I got this book for free from here. I chose it because the cover looked really cool, and the summary sounded amazing as well. I have to say, I was kind of disappointed. It wasn't what I had expected it to be.
First of all, the story felt very rushed. One moment, Mae was trying not to be noticed in class, and the next she was hanging out with Ty (who reminded me of The Almighty Johnsons' Ty, but that's just because of the name), accepting him kissing her on the cheek (they met a couple of days before, and they were already acting like they were a in love for years). I believe the story took part in the span of a couple of months, but to me it felt like nothing more than a week had passed between the beginning and the end of the story.
I liked Mae as a character, but I also thought she was a bit annoying at some points. She liked Harry Potter, always a plus, and she wanted to become an author; those were the things that made me like her. But the fact that she refused to believe that the deaths of her father and sister were accidents, and that her grandmother died of a heart attack, made me want to slap her sometimes.
I wasn't a big fan of Ty, actually. To me it felt like he fell head over heels in love with Mae from the first time he saw her. I personally don't really believe in love at first sight, and I just thought it was a bit annoying that he kept on badgering her about showing her around the school, taking her to prom. I mean the moment he said (and I quote): "If you don't agree to go to prom with me, I won't leave you alone. Everyone in the school will know how much I want you to be my date. I will top every other date proposal any girl at this school has ever seen. I will stand on the roof of the school. I will write on every whiteboard in every classroom. I will follow you around like a lost puppy." I just mentally told Mae to get the hell away from him. Seriously, if a girl says no, she means no and she doesn't mean 'convince me'. I think he said all of this to her only a couple of days after they'd met. Stalker much?
In the end, I wasn't a fan or To Know Me, mainly because it just felt weird in my opinion. At several points in the story, I actually felt like closing the file and not finishing the book, but I just wanted to know if Mae was really cursed with a 'if i get too close to people they will die' virus, or if it was really something else. Yeah, well, I kind of felt like I was lured into reading this book with the nice cover and the promising summary. Such a shame.

This was an okay story about a girl who thought to was better to run away, than to stay home and kill her family. Unfortunately it seemed that Macy blamed herself for the death of her father, sister and grandmother when really it wasn’t her fault at all.
I thought that Macy was quite strong to not just run away but to continue to go to school and think about going to college. She could have ended up on the streets, but instead she continued on with her life whilst being self-sufficient.
I did find that the story dragged a bit, but otherwise it was okay. I didn’t see the couple of twists coming, which was good, and we got a happy ending.
