A twelve-year-old boy writes an essay as part of his homework, and inadvertently uncovers a secret from World War II. The secret unleashes a chain of events which rips a formerly close community apart, turning neighbour against neighbour, friend against friend. It is Auckland, 1956. New Zealand has been spared the destruction which ravaged Europe and Asia but beneath the surface bitter memories and old enmities run deep. The war is over but, as the boy discovers, it is far from done with. Remember Me is a story of struggle and redemption, in which a New Zealand schoolboy and a former U-boat commander form an unlikely alliance. It is also a reminder of what can happen in a close, cosy community when the world comes knocking on your door
