Synopsis

Almost unbearably tense, chilling and addictive . . . Exceptional' - Paula Hawkins, author of Girl on the Train

A mother knows best . . . doesn't she?

Talented and determined, Devon is the centre of her ambitious parents' world, and the lynchpin of their marriage. There is nothing Katie and Eric wouldn't do for her.

When a violent hit-and-run accident sends shockwaves through their close-knit community, Katie is immediately concerned for her daughter, a rising star of the gymnastics world. She and Eric have worked so hard to protect Devon from anything that might distract or hurt her. That's what every parent wants for their child, after all. Even if they don't realize how much you've sacrificed for them. Even if they are keeping secrets from you . . .

Plotted with all the brilliance of Dare Me, and written with the compassion of The Fever, the astonishing You Will Know Me - dark and tender by turns - is an unforgettable novel by Megan Abbott.

In the media

Megan Abbott will draw you in with plot — there's a crime, a hit-and-run — and keep you reading with weightier questions
NPR
A masterful tale that's both suspenseful and an eerily accurate portrait of the way teenage and parental cliques operate . . . It's Abbott's psychological smarts that make You Will Know Me such a standout . . . never lets the suspense flag . . . Abbott steadily commands our attention with a suspense plot that unexpectedly somersaults and back flips whenever a landing seems in sight . . . ingenious.
Washington Post
Her books are driven as much by intricate character development and rhythmic sentences as they are by plot.
