A life-changing secret destroys an unlikely friendship in this "magnetic" psychological thriller from the Edgar Award-winning author of Dare Me (Meg Wolitzer).

Kit Owens harbored only modest ambitions for herself when the mysterious Diane Fleming appeared in her high school chemistry class. But Diane's academic brilliance lit a fire in Kit, and the two developed an unlikely friendship. Until Diane shared a secret that changed everything between them.

More than a decade later, Kit thinks she's put Diane behind her forever, and she's begun to fulfill the scientific dreams Diane awakened in her. But the past comes roaring back when she discovers that Diane is her competition for a position both women covet, taking part in groundbreaking new research led by their idol. Soon enough, the two former friends find themselves locked in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse that threatens to destroy them both.

Praise for this book

"What THESE black shadows under my eyes? Why they're courtesy of Give Me Your Hand. SO UNBEARABLY TENSE." - Tammy Cohen

"Megan Abbott at her very best. Cool, crisp, chilling." - Paula Hawkins

"Megan's writing is masterful, suspenseful and believable . . . The suspense does not let up – I was gripped from the first page." - Debbie Howells

"SO. GOOD. A tense, pitch-perfect thriller about ambition and female friendship and a forensic examination of what it takes for women to rise through male-dominated spaces." - Erin Kelly

"Give Me Your Hand is sublime." - Laura Lippman

"Give Me Your Hand is dark, smart, twisty, and thoroughly addictive." - Tom Perrotta

"While Megan Abbott's magnetic new novel mines themes of ambition, competition, excellence, and friendship, what perhaps struck me the most was its exploration of the long, undeterrable reach of memory. Give Me Your Hand is darkly effective, uneasy-making, and beautifully, absorbingly written." - Meg Wolitzer
