Booklist Reviews 2017 October #1

As it happened in We Know It Was You (2016), now retitled Strange Truth, this sequel opens with a shocking death in the midst of a quintessential rite of passage: the high-school science fair. Winship Academy's banal competition gets a jolt of drama when it's interrupted first by a mysterious drug dealer in the girls' bathroom and then by a gruesome death-by-taxidermy, leaving star student DeAndre with a gaping chest wound. Fortunately, Mystery Club members Virginia and Benny are on the case, ready to hide behind trees and poke their noses into the school's dark corners to crack the case. Twisty, bawdy, gossipy, sometimes disturbing, and frequently teetering on satire, this is a solid pick for fans of the TV series Riverdale and other dark, campy mysteries.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2018 Spring

During Winship Academy's science expo, someone is dealing drugs and the student body's African American president is gored by deer antlers. Benny and Virginia's investigation leads them to disturbing discoveries, both personal and societal (involving Atlanta race relations). The sleuths' relationship deepens in subtle, authentic ways in this more-convincing but still over-the-top mystery following [cf2]We Know It Was You[cf1] (later titled [cf2]Strange Truth[cf1]).
