"The Things She's Seen" by Ambelin and Ezekiel Kwaymullina


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 she’s got a mystery to solve… 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... 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 heart breaking story lurking beneath the surface of a small town.


*Here are the following pages that you will receive with your kit!*
