Sometimes a good mystery leaves you guessing until the very end. Sometimes you think you have it all figured out but you find out you didn’t know anything. While reading You Will Know Me by Megan Abbot, I figured out pretty early on where the book was going. The interesting part was watching the protagonist come to that conclusion.
Katie and Eric Knox are the proud, dedicated parents of gymnastic prodigy Devon. She is the star of their local gymnastics gym and is expected to become an elite, Olympic level athlete. Their local gym community has pinned a lot of their hopes and dreams, along with the gym’s future success on Devon. When a member of their team is killed, everything is thrown into disarray. The story is told through Katie, Devon’s mom. As the mysterious death is investigated, many secrets come to light and Katie is forced to rethink everything she knows about the people who are closest to her.
This book is such a compelling fast read and the first one I’ve read by Megan Abbot. After enjoying this one so thoroughly, I’ll be moving her bumping her other books up in my TBR pile.
