Synopsis

Katie and her husband Eric have made their daughter Devon the centre of their world. Talented, determined, a rising gymnastics star, Devon is the focus of her parents' lives and the lynchpin of their marriage. There is nothing they 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. 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 . . .

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

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

Abbott's ability to build suspense and feed on readers' fear is nearly unparalleled . . . Her thousands of fans have been hungry for this book for a while, and with good reason: it's both terrifying and gripping.
Elle USA
You Will Know Me is a stunning, original and remarkable novel . . . viscerally evoked and the tension simmering away in an ordinary community is depicted with both precision and lyricism . . . Abbott's prose is precise and striking yet somehow also contains a dreamlike quality.
Big Issue
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.
