The Rosie ProjectmeetsTell the Wolves I'm Homein this endearing debut about what happens when a girl who can't forget befriends a man who's desperate to remember.

Grief-stricken over his partner's death, Gavin sets fire to every physical reminder in the couple's home before fleeing Los Angeles for New Jersey. There, he hopes that his friend's ten-year-old daughter, Joan, who was born with a rare ability to recall every day of her life in detail, will help him hold on to the memory of his beloved Sydney. Gavin and Joan make a pact: in return for Joan sharing her memories of Sydney's half-dozen visits over the years, Gavin will help Joan win a local songwriting contest so she can become someone unforgettable. The unlikely duo sets out to write and remember, until one of Joan's memories leads Gavin to doubt whether Sydney actually loved him after all. Told in the alternating voices of Joan and Gavin,The Remindersis an insightful, funny, and poignant exploration of loss, memory, friendship and renewal.
