Daphne’s mother was a teacher and left her daughter a high school yearbook from the class of 1968, one in which she had scribbled numerous notes about the students as she attended their reunions over the years. In a decluttering session to find what sparks joy, Daphne throws out the yearbook. But another resident of her New York apartment, Geneva, reclaims it from the recycling bin and announces that she plans to film a documentary about Daphne’s late mother and the yearbook.
This is a funny story of a woman trying to stop her mother’s life being pried into and stumbling across some secrets on her own. The author has a unique voice with a snarky tone and was working with a great concept, however the plot meandered a bit in the second half.
