When Luke meets Rebecca in a copy store, he doesn't remember her. In fact, he is surprised that they'd attended the same school in Mallorca thirty years ago. They seem to have little in common except for a tattered yearbook.
As they become reacquainted, he admires her determination to save her son from Neuroblastoma, a rare cancer. He wants to help, since he'd lost his wife to breast cancer and is raising his son alone.
He wonders why he'd never noticed Rebecca in school. She seems to appreciate his support, but keeps her distance. He convinces himself that the friendship between their sons is the bond that holds the adults together.
Rebecca remembers Luke. She had a crush on him during her year in Mallorca, and their reunion triggers fond and painful memories. Her experiences had transformed her from a shy teenager into a confident woman. The only thing missing was Luke, a handsome, brash youth with a girlfriend of his own.
Like snapshots, Rebecca recalls the events in Spain that shaped her life – a life that could have been different if she'd shared it with Luke.
The Yearbook intertwines joy and sorrow as Luke and Rebecca struggle to deal with the fickle nature of her son's disease, and as both of their children provide a simple outlook on life and death, an outlook that adults tend to lose with time. The message is a celebration of a young life, and a tribute to a strong mother.
no no . never. No "messages" unless they're in a gin bottle and say "help I'm trapped on a desert island with a basketball named Wilson".
