*** Remember Me Like This by Bret Anthony Johnston


A young boy has disappeared and, years later, his family is suffering, dad, mom, his little brother, his grandfather, each in a different way. And then, the boy is found. Remember Me Like This takes each character’s perspective to deliver an evocative story of sadness, revenge, and complex family ties. I loved how the author captured the relationship between the two brothers, with all its complexities that are often glossed over in other stories. The mother’s frantic refusal to accept her son’s disappearance seemed a little cliched in contrast.
