You Will Know Me by Megan Abbott

You Will Know MeYou Will Know Me by Megan Abbott
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

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

Devon has a dream, of becoming a gym superstar, wanting to perform in all competitions going. Her parents Katie and Eric have supported her all the way, her coach now believes she can make it in the Olympics so Katie and Eric continue to support her.

Unfortunately this was not my type of book, I have no interest in this area and I found it extremely difficult to get into the book. I didn't find there were any major twists that I hadn't already guessed, I didn't find the 'mystery' was all that. I feel that the book had a massive hype and flopped for me. Yes the story was well written and in the past I have loved Megan Abbott's novels, but this is not one that I particularly care for. I have given the book 3* mainly for the way it has been written. Unfortunately I was deeply disappointed in this book.

I would like to thank the publisher for sending this in exchange for an honest review.
