Thank you to the publisher, Flatiron Books, for gifting me a copy of this book to read and share my review.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
l Know Who You Are is the brilliant tale of two stories. One is about Aimee Sinclair—well-known actress on the verge of being full-on famous. If you saw her, you’d think you knew her. One day towards the near-end of her shoot on her latest film, Aimee comes home from filming to find her husband’s cell phone and wallet on the dining room table. He never goes anywhere without them. But he’s nowhere to be found. She’s not too concerned—they had a huge fight the night before. They both said things they didn’t mean. He might have done things he didn’t mean, things she can’t forget. Even though she has a history of supposedly forgetting. After all, she’s a very good actress.
The next morning she goes for her morning run and then goes to her favorite coffee shop. But her card is denied. When she calls the bank they say her account has been emptied of $10,000. She immediately suspects her husband. But they say no, it was Aimee herself who closed out the account. And thus begins a bizarre rabbit hole into which Aimee finds herself falling where nothing is at it seems.
Alternating with Aimee’s story is that of a little girl who wandered away from home. We always tell our kids not to talk to strangers or bad things will happen. Well, bad things happen.
Brilliantly written. After reading Sometimes I Lie last year and loving it, I was thrilled to read Feeney’s latest novel I Know Who You Are. I was not disappointed! This book will blow your mind, so be sure to sit down and hold on tight! You’re in for a wild ride!
This story is told in two different timelines – alternating between 2017 and talks about Aimee, and 1987 which talks about a young girl named Ciara. Both timelines tell a story that will shock you, thrill you, and entertain you. There are so many secrets and lies, deception and betrayal, that you will find yourself completely immersed in this book and be unable to put it down.
Aimee claims she is innocent and that she has no idea where her husband has disappeared, yet she finds herself as one of the police’s main suspects. Is Aimee as innocent as she claims, and truly had nothing to do with her husbands disappearance, or is she lying? If it wasn’t Aimee then who could it be? Who would want to make her husband disappear and frame her for it?
I thought I had this book figured out as I was reading it, but I was so very wrong. I loved how this book was written and how it keeps you guessing. With an ending that was amazing and will have you talking about long after you’ve read the book, you need to add this book to your must reads for the year! You will love it!
MY RATING: 5/5 stars
