"WE KNOW IT WAS YOU is the definition of a page turner. Thrash's unique ability to balance humor, mystery, and teen angst blew me away. Hilarious, twisty, and full of unforgettable characters—this is damn good stuff." (John Corey Whaley, Printz Award-winning author of Where Things Come Back and National Book Award Finalist Noggin)
“We Know it Was You has all the elements of a great read: mystery, humor, romance and drama . . . Thrash's writing is so mesmerizingly good I found myself re-reading sentences for the sheer pleasure and surprise of them. This not your typical boarding school/high school novel, it's way more fun. Go Wildcats!” (Cecily von Ziegesar, author of Gossip Girl)
"With WE KNOW IT WAS YOU, Maggie Thrash has proven she can do plain old words every bit as well as she does words and pictures. Here's a whodunnit that's less about whodunnit than about howitwasdun, a twisted mystery of mascots, cheerleaders, and the unlikely duo that has to untangle all the knots . . . just as wonderful as it is hilarious." (Tommy Wallach, New York Times bestselling author of We All Looked Up and Thanks for the Trouble)

The negative reviews are clearly by people who are unable to see past the expectations and conventions of the genre, or their own ideological sacred cows, as well as being humor and irony-impaired. If you want to be force-fed the same thought police-approved propaganda that you see and hear everywhere else, then by all means, "stay away" from this book. But if you want to be challenged, stretched, and left thinking deeply (not to mention entertained), then read it; don't allow the scolding of the small-minded keep you from expanding yourself and seeing things from a different perspective.
Fell for the blurb, stating a mix between Twin Peaks (big fan) and Pretty Little Liars (have seen only the first few episodes, might binge all, when I have time and it is concluded?!).
What little suspense there is stems from the two MC's not knowing a bit. Some inner musings and thoughts do little for me, although themes with pedophilia, abuse, rape are in the book, somehow it left a childish impression for me. This is probably the fault of the MC's who are even with the things happening not really grown up. Could have done with more nerdy/geeky stuff.
So, not what the blurb promises and not what I want to read. Not recommended, two meager stars it is and I do not feel sorry for that, only for my wasted time not DNFing it. As it is, I will certainly not read more of this series (and probably not more from this author).
