I don’t really feel all that interested in reading The Things She’s Seen by Ambelin and Ezekiel Kwaymullina. Ghosts have never really been my thing and I have to deeply enjoy something else about the plot to read books that are primarily about them. As this novel seems to be headed in the direction of potential murder mystery, or at least crime fiction I can safely say that I’m good to skip this one.
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, a mystery that will hopefully remind her detective father that he is still alive, that there is a life after Beth that is still worth living.
Who is Isobel Catching, and why is she able to see Beth, too? What is her connection to the crime Beth’s father has been sent to investigate–a gruesome fire at a home for troubled youth that left an unidentifiable body behind? What happened to the people who haven’t been seen since the fire?
As Beth and her father unravel the mystery, they find a shocking and heartbreaking story lurking beneath the surface of a small town, and a friendship that lasts beyond one life and into another…
What are your thoughts about The Things She’s Seen? What do you think of the ghost aspect? How about the fact that her dad can see her? And the other girl? What do you think of the mystery? Do you think you’ll be adding this book to your TBR or, like me, passing it up? Let me know in the comments!
