Description

For fans of The Thing About Jellyfish, a touching story about the power of love and family in the face of a parent's early-onset Alzheimer's disease.

Ten-year-old Foster has always loved listening to his dad's stories. But lately, Dad's memory hasn't been so great, and Mom's placed sticky notes around the house to help him. As Dad's condition worsens, it's Foster who will need to look deep into his heart and remember for them both.

Sticky Notes is a touching story about the power of love and family in the face of a parent's Alzheimer's disease, and a moving reminder of the ways in which the hardest circumstances can pull us closer together.
