Book one of the Flocksdale Files Series by Carissa Ann Lynch is the 4 star Have You Seen This Girl. This story covers dark parts of our world even in America: human trafficking, drugs, and slavery. The only good news is while all the unsettling notes about these problems are there, it is not shown in too much detail that will leave you completely gut wrenched. There are books out there that go into depth the struggles some people are faced with when their freedom is removed. It is still, at times, very upsetting to read about, but is no where near a graphic level. It is a true adventure from start to finish as you go with Wendi on her painful journey back home.
Wendi Wise is the victim of a kidnapping that leads her down a dark road away from all she loves and knows. At thirteen, her and her best friend, Claire, try to explore their little part of the world and end up with the wrong crowd.

After years away from Flocksdale, Wendi now going by Elsie McClain…is making her way back to right the wrongs that she was forced to be a part of. The years of hiding are coming to an end and everything lines up for her to take her revenge.
