Daphne Maritch doesn't quite know what to make of the heavily-annotated high-school yearbook she inherits from her mother. The late June Winter Maritch was the teacher to whom the class of '69 had dedicated its yearbook, and she, in turn, went on to attend every reunion. Each year, she scribbled notes and observations after each one—not always charitably—and noted who overstepped boundaries of many kinds. In a fit of de-cluttering, Daphne throws the yearbook away. But when it's found in the recycling bin by a neighbor/documentary filmmaker, the yearbook's mysteries—not to mention her own family's—take on a whole new urgency, and Daphne finds herself entangled in a series of events both poignant and absurd.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Effortlessly charming…The book inspires a very specific kind of modern joy.” New York Times Book Review
“Fans of Lipman will cheer for a new novel in her signature style: funny, warm, sharp, smart, and full of love for family, no matter how flawed.” Library Journal
“[A] smart, sassy, and satisfying rom-com…A tightly woven, lightly rendered, but insightfully important novel of the pitfalls to be avoided and embraced on one’s path to self-discovery.” Booklist
“A charming romantic comedy…with a stellar cast of supporting characters…A delightful treat readers will want to savor.” Publishers Weekly
“Narrator Mia Barron’s light, airy delivery fits this contemporary rom-com about a young woman starting over in New York City…Barron accentuates the fun, putting a zany spin on Daphne’s desperate plans to recover the book and her up-and-down relationship with the cute actor across the hall. Using a variety of accents and registers, Barron gives the characters distinct voices and cadences, rounding out their personalities and adding spark to this lighthearted story.” AudioFile
