Remembering the Good Times By Richard Peck 

(Laurel Leaf)


Even though Richard Peck’s Remembering the Good Times was written almost 30 years ago, the story still resonates with modern readers. Written in 1986, Good Times tells the story of three best friends---Buck, Kate and Trav---as they transition between childhood and adulthood. After a tragic event, two of the friends are left to re-evaluate the events that led up to that moment. The storyline may sound like the synopsis from a cheesy Lifetime film, but the book breaks free of this cliche. It has both well-written characters and a well-paced story that allows you the time to connect and grow with not only the three protagonists, but the supporting characters as well. Overall, it’s in Good Times’ final chapters that this novel truly shines. The ending is not only heartfelt, but leaves the reader to question how much of their public persona really reflects their inner self.

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
