Maggie Thrash grew up in the South. She is the author of the graphic memoir Honor Girl, and a contributor to the online teen magazine Rookie. She attended Hampshire College and the Sewanee School of Letters. Twin Peaks meets Pretty Little Liars in acclaimed author Maggie Thrash’s new Strange Truth series. We Know It Was You (Simon Pulse) is the first book in this page-turning new series. Halfway through Friday night’s football game, beautiful cheerleader Brittany Montague—dressed as the giant Winship Wildcat mascot—hurls herself off a bridge into Atlanta’s surging Chattahoochee River. Just like that, she’s gone. Eight days later, Benny Flax and Virginia Leeds will be the only ones who know why.
