Life on the Refrigerator Door
by Alice Kuipers

Subtitled Notes Between a Mother and Daughter.
Published in 2007. 220 pages.

After finishing Breaking Dawn - at 756 pages - which followed closely my read of The Host - with 619 pages - this short, touching, easy-to-read book was exactly was I needed!

I was lucky enough to receive a copy of the book from Somer at SomeReads. (Thanks again, Somer!) I'd had it on my to-read list since last year, and I had included it on one of my Reading Full Circle Challenge lists. Since then the book was chosen as a Selection for the current Salt Lake County Library Reader's Choice list, which called it "a very quick read that is powerful, touching, and thought-provoking." Thus, the book qualifies for the Triple 8 Challenge in my Salt Lake County Library Reader's Choice category, and it also qualifies for my Every Month is a Holiday list in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. Not a bad list of accomplishments for an hour's worth of enjoyable reading!
