Praise for THE LAST REAL GIRL:


“Warman’s taut prose is pitched perfectly for her subject matter, managing to make the high school drama feel high-stakes and creepy by turns… The author’s sharp senses of pacing and character make this a thoroughly enjoyable read. Readers will be waiting with anticipation for future volumes. A captivating teen mystery in a secretive lakeside town.” -Kirkus Reviews


“An intriguing blend of realism and reflection, unsettling discoveries and natural consequences… In this young adult mystery, nothing can be taken for granted and no one connected to the missing girl is untouched.” -Foreword Reviews


Book Description:

When 17-year-old Reese first moved to the wealthy, lakeshore town of St. Clair over five years ago, she never expected someone like Charlotte Walters to take her under her wing. Charlotte is everything that Reese is not: rich, gorgeous, and carefree, living with her enigmatic older brother and her parents in a mansion at the top of the lake.


But when senior year starts, everything seems off. Reese notices that Charlotte’s older brother Aiden keeps coming back from college to hang around on weekends, stoic and grim. And Charlotte’s parents seem more distracted, almost lost. Meanwhile, Charlotte keeps insisting to Reese that nothing is wrong, and decides to host a Halloween party with the theme of “missing girls.”


That night, at the party, Charlotte goes missing.


Everyone who attended becomes an instant suspect, from Charlotte’s brother (who argued with Charlotte earlier that night), to Charlotte’s field hockey teammate (who wasn’t invited to the party in the first place), to Reese herself (who was the last person to see Charlotte alive, out near the lake). 


With the clock ticking, Reese must unravel what happened to her best friend, and dig through the layers of secrets protecting people in St. Clair. Because now, being the quiet sidekick won’t cut it. And maybe only an outsider to St. Clair can truly confront all of the town’s dark mysteries.

Book Description:

It's been four days, and 17-year-old Reese Elderwood still has no idea what happened to her missing best friend, Charlotte Walters.


Charlotte disappeared at her own house on a Saturday night, in the middle of a Halloween party with the theme of "missing girls." And so far, no one has any answers. Charlotte's parents and older brother are still acting strange, a classmate whom Reese used to have a crush on has been giving her cryptic hints and warnings, and the police have made a shocking discovery in the lake that raises only more questions.


But Reese is not about to give up on her best friend. The affluent, lakeshore town of St. Clair has always been a place full of secrets, but Reese will make sure that what happened to Charlotte doesn't remain one of them.


Her first order of business? Making a trip to Charlotte's neighbor's house, where an elusive boy drops hints that the mystery Reese is unraveling is bigger than she could have imagined—and that if Reese keeps investigating, she may discover that her best friend was keeping more than just a few secrets from her.

Book Description:

Almost one week ago, 17-year-old Reese watched her best friend, Charlotte Walters, run laughing out of a party and into the woods by the lake.


Charlotte never returned.


Since then, Reese has followed up on every lead, talked to every suspect at the party, and found out secrets about Charlotte and St. Clair that she never would have believed. And yet, Charlotte is still missing.


Even a heart-wrenching confession from one of the partygoers has only solved one mystery, and opened up many others. Reese begins to ask herself: how well did she actually know Charlotte? Can she trust any of the people around her, including Charlotte’s enigmatic older brother? And will she ever find Charlotte at all?


Soon, Reese realizes that she’ll have to stake everything on one final effort, because time for Charlotte is running out. Now, Reese will finally get the answers she’s been seeking—if she’s brave enough to face them. But one last secret from Charlotte’s family may just change everything.
