Alice hasn’t been home for a while – for seven years, in fact. But when her little sister Lo tries to take her own life, she has to return to the life she left behind. The change of scenery from London to Norfolk proves quite the culture shock, however, and Alice has to confront what she left behind all those years ago.
The sisters’ relationship hasn’t evolved in Alice’s absence, and when she steps through the door she’s plunged back into the same world she escaped from. Set against Norfolk’s bleak landscapes, but masquerading as childhood nostalgia, Fridge is an all-too-familiar exploration of the broken promises of youth, and a bitter exposition of a generation left behind.
This story is about Alice and how after seven years away from her home she returns because of her sister Lo, who has been struggling and needs family to help her. Alice is shocked by everything upon her return, London is so much different to the quietness of Norfolk. Will she be able to help her sister and help herself? I liked the way this book is set out as a play, it is unique and different to anything I have read before. I liked the journey both sisters go on too, I kind of imagined it as me watching a play which put a different spin on it entirely. It is a nice short read and easy to pick up and put down.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
