You will know me / Megan Abbott / 345 pgs

In the competitive world of girls Gymnastics, once athletes reach the "elite" level stakes are raised
and tensions run high.  Young gymnast, Devon Knox, is gifted and has the discipline to make it to the upcoming Olympic team.  Her path is clear-cut, until one of her trainers is involved in a hit-and-run accident.  The death of the trainer causes grief and distractions, as the gymnast's families accuse and shame each other in order to get ahead or just make sense of the tragedy. 

This book reads like the TV "Dance Moms" on crack!  If you like snippy, helicoptering parents involved in their child's competitive sport, as well as a healthy dose of dysfunction, this is a good read. 

Recommended for Adults and older Teens.
