    3.5 stars Good Riddance is zany, madcap chick lit, and an enjoyable light read The story begins when Daphne Maritch throws out her mother s yearbook from her first year of teaching, in which she has made notes about former students at every reunion for nearly 50 years When Daphne s neighbor takes possession of the yearbook and decides she wants to make a documentary about it, all sorts of hijinks ensue.This book was fun I enjoyed the wry style and there were laugh out lo...

    I m so torn here On the one hand, I love the concept It s unique, it s interesting, and the book is well written.On the other handit s really hard to care about Daphne She threw the yearbook away when it was the one thing she got from her dead mother, and she did it barely a year after Mom passed That s pretty cold I d have liked the book infinitely better if the yearbook were lost due to carelessness or thrown out by a friend by mistake or something I hated that Daphne threw it away I m so torn here On th...
