    1. Update New review 12 14 18Daphne Maritch, finally free of Pickering, New Hampshire and stupid mistakes made even here in NYC, has read that book about decluttering your home and hugging your stuff to see if they bring you joy or hate or painful memories that may lead to eating a pint of ice cream with a half cup of bourbon on top This will then lead you to the trash or recycle bins in the basement of your apartment building to throw out all the meaningless stuff you ve collected, including the U [...]

    3. 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 loud funny moments, [...]


    4. Thank you HMH Books for sending me a copy of GOOD RIDDANCE in exchange for an honest review This one was light and sweet, but not for me I couldn t get along with the main protagonist, or figure out who she was or what she wanted relateable though haha Little plot progression, and a romance that felt forced I really enjoyed the relationship between the father and daughter, however, bumping up my rating a bit I think you ll like this one if you re a fan of Lipman s other work, unlikable f Thank y [...]


    5. 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 [...]


    6. In 1991 I picked up a book by an author I had never read before, Elinor Lipman, it was THEN SHE FOUND ME, and I have been her most devoted fan ever since GOOD RIDDANCE is right up there with my favorite Lipman books It does harken back to the parental confusion and loyalty issues that occurred in her first novel Again, she creates a delightful, ditzy, totally sympathetic heroine in Daphne Matrich I quite literally could not put down the book I cared about Daphne and her family Lipman skill In 19 [...]
