A gripping novel with the pace of a thriller but the nuanced
characterization and deep empathy of some of the literary canon’s most
beloved novels, REMEMBER ME LIKE THIS This introduces Bret Anthony
Johnston as one of the most gifted storytellers writing today. With his
sophisticated and emotionally taut plot and his shimmering prose,
Johnston reveals that only in caring for one another can we save

Four years have passed since Justin Campbell’s
disappearance, a tragedy that rocked the small town of Southport, Texas.
Did he run away? Was he kidnapped? Did he drown in the bay? As the
Campbells search for answers, they struggle to hold what’s left of their
family together.

Then, one afternoon, the impossible happens.
The police call to report that Justin has been found only miles away,
in the neighboring town, and, most important, he appears to be fine.
Though the reunion is a miracle, Justin’s homecoming exposes the deep
rifts that have diminished his family, the wounds they all carry that
may never fully heal. Trying to return to normal, his parents do their
best to ease Justin back into his old life. But as thick summer heat
takes hold, violent storms churn in the Gulf and in the Campbells’
hearts. When a reversal of fortune lays bare the family’s greatest
fears—and offers perhaps the only hope for recovery—each of them must
fight to keep the ties that bind them from permanently tearing apart.
