Read Strange Lies (Strange Truth, #2) Online Free - Only at Winship Academy would an evening science expo turn into a criminal fiasco. First, there’s the anonymous boy in the girls’ bathroom handing out drugs to anyone with the secret password. Then the student body president is maimed in a horrifying and tragic accident—but was it an accident or an attack?
Benny Flax and Virginia Leeds are right at the center of it all. And so is the headmaster’s son, Calvin Harker, an oddball poet whose interest in Virginia sets off alarm bells for Benny. As the case bleeds from Winship Academy to the surrounding city, the deep fault lines of racial tension in Atlanta’s history reveal explosive hatred still simmering under the city’s surface.

I was very pleased to get an advance reader copy of STRANGE LIES, as I loved the first novel in this series, STRANGE TRUTH (originally published as WE KNOW IT WAS YOU). I'm happy to report that I enjoyed this 2nd mystery even more than the first.
Maggie Thrash writes the most wonderful, diverse,...

Maggie is amazing. Yes i did get annoyed with certain elements introduced into the book even though they are important matters; it was still a bit annoying.
But it was amazing of course. I love benny and virginia so much and the setting being at their preppy school i love it so much!
The ending t...

For the record I haven't read the first book in this series but I hope I'll be able to fix that soon.
Strange Lies is a witty satire on the shallow high school culture Hollywood is in love with disguised as an (attempted) murder mystery for teenagers. And I thought it was a good read. Aside from...

I loved Strange Lies (got a preview copy) and pretty much read it straight through. I feel like I am getting to know the characters from We Know It Was You better and I am finding them quite interesting. The plot is clever (really enjoyed the science fair and Opposite Day) and not as turn-offish...

I enjoyed this book so much more than the first! I love Benny and Virginia and all the twists and turns and quirks that fills these books. I'm super excited for the next book!
On a side note I kinda wish they didn't change the covers, I liked the random quirky cover on We Know it Was You, this cov...

An improvement over the first.
I still feel like it contains way too much reference to sex, including scenes that have nothing to do with the case. It makes me as the reader feel like I'm being told "Its normal and its all teenagers think about and talk about. They can't formulate a thought or c...

Maggie Thrash has done it again: created a book that, while working as intended as an adolescent mystery, transcends the genre with wit, wisdom, tenderness, humor, and a fearless courage in addressing controversial topics with deeply thought-provoking insight.
The characters are profoundly three-...
