'A wonderful and unusual story told in a beautifully understated way. Quietly magnificent' Ruth Hogan, author of The Keeper of Lost Things Ten-year-old Joan was born with a rare gift: she can remember every single day of her life in perfect detail. She can tell you how many times her mother has uttered the phrase ‘it never fails’ in the last six months (twenty-seven), or what she was wearing when her grandfather took her fishing on a particular Sunday in June years ago (fox socks). But Joan doesn’t want to be the girl who remembers everything – she wants to be the girl that no one can forget. When her father’s old bandmate Gavin comes to stay, reeling from the sudden loss of his partner Sydney, Joan is keen to enlist his help in making her name. Even if it means using her extraordinary memory to help him solve the mystery of Sydney’s final months . . . Told in the alternating voices of two unforgettable characters, Val Emmich's The Reminders is a funny, heart-wrenching and uplifting story of friendship, grief, memory and hope.

Wie muss es sein, niemals vergessen zu können? Die 10-jährige Joan fürchtet nichts so sehr, wie eines Tages in Vergessenheit zu geraten. Denn anders als sie selbst scheinen die Leute um sie herum ständig alles Mögliche zu vergessen: Joan ist einer von nur 30 Menschen auf der Welt mit einem fast perfekten Gedächtnis, die ihr gesamtes bisheriges Leben, wie ein Videoband im Kopf hat und jeden Moment und jedes Gespräch erinnern kann. Als der Songwriter Gavin, ein Freund ihrer Eltern, Joan darum bittet, ihre Erinnerungen an seinen plötzlich verstorbenen Partner Sydney mit ihm zu teilen, wittert Joan ihre große Chance: Sie wird für Gavin das Videoband in ihrem Kopf zu jedem einzelnen Moment mit Sydney zurückspulen. Dafür wird er ihr helfen, einen unvergesslichen Song zu schreiben. DIE UNVERGESSLICHEN zeigt das ungewöhnliche Zusammentreffen eines Mädchens, das nicht vergessen kann, und eines Mann, der nicht vergessen will. Das Roman-Debüt des amerikanischen Schauspielers und Singersongwriters Val Emmich ist dabei tragikomische Familiengeschichte, coole Musikkomödie und warmherziges Liebesdrama in einem.
