Waiting on Wednesday: Give Me Your Hand

Wednesday, 28 March 2018

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where the participants tell their readers about an upcoming release they are waiting to read. This week I've picked Give Me Your Hand by Megan Abbott.

Kit has risen to the top of her profession and is on the brink of achieving everything she wanted. She hasn’t let anything stop her. But now someone else is standing in her way – Diane.

Best friends at seventeen, their shared ambition made them inseparable. Until the day Diane told Kit her secret – the worst thing she’d ever done, the worst thing Kit could imagine – and it blew their friendship apart.

 Kit is still the only person who knows what Diane did. And now Diane knows something about Kit that could destroy everything she’s worked so hard for.

How far would Kit go, to make the hard work, the sacrifice, worth it in the end? What wouldn’t she give up? Diane thinks Kit is just like her. Maybe she’s right. Ambition: it’s in the blood...

Megan Abbott has to be one of my all-time favourite psychological thriller writers - her prose is always mesmerising and atmospheric, leaping off the page with every twist. Her past few releases have featured the dark sides of teenage girls and toxic friendships, so it'll be interesting to see how she brings some of those similar themes to life here. If you're looking for a great read, I'd definitely recommend picking up Dare Me, The End of Everything or You Will Know Me.

Releasing 17th July 2018 from Little Brown
