the way through in an hour or two, this is it. However, I usually prefer a story that is more in-depth.
