    The first in Henry's Point Last Seen series follows three teen volunteers with Portland Search and Rescue after they discover the body of a homeless girl while looking for an autistic man lost in the woods. The girl was strangled, and true crime enthusiast Ruby believes she isn't the first; another homeless girl was found strangled a month earlier. When Detective Harriman rebuffs her eager theories, Ruby rallies Alexis and Nick to investigate. Blustering Nick wants to be as brave as his father, who died in combat. Empathetic Alexis, meanwhile, is haunted by the vulnerability of the homeless, especially since she is barely making ends meet with her mentally ill mother. And socially inept Ruby is so obsessed that she ignores the danger of catching the killer's eye. Henry uses rotating viewpoints, including the killer's, to develop both character and mystery. The fast-paced plot, mirroring familiar TV crime procedurals, makes this a good choice for reluctant readers, especially as it's possible to follow the clues and identify the killer before the final showdown. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: With books like Girl, Stolen (2010), Henry has become a leading light in YA mystery. Readers whipping through her other books will move smoothly on to this one.
