Wendi Wise is a troubled young woman who snorts her breakfast through a straw and spends more time in rehab than in the real world… Her life is seemingly out of control.
But now she has a plan.
That plan involves a sharp set of butcher knives.
She’s going back to where all of her troubles began…Flocksdale.
Wendi was lured away from a local skating rink, at the age of thirteen, and held captive in a place she calls ‘The House of Horrors.’ Dumped off blindfolded on the side of a dirt road, Wendi soon discovered that she was addicted to the drugs they fed her while she was captive.
Too scared to go home, and having a new habit to deal with, she hopped on a bus, vanishing from the family she loved.
Vanishing from Flocksdale…
The town of Flocksdale is littered with fliers with a grainy image of young Wendi, and the words ‘Have You Seen This Girl?’ written below.
Now, eight years later, she’s on a mission—a mission to find the mysterious house from her youth and the monsters who dwell inside it.
“This is the end, beautiful friend, the end…”

What’s It About?
“Perhaps you are wondering how I got this way. Or perhaps you don’t give a damn. Either way, this is my story. It’s not a story about addiction. This is a story about murder.”
Wendi was kidnapped as a teenager, forced into a lifestyle that involved drugs to numb the pain, and eventually let go to fend for herself. After a brief hiatus, she returns to Flocksdale on a mission.
“Wendi Wise was back.”
What her kidnappers weren’t expecting, was for this tortured girl to become a torturer…
Have You Seen This Girl? is a tale of revenge, told in first person perspective by the lead protagonist, Wendi.
WOW!!!! What a story!!! I have whiplash from all the plot twists and turns! Have You Seen This Girl? is the furthest thing from predictable!
Immediately, I was drawn into the plot. When Wendi said that this wasn’t a story about addiction, and that it was a story about murder, I had CHILLS! -And this was in 90 degree weather! I was dying to learn her story! As a warning, do not start this novel at night if you plan on getting any sleep because you will NOT be able to put this story down!
My favorite character was Wendi. I loved everything about her. I didn’t care that she was a dope addict, living like it was the stone age. That actually drew me to her more. I love tortured, angst-ridden characters, that somehow manage to pull themselves up out of the hellhole they are living in. Wendi was never a “damsel in distress”. I found this extremely endearing. I routed for her throughout.
The vivid, descriptive settings described by the author made it easy to fall into, and get lost in the story. Her world building was incredible. I felt like I was watching a movie playing in my head.
I have to mention that I love this author’s writing style. Every single chapter ended with a cliff hanger! That is why I said earlier that this book is very hard to put down.
The conclusion was very satisfying. I had tears in my eyes. I was so glad the author ended this story the way she did. I know this story is the first in a series, so I wonder what book 2 will be about? I impatiently await!
This novel is worth reading for so many reasons. I cannot express enough how much I enjoyed reading, Have You Seen This Girl? If you enjoy an angsty, psychological suspense, then I highly recommend this book to you! Order your copy today!
Can I give this more than 5 stars? No? DARN!
