    Kira has few memories of her early life. The strongest one is of the moment she was found in the woods by Silver, a search-and-rescue German shepherd, and Cady Bennett, her handler. Though aging, Silver still looks out for Kira, now a teenager living with Cady and the rest of her adopted family and training a dog of her own. Then Cady's estranged father shows up: a girl has gone missing in the wilderness, and he needs help. As the search intensifies, it becomes clear that the girl is not just missing, she was taken—and if Kira is going to be any help at all, she'll have to control the traumatic memories this search is unearthing for her. Barnes smartly maps the psychological landscape of a girl working through her early-life trauma, which makes this mystery, seen through Kira's eyes, layered and compelling. The wilderness survival component ups the stakes, and for animal-loving teens, the dogs add an intriguing and little-seen element. A moody, gripping puzzle. Grades 9-12.
