Jada asked Katie Crouch:

The characterization of everyone in Magnolia League is so complete, that I felt like each person was real, very much existing in real life. Were these based on people you've known at some point?

Katie Crouch Hey there. Thanks. Those girls were a composite of my friends in high school. We're still close. I was a lot like Alex, sort of awkward. And I based Thaddeus on boys I liked!
