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.

Heartfelt, touching and unforgettable, Life on the Refrigerator Door deftly captures the impenetrable fabric that connects mothers and daughters throughout the world and delivers universal lessons about love in a wonderfully simple and poignant narrative.

  • “Very original and touching.”      

    Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat

  • “Kuipers’s haunting debut unfolds like a flip book of half-drawn images too swiftly ended…Bittersweet, funny and achingly real,…Kuipers captures the anxiety surrounding tragedy and conveys the importance of fully experiencing life…Delivers a strong, emotional reminder about the importance of loved ones, even through times of unceasing complications and challenges.”
