Forget You Know Me is the story of Molly and Liza, two friends so close they might as well be family. Things stayed that way when Molly married Daniel, but when Liza moved away, things got strained – for the friends and the marriage. With Daniel away on business, Molly and Liza make plans to reconnect on a video chat. The chat starts off fine and then Molly leaves the room to check on a crying child when Liza sees something that changes everything. She knows that she needs to get to Molly’s side as she needs her now more than ever, but Liza might not be willing to accept it.

Strawser is also the author of A Million Reasons Why. The book tells the story of two half-sisters who discover each other’s existence through a mail-in DNA test. For one, it’s a dream come true. For the other, it changes everything that she thought she knew. Caroline discovers that the beliefs she had about her family are all wrong. While this all comes for Sela at just the right time as she is in desperate need of a donor match to save her life.
