    1. So many things you never think you ll do until you do them 4 1 2 stars I m just going to say it Megan Abbott is one of my favourite authors I ve read three of her books and I ve loved three of her books I get it her writing isn t for everyone but it s for me Holy shit, is it for me.It s hard to explain Abbott writes about quiet people politics and the small details that all add up to something bigger Suspense hums beneath the surface, turning the most mundane events into something darker, someth [...]

    2. Ok, so Megan Abbott and I have a bit of history I ve not read her noir books, so my first read of hers was The End of Everything I was so blown away by that one that I couldn t wait to pick up Dare Me I m not sure if it was just me or the book, but I was so disappointed in myself for not loving it I moved along to reading The Fever next, but didn t rush out for it immediately thankfully I enjoyed that one than the previous but it still didn t live up to TEOE for me Needless to say, I was a teen [...]

    3. Being a girl is so hard, Katie thought And it only gets harder.i think i m gonna go ahead and give this five stars after all because, confession time as far as her non noir stuff goes, i didn t love her last two Dare Me and The Fever as much as i loved The End of Everything i didn t dislike them by any means although many readers did , but i thought that while they excelled in their depiction of the darker aspects of teenage girlhood, as do all her books, the surrounding stories weren t as stron [...]

    4. Katie and Eric Knox know no bounds when it comes to their extra special gymnast daughter, Devon Every thing goes to Devon and her amazing talent That extra mortgage No biggie Smoozing with the richie bitch down the street Par for the course Devon is a star That s all that matters.Then for Devon herself This young girl is a frigging robot She is about to turn sixteen and knows that the worst thing ever is about to happen She is about to get some boobs and curves This is her last shot at those eve [...]

    5. The 2016 Summer Olympics are getting ready to start this week, and after reading this I ll be leery of any heartwarming features about athletes and their families because it seems like they won t scratch the surface of the toll it probably took on all of them to get there.Devon Knox is an extraordinary young gymnast with a real chance to become an Olympian, and her parents, Katie and Eric, have made this goal the focus of their entire lives However, the shocking death of someone connected to the [...]

    6. No on writes about the intersections between teenage girls, ambition, bodies, and obsession better than Megan Abbott Her voice is distinct throughout this novel Tight, taut, tense, terrifying You Will Know Me is both a portrait of a family who put their talented gymnast daughter at the center of their world, and how ambition is the thing that holds them together and tears them apart The words in this novel are like weapons and Abbott wields them very well.

    7. 3.5 stars Never again, she told herself I won t be that mom She needs someplace to be herself To be messy and sad and human Real To be whatever she was becoming.Here s a tense thriller that is about the journey than the actual mystery It s about the intricacies of the Knox family and the way their world revolves around competitive gymnastics Told from the mother Katie s perspective, there s the recurring theme of parenthood and what it s like to watch your child grow pulling away and until t [...]

    8. Katie and Eric Knox will do anything for their gymnast prodigy Devon When the boyfriend of one of her gymnastic instructors die, will Katie be able to keep their idyllic life from disintegrating around them Here we are, another Megan Abbott book and another series of cold knives in my heart At first glance, I thought this might be similar to Dare Me, Megan s book about cheerleaders You Will Know Me is about the parents of star gymnasts and the crazy shit they do for their kids.From the first pag [...]

    9. I started this book at the perfect time, often turning the pages as my daughter sat watching Olympic gymnastics I m glad that she is able to watch these incredible performances and that these strong, determined athletes are an inspiration to her I m also quietly thankful that sports are recreational for my children I understand that there are those children who are single minded when it comes to their sport of choice I also know there are those who excel beyond reason I suppose with the right co [...]

    10. I d rate this 3.5 stars.While the so called mystery part of this book held about as much suspense as whether Ryan Lochte and his swimming compatriots were actually robbed at gunpoint in Rio, You Will Know Me further cemented Megan Abbott s talent as one of the best creators of mean girls and adults, for that matter that is currently writing And so gymnastics became the center, the mighty spine of everything for them Katie and Eric Knox have given nearly everything in pursuit of their daughter De [...]

    11. I took forever to finish this book which can be read in a day I only came back to humor myself with this 1.99 special during those times I was relaxing in our sauna I save sauna Kindle reads for those books I m not dying to finish if it takes me 6 weeks makes no difference to me So this was a chosen sauna read always on my old Kindle which still works even in a hot box For starters s possible I come to this story the world of competitive gymnasts with a different eye than the reader who have onl [...]

    12. Following Dare Me, a brilliant novel set in the world of teenage cheerleaders, Megan Abbot turns her eye in the direction of another exclusive arena of young girls, gymnastics This is a very dark, thought provoking book brilliantly written as always And after reading it, you will never watch the Olympic Games, or many other such sporting events, in the same way again While there is a crime at the heart of this book, this is not a crime novel in the traditional sense Truth to tell, the crimes per [...]

    13. Competitive edge, the pressure to be perfect, and far too much importance attached to a performance For fifteen year old Devon Knox, perfection in gymnastics is all she has ever wanted Her parents are willing to do anything to help her achieve it They may have doubts about a lot of things, but not about Devon s absolute talent A suspicious death occurs shortly before a major competition, and the fallout from the resultant collateral damage will leave no one untouched.

    14. Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum You Will Know Me is the story of this The person on the track Fifteen year old Devon The people who are going to get her there And All of the parties have the same end goal Olympic gold and nothing will stop them.I m going to go against the grain just a weeeeeeee bit and only give this 4 Stars Truthfully if I hadn t read this during the day followed by watching the U.S women gymnastic team compete the same night, I might have only given it 3.5 I m going t [...]

    15. Reading this book is like watching a great gymnastics performance it s powerful, it goes by super fast, and you can t take your eyes from it.In You Will Know Me we meet the Knox family Parents Katie and Eric, daughter Devon, and son Drew Devon is training to be an elite gymnast Katie and Eric have re mortgaged the house and piled on tons of credit card debt in order to pay for all the lessons and equipment Devon needs And poor Drew is often forgotten on the sidelines.We see the story unfold from [...]

    16. I have long been fascinated by the world of elite gymnasts, one of my favorite things to watch in the Olympics Why I grabbed this book when it was offered First of this authors I have read The storyline involves around this rarified world, and the mystery, who was behind the wheel of the hit and run is seamlessly blended into the lives of these gymnasts Our narrator is one of the mothers, her daughter Devon is extremely focused, knows what she wants and has since she was a young child She is the [...]

    17. Oh my god a thriller with gymnastics Was this book written with me in mind Update 10 23 16 probably a 2.5 5 In general just predictable with super dull characters For a book so tailored to my interests, this failed on a lot of levels.

    18. I ve seen this book pop up here and there in recommendations for a little while now I m not sure if it s because I didn t find the cover compelling or what, but for some reason I was never that drawn to it But over the holidays I decided to try out the Book Of The Month Club and when December picks rolled around, it was seemingly the best choice of the bunch so I gave it a shot In short, You Will Know Me is the story of a family whose lives center around one daughter s success in gymnastics She [...]

    19. She hadn t learned, no one had taught her Katie and Eric hadn t taught her that the things you want, you never get them And if you do they re not what you thought they d be But you d still do anything to keep them Because you wanted them for so long.Megan Abbott s perfect writing style and fantastic characters blend with a creepy storyline to form a near perfect suspense book You Will Know Me has an interesting, if somewhat overdone, premise Katie and Eric s daughter, Devon, a talented gymnastic [...]

    20. Children are knives, my mother once said They don t mean to, but they cut And yet we cling to them, don t we, we clasp them until the blood flows Joanne HarrisMegan Abbott, the Edgar winning author, pens yet another heart stopping thriller, You Will Know Me, which is yet to publish in the month of July of year 2016, that unfolds the story of a mother with a child prodigy, and this is a mother s tale of how and at what extent she can go to protect her daughter and her husband thereby rescuing her [...]

    21. A Megan Abbott novel is than just a book It is a palpable feeling in the pit of your stomach It is a steadily growing sense of dread that something awful is about to happen Or that perhaps something awful has happened already and you don t know about it yet.I ve read almost every Megan Abbott book and I have yet to read one I didn t like Her novels are set in an almost real world It looks a lot like real life, but something is always just slightly off You can feel it, that something is a little [...]

    22. You Will Know Me by Megan Abbott was a thriller about trying to succeed in the competitive sport of Gymnastics I found this book hard to read as the characters were so unlikeable I was amazed at the pressure put on these children to get to the top of their field I would like to thank NetGalley and Pan Macmillan for my e copy in exchange for an honest review.

    23. 3.5 starsMy therapist once said that I have an obsessive personality He meant this neither as an insult nor a compliment, just a fact that I know what I love and stick with it e.g books, psychology mental health, Ariana Grande As a kinda obsessive person, I consider it fair game to call all the characters in You Will Know Me obsessed extremely, obscenely obsessed Not in a good way, either They all hone in like hawks on young Devon Knox s success as an aspiring gymnast, the one girl in their insu [...]

    24. 3.75 starsThis was an interesting read for me I can t say that I loved it, but I did enjoy reading it.I felt like the proverbial fly on the wall, getting a chance to be a voyeur into the inner workings of the life of a young gymnast being groomed to be the next gold medalist.I think the clever piece that made this appealing to me was that the story was told from the Mother s point of view Her observations of her daughter who fears growing older and what it will do to her gymnast body to her hus [...]

    25. You Will Know Me by Megan Abbott is a 2016 Little Brown publication.I put this book on hold way back at the start of the 2016 Summer Olympics, and quickly discovered I had a very long wait ahead of me FINALLY, I got a copy and immediately blew through the book at record speed I knew I was about to witness a train wreck, but I couldn t tear my eyes away from the pages This book disturbed me for days after I finished it, and I still get a queasy feeling when I think about it The story, as you know [...]

    27. I am so fortunate to have gotten my hands on an advanced copy of YOU WILL KNOW ME Every character in this book is so well realized, and every character in this book is suspect There is a general feeling of unease that builds as the story develops, as you can t tell who is dangerous, who is lying, and most chilling of all, who believes they are telling the truth and or doing the right thing THAT is probably the most compelling and frightening aspect of this story there are no clich mustache twirl [...]

    28. I was very fortunate to get my hands on an early copy of YOU WILL KNOW ME, and devoured it in about two days Abbott s writing is truly like none I ve ever read Mesmerizing and terrifying all at the same time I was absolutely captivated by this story of a young female gymnast and all that she and her family must endure to make her a champion Graphic, compelling and utterly unique, this is a novel I highly recommend.

    29. 4.5 stars You Will Know Meis my first book by Megan Abbott It will not be my last.My on line friend and author, Randy Chandler, recommended her work to me, and I filed it away under authors to investigate Then I ran across Ms Abbott s intro to Ed Brubaker s Fatale Deluxe Edition, Volume One, and I liked her style, AND I LOVED that incredible graphic novel , so when I saw You Will Know Me available at my local library on audio, I hopped on it In listening to this book, I experienced so much tensi [...]
