Book Description

The audacious new novel about family and ambition from "one of the best living mystery writers" (Grantland) and bestselling, award-winning author of The Fever, Megan Abbott.

How far will you go to achieve a dream? That's the question a celebrated coach poses to Katie and Eric Knox after he sees their daughter Devon, a gymnastics prodigy and Olympic hopeful, compete. For the Knoxes there are no limits--until a violent death rocks their close-knit gymnastics community and everything they have worked so hard for is suddenly at risk. 

As rumors swirl among the other parents, Katie tries frantically to hold her family together while also finding herself irresistibly drawn to the crime itself. What she uncovers--about her daughter's fears, her own marriage, and herself--forces Katie to consider whether there's any price she isn't willing to pay to achieve Devon's dream. 

From a writer with "exceptional gifts for making nerves jangle and skin crawl" (Janet Maslin), You Will Know Me is a breathless rollercoaster of a novel about the desperate limits of parental sacrifice, furtive desire, and the staggering force of ambition. 

My Thoughts

One of the best books I have read this year. I could not put it down. Kept me on the edge from the first page to the last one. I definitely was not expecting how things turned out, what a surprise!. 

A very intriguing and mysterious story, how well all the elements on this book work together. The characters, the setting, the dialogue, the plot twists. I loved how hopeful but at the same time dark this book is.

I liked the dynamics between all the members of the Knox family, how strong but damaged this family is which helps the story to be a very interesting one. 

A story about family, love, dreams, obstacles, darkness and how far we are willing to go for the people we love. 

A must read which I totally recommend and cant wait to read more of Megan Abbott books.

Thank you Little, Brown and Company and Netgalley for sending a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
