    Aubrey LaRoux knew she’d stand out at the prestigious Waverly Prep School. Land, rumored to be cursed when it belonged to the Chitimacha, developed a darker history as a sugar mill plantation. Indisputably responsible for the dismal lives and deaths of countless slaves, the historical remains on site presented an unwelcoming atmosphere. Although she’d be one of only a few Black students, the fact that she was there on a Creole scholarship would be well-known and was more concerning.

Land, rumored to be cursed when it belonged to the Chitimacha, developed a darker history as a sugar mill plantation. Indisputably responsible for the dismal lives and deaths of countless slaves, the historical remains on site presented an unwelcoming atmosphere. Although she’d be one of only a few Black students, the fact that she was there on a Creole scholarship would be well-known and was more concerning. Aubrey had no hopes of making friends, only securing a solid education. As predicted, popular student, Marjorie made sure Aubrey bore the brunt of bullying. Then, Marjorie went missing. The majority of the student body expressed shock and sadness. Aubrey, in her infinite teen-aged wisdom, angrily and emphatically stated delight in Marjorie’s absence, changing her status from student to suspect. Returning to Waverly as a history teacher seemed surreal as Aubrey stepped back onto campus. Unease turned to trepidation when she noticed a Missing poster featuring a face remarkably similar to her own tormentor. Marjorie’s little sister, Lindsey, followed too closely in her sibling’s footsteps. She is missing from Waverly. Insisting that teen-aged girls create drama and run away, Probst, the apathetic headmistress, was determined to run the school “business-as-usual”. Just like when Marjorie disappeared. They all did nothing. But students are bolder and Ms. LaRoux is staff now. Lindsey’s disappearance will not be ignored. It doesn’t hurt that the calm and capable sheriff is quite handsome and intriguing. Even if he seems to be always holding something back. Ms. LaRoux and students are pretty stellar sleuths. They are connecting dots and most assuredly assembling a big picture. Until the first in their group is brutally murdered. The pace of the investigation picks up and becomes a race to solve the mystery before any more lives are lost. Have You Seen Me? grabbed my attention immediately. I stayed totally engaged, sometimes turning pages fast enough for paper-cuts. The timing is impeccable, I just met with “my” students for the first time this school year and this this spot-on, YA-mind-boggling-mystery wherein every character could be a killer is exactly what they were asking for. This review was written by jv poore for Buried Under Books, with huge thanks for the Advance Review Copy to donate to my favorite classroom library.

    This was my first book to read by this author, but definitely will not be my last. I was hooked from the very first page. This thriller was fast paced and had me on the edge of my seat. The mystery was a cross between And Then There Were None and a teenage slasher flick. I enjoyed the elite boarding school setting. This is the first book of the series and I am looking forward to reading the next installment. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thank you BookSirens and Vesuvian Books for my ARC.

I think that this book probably has more appeal for its intended YA audience, because I found myself overthinking many of the actions of the characters, thinking they were very unrealistic. Aubrey LaRoux returns to the high school she attended, Waverly Prep, as a history teacher. Aubrey has a tumultuous history with the school, she was bullied by Marjorie who disappeared and no one knows what happened to her. Some other girls went missing that year as well. One of her former teachers is now the administrator, and when Aubrey steps foot on campus she discovers that another student has gone missing--Lindsay, the sister of Marjorie. A group of students wants to uncover what happened to their friend Lindsay, and they enlist Aubrey to help them investigate. This book has shades of some teen slasher movies sprinkled with a bit of Scooby Doo. As the bodies and disappearances pile up, suspicion is pointed in every direction. I had quite a few problems with the book overall. For as intelligent as Aubrey is (she went to Brown for undergrad) she doesn't act that way with the students. She allows herself to get sucked into things that no professional educator would participate in. There are so many missing students over the years, but none of the parents seem to care or even know, and the security seems very lax. One teacher to supervise 50 girls in a dorm? For all of its shortcomings, this is a well-written book and should appeal to teens looking for a mystery novel. If you can suspend some disbelief, you might enjoy the ride. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book, all opinions are my own.

Expected publication date: Aug 17, 2021 Aubrey LaRoux is both surprised and excited when she gets offered a position at Waverly Academy, teaching history. Aubrey spent her high school years at the elite academy, and she’s hoping to have a positive impact on its current student body. But there’s a pall over the school, as one of the students, Lindsey Gillett, is missing. Following the disappearance of Lindsey’s sister years ago, and the disappearance of several more students during the 90s, there is definitely a sinister force at play and Aubrey is dedicated to uncover the secrets before someone else disappears. One by one, Aubrey’s students start to disappear and when their bodies are discovered, Aubrey realizes just how far Waverly will go to cover up its secrets. Alexandrea Weis is the author of many novels, but “Have You Seen Me?” is my first experience with the award winning novelist. The setting itself, an elite prep school, has been done (and overdone). In fact, so many terrifyingly grim and horrible things have happened at prep schools in fiction novels that it makes me actually feel lucky I went to public school! Waverly Academy is your standard prep school, with horse stables and a swimming pool, but this one has a dark past related to the Native American feuds over the land itself and the plantation home that serves as the main living quarters for the administrator. There are a group of students that we meet right at the beginning, all of whom are immediately untrustworthy and not that likable but with lead character Aubrey’s help, they start to grow on me. Aubrey herself is charming and endearing to readers, as she struggles with demons from her past while trying to change the future. The ending of this novel was predictable, although Weiss adds several entertaining twists that subtley point the reader in a different direction. Fans of this genre will have a hint of the culprit right from the start, but it is definitely a pulse-pounding ride getting there! “Have You Seen Me?” has a strong lead character, and I loved the eerie grounds of Waverly, even if the plot was a bit derivative. Weis has intrigued me with her writing style, and I am curious enough to check out her other novels!

I also loved how this book had How to get away with murder stroke Scream (slasher movie) vibes.

Set in an elite boarding school where the wealthy attend amongst the odd scholarship student, over the years students have vanished and are never to be seen again. When teacher Aubrey LaRoux was at Waverley Prep, a girl who bullied her Marjorie disappeared and was never seen again. This was ten years ago. Now ten years later Aubrey has come to teach History and to her surprise, another girl has gone missing - Lindsey who turns out to be Marjorie's sister. Lindsey and her friends were investigating Marjorie's disappearance and the previous three that went missing in the '90s and discovered the identity of the killer. Now the killer is cleaning house and everyone who knows her secret is in trouble. Can Aubrey help solve the crime before any more of her close students are discovered dead? Have you Seen Me? by Alexandrea Weis reminded me of the late '90s / early 2000's slasher films like Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer.

    This was a fast paced and entertaining YA mystery. It centers on Aubrey, who takes a role as a teacher at an exclusive prep school where she was a student 10(ish) years ago. A girl has gone missing in an eerily similar manner to previous disappearances, including a girl that bullied Aubrey when she was there as a student.

She is able to gain their trust and help them investigate the string of disappearances, along with the help of the local sheriff. Scary things start happening and it’s very clear that someone does not want them looking into this. . The descriptions of the school and surrounding grounds were creepy and convincing and I enjoyed reading about them. While the story itself was a tad predictable, I did waver in my guess about who the villain was a couple times, and even though my initial assumption was right, the reasoning behind it was a twist. All in all, a fun young adult read for those who like horror and mystery books and a good old prep school secret. Thanks to Netgalley for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Now, another student named Lindsey Gillett is missing, and the esteemed school finds itself under scrutiny once again. Aubrey LaRoux is a former student at Waverly who has been invited back to fill in as a history teacher. Aubrey is eager to return and impact the school for the better, but she finds that that is much more difficult than she thought. Five of Lindsey's closest friends are determined to solve Lindsey's disappearance, and they rope Aubrey into helping them. What Aubrey hoped would be an ordinary teaching position turns into something more dangerous than she could ever imagine. I was very excited going into this book. As a history major, I really liked the historical element Alexandrea Weis added into the story, and the plot seemed to be quite intriguing. At first, I was a bit confused. The story is told primarily from Aubrey's point of view, but occasionally it shifts to the students' view in order to provide more information. I think it would have been better if it had been told solely from Aubrey's point of view so that it would not be so confusing. I really loved the romance in this book. (view spoiler)[At first, I was not entirely sure if I liked Mason or not, but I loved watching Aubrey slowly fall for him despite the tragedies. I also loved how her students picked up on it and would make comments about him to Aubrey in order to get a reaction out of her. (hide spoiler)] The story did seem to drag in parts, especially in the middle of the book, but overall it did a great job of capturing my attention. Once the plot started moving more, I was hooked. The only thing that made me really drop to a four-star review is that I could guess who the suspect was about halfway through the book. I had it narrowed down to two, but I was able to figure out who did it before it was revealed. Overall, it was a great YA mystery/thriller that I highly recommend! I received an ARC of this book from the author and BookSirens in exchange for an honest review.

    Alexandrea Weis is a master of thriller. Have you Seen Me grips you from the beginning, and it was just as intense and intriguing as Death by the River. If you like to read suspenseful stories with lots of mystery, and twist, look no further.

Feels a lot like Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer but make it an elite high school. The story starts when Aubrey, a former student of Waverly Prep returns there as a teacher. At the same time a girl name Lindsey who attends said school goes missing. A group of Aubrey’s new students then convince Aubrey to help them find out what happened to Lindsey and discover the truth about Waverly Prep. However, they soon realize someone is making sure the secrets stay buried. In short, if you know what you’re signing up for, you will most likely end up enjoying this a lot. This is the first book I read by Alexandrea Weis and I do like how she builds up the story and creates a chilling atmosphere. The book is fast paced and the way the scenes transition really feels like you’re watching a movie. It’s a typical slasher horror story which you’ll have to suspend some disbelief for. It’s got teenagers being left alone at most convenient times, a very quick insta love romance, limited set of characters so the killer might be a little predictable and so on. But overall, as a fan of this genre I really had fun reading this. The one thing I didn’t know was that this is not a standalone book since it was not noted anywhere. The ending left some questions open and then I did some research and saw this is the part of Waverly Prep Novels. The arc in this book is finished thought so it can also be read individually. I’m not sure how will the series be connected but I am interested in continuing the series to see where it goes.

Have You Seen Me? by Alexandrea Weis is a gripping, unputdownable thriller that will appeal to fans of They Never Learn and A Good GIrl's Guide to Murder. The story revolves around Aubrey LaRoux, a new black teacher at Waverly Prep, a prestigious private school. She had previously gone to Waverly Prep as a student, but now she's back as a teacher. When she arrives, she learned that a girl named Lindsey has gone missing, presumed dead, and a group of her first-period students entreat her to help them solve the disappearance. Aubrey agrees because Lindsey's sister went missing when Aubrey was a student. Where have these missing girls gone? And will Aubrey and her students find the answers before the murderer finds them? Here is a chilling excerpt from the Prologue, which is from Lindsey's point of view: "Tall stalks whipped against Lindsey’s legs as she ran. Her ragged breath broke through the silence of the dark, isolated field. She put everything she had into maneuvering through the deep weeds. Her chest burned, but an icy dread kept her desperate to outrun the beam of light following her. Exhausted, Lindsey paused and kneeled by a thicket of grass, hoping to remain out of sight. But then a flashlight locked on her position. She startled and stumbled backward, tripping over something. ... “Where are you going to run, Lindsey?” The nondescript, guttural voice seemed to surround her. Lindsey hurried to get up while scouring the trees. She judged the distance it would take her to get lost in their shadows. She surveyed the endless acres of grass. There was nowhere else to go." This book was enjoyable to read, and I couldn't put it down. I had to keep reading to find out who the murderer was, and there were plenty of murders to keep me interested. One highlight of this book is that the main character, Aubrey, is black. There aren't enough main characters who are PoC in the thriller genre, and I applaud the author for that choice. I did take off 1 star, because I found Aubrey to be too wimpy of a character. Maybe it's because I'm a teacher myself, but Aubrey doesn't know how to set boundaries with her students. Her students suspect her of being the killer? Oh, that's fine. Her students keep making inappropriate comments about her and the hunky sheriff? Oh, that's fine. Her students want to disobey police orders and head into areas that are off-limits? Oh, that's fine. I've never wanted to yell at a main character so much. On the positive side, the book has chapters from the students' perspectives, which is why I think it will have cross-over appeal from adult and YA readers If you're intrigued by the excerpt above, or if you're a fan of thrillers in general, I highly recommend that you check out this book when it comes out in August!

I literally could not stop reading it and thought for sure I knew who the killer was only to discover I was wrong. The twist ending is something I did not see coming. Aubrey LaRoux is a woman who once attended Waverly Prep school. While she was attending the school as a teen, a fellow student went missing, as well as several students from the 90's. She's back at the school, this time as a history teacher. She's immediately drawn in by some of the students who are investigating the recent disappearance of a girl named, Lindsey. One by one the students she's helping start dying and she's now in a race against time to uncover the truth of the school and find the murderer. I really enjoyed this story. At its core, its a murder mystery. I love a good murder mystery and even better is one that is action packed and keeps you guessing until the very end. Its also suspenseful and has a little romance in it that revolved around the teacher, Aubrey and the town sheriff Mason. I'm a sucker for a happy ending and this one did not disappoint. I really liked that it takes place in a real place, Louisiana. It brings things to life especially since I've been to Louisiana and I know what its like there. All together I felt this was a really good story and it even kind of ends on a cliff hanger. I could definitely see a sequel, Id like to see what happens with Aubrey and Mason and what happens to the school. I will definitely be looking for more from this author.

Weis is fast becoming the new queen of the Southern murder mystery. Aubrey LeRoux has returned to Waverly Prep, her old Southern college-prep school, but this time as the new history teacher. Aubrey was prepared for an icy reception from the hardened headmistress, who has not thawed much since Aubrey attended the historic school. What she wasn’t prepared for was discovering that Lindsey Gillett, one of the school’s students, has gone missing. Lindsey is not the first girl to disappear. The headmistress appears unbothered by these mysteries, but tasks Aubrey with keeping track of the girls to avoid unwanted press and to help tamp down any uneasiness on campus. Aubrey organizes a small student investigation team. But when the members start turning up dead across campus, she learns that someone wants to keep the past buried — along with anyone who gets in their way. Weis, co-author of the unputdownable YA thriller Death by the River, doesn’t waste any time sucking us straight into the story. After drawing us into the small town Louisiana atmosphere that she knows so well, she firmly establishes Aubrey as the primary sleuth from the get-go and equips her with the goods to question the establishment and ask the questions no one else will. The novel is filled with illuminating insights into the driving forces of her character (“…Sick over her predicament but knowing she would have to go along. It wasn’t out of fear of discovery, or her students’ strong-arm tactics that motivated her—it was curiosity.”). While the school’s chilly director quips that “it’s the scars that get us in the end,” Aubrey uses those scars as a source of strength, coming into her own as she confronts her past and sheds the insecurities she once felt as a student on scholarship. Along the way, her sharp interactions with students and peers alike continuously ratchet up the tension. Weis doesn’t settle for quiet observations to carry the story. She arms Aubrey with both the chutzpah and the curiosity to shake up the establishment and earn her investigative stripes.

While it is definitely a YA thriller, I found my self pulled into the story and could not put it down. Aubrey LaRoux returns to the prep school she attended to teach history. Ten years ago Aubrey's nemesis disappeared and was never found. Her history class seems to be made of up an eclectic group of students, one of which disappears soon before Aubrey arrives, and she just happens to be the nemesis's sister. The class tries to solve the mystery of all of the girls who have disappeared over the years with the aim to find their friend, Lindsey. Something evil lurks around Waverly Academy and the secrets go back over a century. Every time there seems to be a break in the case of the missing Lindsey, another issue pops up. Finding the murder is the challenge, and the body count keeps racking up as the students and Aubrey continue their search. Enter the sheriff, Mason, and there is a spark between him and Aubrey. This book checks all my reader boxes: a strong female lead, great characters, a budding romance, intrigue, thriller elements, and a unique setting and storyline. Ms. Weis is one of my favorite authors and I always find her books interesting and intriguing, with a well thought out storyline and great writing. Her characters are well developed and her setting is always somewhere she has direct knowledge of: Louisiana, which happens to be one of my favorite areas of the country. If you like smart writing, great characters, an engrossing plot, and a thrilling read, I highly recommend this book. I'm hoping there is a followup coming because I'm sure Waverly Academy has many more secrets.

    Anxious for a fresh start and relieved at the opportunity to exorcise demons from her past, Aubrey LaRoux returns to Waverly Preparatory School, her Alma Mater in the reverse role as a teacher rather than a student. Not much has changed she notices by the parking lot full of BMWs as well as the imposing presence of Head Mistress Sara Probst. There was also a situation of another missing student from the campus, the sister of a girl who supposedly ran away when Aubrey was a student here. As Aubre Anxious for a fresh start and relieved at the opportunity to exorcise demons from her past, Aubrey LaRoux returns to Waverly Preparatory School, her Alma Mater in the reverse role as a teacher rather than a student. Not much has changed she notices by the parking lot full of BMWs as well as the imposing presence of Head Mistress Sara Probst. There was also a situation of another missing student from the campus, the sister of a girl who supposedly ran away when Aubrey was a student here. As Aubrey settles into her new life, her students become increasingly curious about her connection to the mysterious disappearance of their new teacher’s former classmate. When students once again begin disappearing, Aubrey finds herself in the center of suspicion. Have You Seen Me? By Alexandrea Weis is a fast-paced tale of smoke and mirrors that successfully sucks in the reader and doesn’t let go until the turning of the final page. Strong personalities and believable character traits add to a closely-knit storyline. As the main character works toward gaining her student’s trust, she painfully fortifies a necessary backbone in coping with past fears and insecurities. The setting of Waverly Preparatory School fits its description of upper-class private education and allows for a dark atmosphere that complements the story’s overall mood. Vivid descriptions and explicit crime scenes are evident and probably not appropriate for young and/or impressionable readers. Alexandrea Weis allows for the possibility of a sequel in her unexpected twist at the end. Fun read.

    Aubrey LaRoux is returning to Waverly Prep School as a history teacher 10 years after she was a student there, where the stern and formidable Ms. Sara Probst, still the Headmistress, welcomes her. The year Aubrey left, Margery, a girl who bullied her, went missing. Along with Margery, there were 3 other girls who went missing in the past, and now another student, Lindsey, was missing. No one had ever discovered what had happened to the missing students. As Aubrey meets with her first class, much Aubrey LaRoux is returning to Waverly Prep School as a history teacher 10 years after she was a student there, where the stern and formidable Ms. Sara Probst, still the Headmistress, welcomes her. The year Aubrey left, Margery, a girl who bullied her, went missing. Along with Margery, there were 3 other girls who went missing in the past, and now another student, Lindsey, was missing. No one had ever discovered what had happened to the missing students. As Aubrey meets with her first class, much smaller than expected, the five students question her about Margery’s disappearance, and convince her to help them search for clues to find Lindsey. As Aubrey gets to know the students, they talk her into taking a field trip to the forbidden old battleground. But when this group of students start to disappear or die, one by one, Aubrey decides to involve the police, sharing what the students have told her. This is a rather eerie story, with intense action, and a totally unexpected ending! I really like Aubrey and the courage she displays trying to get to the bottom of what’s happening! I received a free advance copy of the book from Book Sirens, and write this review voluntarily.

    This was a good book and great writing. The author did a good job building up the suspense to who the killer was. I can usually figure out who the killer is and it was a surprise. I really enjoyed this book.

    If you turned a teen slasher movie into a book, you would pretty much have the basis of Have You Seen Me?, albeit with an adult as the protagonist of the story. Aubrey returns to the prep school she attended as a student, arriving just after the younger sister of a girl who bullied her disappears. Lindsay's motley group of friends think Aubrey might be involved since Marjorie, the older sister disappeared too.

Lindsay's motley group of friends think Aubrey might be involved since Marjorie, the older sister disappeared too. The kids end up convinced Aubrey has nothing to do with it and recruit her to help them figure out who's behind the disappearing students - the only problems being the headmistress is opposed to anything that makes the school look bad and new murders begin to happen. At times the book feels a bit uneven, sometimes the storyline and the characters feel a little inconsistent, sometimes the writing too formal, and the reveal feels too predictable, but it's still a fun and suspenseful book.

Might be too graphic for the younger side if YA. Felt more NA than YA. Some slower areas but overall I was pretty hooked.

    A really fun and frightening teen slasher with fast pace action and chilling atmosphere. Can't help but notice a few people want to read way too much into it. Remember Friday the 13th, Halloween, and I Know What You Did Last Summer? There you go. Perfect for Halloween season or anytime you're looking for a fun scare. If you're looking for straight Agatha Christie mystery look elsewhere; this is an older YA horror/thriller. A really fun and frightening teen slasher with fast pace action and chilling atmosphere.

Aubrey LeRoux, once a student at Waverly, has just returned, joining the school staff as a history teacher. But soon she becomes involved in an investigation into Lindsey’s disappearance. The small group of students is determined to find the answers but Aubrey suspects there’s much more going on than anyone suspects. What is the secret that someone is so desperate to protect? And how many more students must die before the truth is revealed? Well-drawn, interesting characters populate this mysterious narrative that pulls readers in from the outset. The pace is relentless, the tension palpable. Unexpected plot twists keep readers guessing [although astute readers may identify the murderer before the tense revelation]. Despite several gruesome deaths, readers will find much to appreciate in this suspenseful tale and will find it difficult to set this book aside until they’ve turned the final page. Although there is a clear solution to the mystery surrounding the missing girls and the murders, there remains a bit of a cliffhanger suggesting this might be the beginning of a series. Recommended.
