Something a little bit different...

though not a YA book.

Do you ever leave a note for your mom or dad on the fridge? If so, you might be interested in a book that is ALL notes written back and forth between a busy working mother and her teenage daughter. Do you think you could actually write a meaningful book in fridge notes?????? If you're curious, check out life on the refrigerator door, by Alice Kuipers. Here's the description:

"Claire and her mother are running out of time, but they don't know it. 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."

Warning: You may need tissues!
Note: This is a really quick read!!
