Book ~ "Life on the Refrigerator Door: Notes Between a Mother and Daughter" - Alice Kuipers (2007)

From Amazon.com ~ Claire and her mother are running out of time, but they don't know it. Not yet. Claire is wrapped up with the difficulties of her bourgeoning adulthood—boys, school, friends, identity; Claire's mother, a single mom, is rushed off her feet both at work and at home. They rarely find themselves in the same room at the same time, and it often seems that the only thing they can count on are notes to each other on the refrigerator door. When home is threatened by a crisis, their relationship experiences a momentous change. Forced to reevaluate the delicate balance between their personal lives and their bond as mother and daughter, Claire and her mother find new love and devotion for one another deeper than anything they had ever imagined.

I'd read a recommendation of this book on someone's blog recently.

It's a really quick read (I read it in an hour or so). The style is interesting as it's made up of notes stuck to the fridge. I wasn't expecting it to be as deep as it was.

I'd definitely recommend this book.
