Lindsey Gillett is missing.

And she's not the first girl at Waverly Prep to vanish without a trace.

To help cope with the tragedy, new history teacher Aubrey LeRoux organizes a small student investigation team. But when the members start turning up dead across campus, Aubrey suspects there's more going on than anyone is willing to admit.

The murdered students all had something in common with Lindsey. They shared a secret. And what they uncovered could threaten the future of the historic school.

At Waverly Prep, someone wants to keep the past buried—along with anyone who gets in their way.



“Don’t let the students bully you,” Sara advised as they walked past a group of girls, their heads bent in avid whispering. “I know you were prone to that when you were here as a student.”

“That was a long time ago, Ms. Probst. I’ve worked for East Baton Rouge Parish Public School system for a year. No one bullies me anymore.”

Sara cocked her head. “You’re still an inexperienced teacher, and this is your first assignment at a private institution. These kids aren’t like the ones you encountered before. Sons and daughters of the wealthy sometimes have larger chips on their shoulders to knock off. Be careful how you approach them.”

Hot anger stirred in Aubrey’s chest. “Is that how you saw me when I came here?”

Sara glanced ahead to the red brick buildings surrounding The Quad. “You came here thanks to a scholarship. The Creole Catholic Society, if I remember correctly.”

Aubrey held her head high. “My parents worked hard to get me here, even with that scholarship.”

Sara nodded. “Your parents were good people. I heard of their passing.”

The mention of the most horrible day of Aubrey’s life tore through her like a blowtorch. The drunk driver who had taken out her father’s car on the way back from an anniversary dinner still sat in Angola Jail, serving out his twenty years. The memory of the remorseful father of two dragged from the courtroom in chains always roused a bitter taste in her mouth. No one had won, as her lawyer had promised. Now she not only mourned her parents but the life of the man who had killed them.

“I didn’t realize you knew.”

Sara sized her up. “I read about the trial in the Baton Rouge newspaper. That must have been difficult for you.”

Aubrey knew that formidable gaze. She’d encountered it numerous times during her four years at the school. It was another facet of Sara Probst that remained fresh in her memory. The school director’s lack of compassion and her intolerance for emotional outbursts were legendary.

“I survived,” she said in a deadpan voice.

“We all survive, Ms. LaRoux. It’s the scars that get us in the end.” She motioned to one of the red brick buildings. “I will show you to your room in the dorms first. We’ve added a wing since you were here.”

Praise for Have You Seen Me?

“A fast-paced thriller that will engage readers with great characters and a chilling mystery! I was sucked in and fully invested in finding the killer!!”
~Gretchen Hall, Barnes and Noble, Houston, TX

"Alexandrea Weis addresses cultural issues such as class systems, race, and bullying all the while providing chilling and spooky imagery that is sure to have all readers begging the question: "Who will be next?” A thrilling spine-tingling novel, Have You Seen Me? had my heart racing on every page."
~Tanya Roberts @bookswihtanya, CER at Indigo Books, Québec Canada

“Riveting, fast paced thriller wrapped up in a mystery. Is history repeating itself or is it a coincidence? Alexandrea Weis slowly peels away layer after layer to reveal the truth. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it even if you don’t usually read thrillers.”
~Erin E. Forys, Barnes and Noble, Williamsburg, VA

“With atmosphere, mercurial threats, and intrigue, Alexandrea Weis excels in probing the psychological undertones of a prep school and a new teacher’s return to her past. She also does a fine job of evolving the plot that connects students and teachers to an unpredictable truth. As school and local history are revealed by the determined team, readers receive an eerie feel of inevitable disaster much in the manner of the classic film 'Picnic at Hanging Rock'. The buildup that leads to the truth about the killer's identity makes for a fine story that will reach from young adult to adult audiences with a winning exploration of prep school pressures, politics, and the special interests that lead to murder. Very nicely done.” ~Midwest Book Review
