Megan Abbott is an American author of crime fiction and a non-fiction analysis of hardboiled crime fiction.
She’s a good writer and skillful story teller.
I just finished her latest novel You Will Know Me.
How far will you go to achieve a dream? That’s the question a celebrated coach poses to Katie and Eric Knox after he sees their daughter Devon, a gymnastics prodigy and Olympic hopeful, compete. For the Knoxes there are no limits–until a violent death rocks their close-knit gymnastics community and everything they have worked so hard for is suddenly at risk. …
Though the author doesn’t know the difference between a forward and backward hip circle, she clearly did some research into the club drama that is (sometimes) the parents booster club. A closed group. Secrets and rumours.
Most coaches would enjoy this intense novel, I think. I wouldn’t recommend it for gymnasts.
