Yearbook. The high school class of 1968 dedicated its yearbook to teacher June Winter Maritch. The action in Elinor Lipman’s novel titled, Good Riddance, begins after June’s daughter, Daphne Maritch, throws away her late mother’s yearbook. A dumpster-diving neighbor, Geneva, retrieves the yearbook and approaches Daphne with her plan to make a documentary based on the yearbook. Hijinks follow, as Lipman weaves a romantic story and peeks inside family dynamics. Readers looking for light entertainment are those most likely to enjoy this novel.
