Summary

One of the Best Books of 2016--NPR, the Washington Post , The Wall Street Journal , the Boston Globe , Elle , Thrillist, Publishers Weekly , Time Out New York , Self and Kirkus

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.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Teen gymnastics prodigy Devon Knox has excelled despite a childhood lawn-mower accident that left her with a Frankenfoot, as her mom, Katie, our third-person narrator, regrets calling it. Devon thrives because of her intense drive and single-mindedness and because her parents have focused the family's entire existence around helping her succeed. Yet as Devon prepares for a second chance at Elite Qualifiers (she failed the first time when her ankle wobbled), her Olympic dream is in turmoil: a much-loved young man has been killed in a hit-and-run, beloved Coach T. loses focus when his niece is suspected, and, worst of all, Katie suspects her husband, Eric, is involved. Abbott has a knack for dissecting the dark, beating heart of the most all-American activity. Her Dare Me (2012) brought a Fight Club intensity to cheerleading, and here she captures ripped palms and the muscle-bound physiques that attract the cruel taunts of classmates. But this equally dazzling tale is set not in the teens' world but rather in the adult boosters' strange tribe, exploring the agony and urgency of their desire, the unknowability of others, and the burden of expectations laid on the gymnasts. It's vivid, troubling, and powerful and Abbott totally sticks the landing.--Graff, Keir Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Ever since their teen daughter, Devon, hinted at a special talent for gymnastics, Katie and Eric Knox have spared nothing to get her whatever she needs to qualify for the Olympics. When the novel opens, Katie is beginning to wonder if they have given up too much. Her doubts increase when a family friend is killed by a hit-and-run driver in a car that seems similar to Eric's. Reader Fortgang catches every subtle mood shift of Katie's, from her delight at Devon's ability to her fear that events, real or imagined, will derail her daughter's progress. Eric usually sounds uptight and anxious, and when he and Katie are alone, a little furtive. Devon is brimming with entitlement, impatience, and intolerance. Her fellow gymnasts are humorless, snarky, soft-spoken or arrogant. All are almost as driven as their parents, for whom Olympic excellence is all that matters in their lives.
