Jonah Doyle is six years old. He lives with his mother, his grandfather and their dog Elizabeth in a yellow house in South Dakota. It is a house full of tensions, for Jonah's grandfather is old and tired, and his mother often doesn't want to talk at all. And then one sunny day in early spring, when the snow has mostly melted, a terrible accident occurs that will change the course of Jonah's life.
That same spring, hundreds of miles away, Troy Timmens is growing up in a very different world. He spends his afternoons at his cousins' house, watching older teenagers smoking marijuana, pretending to be uninterested. When he is ten, he receives his first kiss. When asked how it feels to be adopted, he hardly knows how to answer, for he rarely thinks about it. He is perfectly happy with his life as it is.
Over the course of this spellbinding novel, the secret connections that link Troy and Jonah are gradually revealed. 'You Remind Me of Me' is an unforgettable story about the extraordinary lives of seemingly 'ordinary' people.
