Claire and her mother are both very busy. They exchange notes on the refrigerator door while going through the mother's struggle with breast cancer and a teenage daughter-mother relationship.
I had heard about this novel and its novel premise for a long time. It's always been on the back of my mind. Trivia: Alice Kuipers is married to Yann Martel, who wrote one of my favourite books, Life of Pi.
I read the book quite quickly because of its short format. I was very impressed that a whole story could be incorporated in such an innovative way. At the same time, I just wanted to scream at the two main characters to stop leaving notes on the refrigerator door at such a crucial time in their lives and spend a significant amount of time together.
