Fans of Courtney Summers and Tess Sharpe will devour this standalone YA thriller following a nonbinary teen investigating a series of copycat murders targeting girls in their small town—murders based on their serial killer dad’s MO.

Another girl has gone missing in Cardinal Creek.

Sid knows their dad didn’t do it—this time. He’s currently serving a life sentence for the five girls he murdered ten years ago. Girls whose bodies he dumped into the lake. The same lake where June Hargrove was just found. And while Sid’s dad couldn’t have done it, suspicion is now directed at Sid. The only person who doesn’t suspect Sid is the new girl, Mavis—as long as Sid doesn’t let her find out about their past.

But Sid has another secret: They’re being haunted by the ghosts of the five girls their father killed. Except now there are six. And unlike the others, June isn’t content to just whisper in Sid’s ear. She wants them to find out who’s killing again, especially as another girl goes missing. If Sid wants any chance of solving the current disappearances, they’re going to have to face what their father did—or risk being haunted forever.

Critically acclaimed author of Who I Was with Her Nita Tyndall delivers a page-turning thriller that will captivate fans of Sadie and Monday's Not Coming.

Praise For…

"An absorbing, plot-driven, skin-crawling thriller." — Kirkus Reviews

"Haunting and propulsive. The mystery will keep you guessing, but it’s the heartfelt rendering of Sid—a teenager struggling to escape the shadow of their father’s sins—that will keep you turning those pages until the very last." — Caleb Roehrig author of Last Seen Leaving and White Rabbit

“I read Nita Tyndall’s Have You Seen This Girl in one breathless sitting; it’s that good. A vivid setting, spare yet evocative prose, and a captivating mystery make this book shine, but its beating, bleeding heart is brave Sid, a terrific protagonist whose hopes and fears feel so real and urgent that you root for them right from the first page. Thrilling, moving, and quietly devastating.” — Claire Legrand, New York Times bestselling author of Sawkill Girls

"Taut, chilling and unforgettable, Have You Seen This Girl is a must-read thriller, as beautifully written and romantic as it is terrifying. I loved every page." — Tom Ryan, award winning author of Keep This to Yourself

Praise for WHO I WAS WITH HER: "Rival cross-country high school athletes Corinne and Maggie are lovers but have kept their relationship a secret; when Maggie dies, Corinne is left to grieve alone. The story is told in alternating before/after timelines, so readers experience Corinne’s romance with Maggie as well as the aftermath of her death. Suspense is ramped up well as the plot develops to reveal who else knew about but kept their relationship a secret, why, and at what cost. The focus on bisexuality is welcome." — Kirkus Reviews

Praise for NOTHING SUNG AND NOTHING SPOKEN: “A captivating story about coming of age during World War II.” — School Library Journal

“Layers and layers of secrecy, the constant terror of being caught, the ecstatic joy of being with other Swing Kids—these elements combine to create an engaging, vivid scene. A compelling story." — Booklist (starred review)

“An intensely heartfelt tale of high-stakes rebellion that will sweep readers all the way to the novel’s gut-wrenching conclusion." — Publishers Weekly
