The Things She’s Seen

The Things She’s Seen

Nothing’s been the same for Beth Teller since the day she died. Her dad is drowning in grief.

He’s also the only one who has been able to see and hear her since the accident. But now they’ve got a mystery to solve, a mystery that will hopefully remind her detective father that he needs to reconnect with the living. The case takes them to a remote Australian town, where there’s been a suspicious fire.

All that remains are an unidentifiable body and an unreliable witness found wandering nearby. This witness speaks in riddles. Isobel Catching has a story to tell, and it’s a tale to haunt your dreams—but does it even connect to the case at hand?

As Beth and her father unravel the mystery, they find a shocking and heartbreaking story lurking beneath the surface of a small town.

Cosmopolitan called The Things She’s Seen by Ambelin Kwaymullina & Ezekiel Kwaymullina one of the best YA books you’ll be obsessed with in 2019. Now in paperback, with an updated, more commercial cover, this thriller is poised to break out to an even wider audience.

“Utterly captivating. Ghost story, murder mystery, haunting Aboriginal fable—The Things She’s Seen checks every spooky box you could want.” —Paste Magazine
