The audacious new novel about family and ambition from "one of the best living mystery writers" (Grantland) and best-selling, 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 roller coaster of a novel about the desperate limits of parental sacrifice, furtive desire, and the staggering force of ambition.



"The book to the 'Is it the next Gone Girl?' sweepstakes." (Janet Maslin, New York Times)
"Thriller Award-winner Abbott ( The Fever) takes a piercing look at what one family will sacrifice in the name of making their daughter a champion.... Abbott keenly examines the pressures put on girls' bodies and the fierce, often misguided love parents have for their children." ( Publishers Weekly)
"In true Abbott style, nothing is predictable here; the plot consistently confounds expectations with its clever twists and turns. Admirers of Patricia Highsmith, Laura Lippman, and Kimberly Pauley are in for a treat." ( Library Journal)

Maybe interesting for gymnists

I don't quite get why the description of the book calls it a thriller and promises to keep you in suspense... I found it because I love Lauren Fortgangs style of reading and reading wise it was a pleasure to listen to. But the story was so damn slow and dragging. Until 4 hours in I was still asking myself why I was listening to the boring day to day life of a sports family. The end got slightly better, but still couldn't really keep me engaged. A shame!
