Shirley R. Vernick is a young adult writer. She will be talking about her book, “Remember Dippy.” Johnny’s plans fly out the window when he finds out his single mother leaves town for the summer. She has a breakthrough job in upstate New York. He can live with his Aunt Collette but only on the condition that he helps out with his autistic older cousin, Remember. Yup, you heard it right: Remember Dippy. That’s his cousin’s name—and Remember is a gawky, awkward kid with some pretty strange habits, like repeating back almost everything Johnny says and spending hours glued to the weather channel. Johnny’s premonitions of disaster appear at first to come to cringeworthy fruition. Still, when the two boys save a bully from drowning, salvage the pizzeria guy’s romance, and share girl troubles, Johnny ends up having the summer of his life.
