In Remember Me Gone, Stacy Stokes tells the story of two estranged sisters who must come to terms with their past in order to move on with their lives. Although they share a deep bond, May and Evie have been living separate lives since May ran away from home at seventeen. When May learns that Evie is fighting a losing battle against cancer, she returns to her childhood home determined to make things right between them. But can she really fix what’s broken? Evie has always felt like an outsider in her own family—a feeling that was only amplified when her younger sister ran off without so much as a goodbye. She’s spent the last decade building a new life for herself and her son, but now that he’s starting kindergarten, she realizes how little time she has left to accomplish everything she wants. So when May shows up out of nowhere asking forgiveness for something neither of them remembers happening, Evie isn’t sure whether it’s worth opening up old wounds just so they can both feel closure before it’s too late..
