Ideal for the Buffy fanatic who will understand all the in-jokes, appreciate the comments within, and recognise every single reference within the book. If you're looking for an episode guide, this is not it. It's a cute scrapbook of Buffy: the High School Years laid out like the Sunnydale High Yearbook, and includes plenty of pictures as well as articles about various school events and societies, with comments from the characters scrawled in (Oz's apology to Buffy for chattering on is hilarious) including a must-read poem by Cordelia and Snyder's remark that at least he can be sure that the school will remain standing long after she leaves it. The pictures near the end include information about each of the characters, ranging from the central figures like Buffy, Willow, Xander, etc to Jonathan and Harmony, to the once-off characters from Season 1 that we'd forgotten about, under headings like interests, activities, and a quote from each of them, as well as their memories. This is possibly the most detailed, for-the-most-obsessive-of-fans section, with characters' shout-outs to one another about various events. My favourite part of the book is one of the ads near the end, placed by a student who has a secret crush on Jonathan and hopes one day to tell him. Very sweet. For die-hard fans, a fun read.

Ok, so it's not quite identical to the one we see at the end of "Graduation Day Pt. 2", but this is one of the most interesting and unusual keepsake books to come down the pike in a long time.
No argument -- Nancy Holder and Christopher Golden know the Buffyverse as only Joss Whedon would, and it reflects in everything they do. And the Sunnydale High Yearbook is a prime example.
Now, how to classify it -- it's not a reference manual for the show (that would be The Monster Book or The Watchers Guides, which Holder and Golden also worked on), but it is chock full of interesting tidbits. And it's not a fiction work; this is borrowed straight from the show itself.
Frankly, imagine if you somehow got your hands on Buffy Summers' senior yearbook, complete with signatures in the magins and even extra photos taped in covering the moments that the yearbook editor probably would have preferred stayed out. Now you have an idea of what this is.
There's a section on the sports programs, senior photos, an extensive "in memoriam" section, even ads posted in the back from places like The Bronze or the Espresso Pump. In a way, this book is neat because Holder and Golden put in a lot of thought as to what the other students might have been doing when they weren't interacting with Buffy and the Scoobies. Like, when they weren't picking on Lance or being possessed by hyenas, what activities might Kyle and his friends been involved in? Did Owen Thurman belong to any clubs? How about Jonathan Levenson? Harmony Kendall?
The Sunnydale High Yearbook fleshes out some of the backstory in a very believable way, making the whole world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer seem that much more real.

With such a successful, witty show that had a wide audience range, you'd be forgiven for thinking that there would be a lot of pointless merchandising to go with it. Thankfully though this is often not the case, although the yearbook is not the best 'Buffy' book around. With regards to presentation it is admittedly excellent, set in a lovely red hardback cover and with some nice glossy photographs inside.
Unfortunately there is a great deal that most readers will find themselves skipping past, such as the achievements of the chess club. However, there are enough nice touches to make this a worthwhile book. Not only is it set up as a book of memories for Buffy but also serves as a book of memories of the first three seasons of the show itself. There are countless references to various episodes, especially with comments from the rest of the graduating class. Very few characters are left out, with Amy, Larry, Owen and Scott all included alongside the bigger stars of the show. Undoubtedly though the best part of the book is the fact that it looks as if the characters themselves have added notes, quips and comments over the pages of the yearbook. The inside front cover is particularly well done, with notes from Angel, Willow, Xander and others. Yet what is more impressive is that all of these comments suit the characters and some are genuinely funny, fitting in with the show well.
Although there may be a few filler sections, this is still a fantastic book to have for any collector or anyone that wants to remember what the gang did during their last three years of high school.

This is a gorgeous and aesthetically pleasing, shiny hard-covered book full of nothing but your favourite Buffy dudes! What more could you want?
The stories and articles in the book weren't as clever or ironic as one would expect. That part of it didn't really fit in with what the show is all about. Principal Snyder's little write-up is ace, as are a couple of other bits, but a lot of it is just filler, almost as banal as the stuff they put in REAL year books!
I just love the book because it's my souvenir, and it's chockers with excellent pictures. God knows we need as many pictures of Xander and Oz as we can get! (Plus my boy got it for me for Christmas.) The autographs in the front and back covers are very cool also. We love collecting Buffy paraphenalia!
