Synopsis

Brian came home from Afghanistan.
But he brought the war back with him.

If life were a movie, my role would be Emo Kid/Family Loser. My brother Brian would star as Master of the Universe. You might think it would be easy to resent him, but my brother is impossible to hate. Just like everyone else, I’m thrilled to have Brian back home from Afghanistan in one piece. But he’s different now.

Everyone refuses to see my brother’s dark secret. What will it take for them to wake up and face the ugly truth?

 Praise for Remember This:

“This demure novel’s veritas provides compelling reading.”—VOYA

“Heart-felt and touching. The mix of serious issues and lighter  fare will appeal to a wide audience.”—KLIATT
