Now I Know is a young adult novel by Aidan Chambers, first published in 1987.[1] It is a meditation on faith and religion through three interlinked stories, which are told by means of letters, jottings, flashbacks, poetry and puzzles. The novel is part of the author's Dance Sequence, a group of novels which stand alone but can be read in relation to each other.[2]
