You Will Know Me
Katie and Eric Knox have dedicated their lives to their fifteen-year-old daughter Devon, a gymnastics prodigy and Olympic hopeful. But when a violent death rocks their close-knit gymnastics community just weeks before an all-important competition, everything the Knoxes have worked so hard for feels suddenly at risk. As rumors swirl among the other parents, revealing hidden plots and allegiances, Katie tries frantically to hold her family together while also finding herself drawn, irresistibly, to the crime itself, and the dark corners it threatens to illuminate. 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 desire, jealousy, and ambition.

    3.5 stars, I guess (between "liked" and "really liked.")I adore Megan Abbott. She writes high-school girls better than anyone. She also, it seems, writes adult women really well! The central question of this book is what would you do for the ones you love? And the answer here is anythi...

    I took forever to finish this book .....which can be read in a day. I only 'came back' to 'humor myself' with this $1.99 special during those times I was relaxing in our sauna. I save sauna/Kindle reads for those books I'm not dying to finish-- if it takes me 6 weeks -- makes no differ...

    Competitive edge, the pressure to be perfect, and far too much importance attached to a performance. For fifteen year old Devon Knox, perfection in gymnastics is all she has ever wanted. Her parents are willing to do anything to help her achieve it. They may have doubts about a lot of ...

    Being a girl is so hard, Katie thought. And it only gets harder.i think i'm gonna go ahead and give this five stars after all. because, confession time - as far as her non-noir stuff goes, i didn't love her last two (Dare Me and The Fever) as much as i loved The End of Everything. i di...
