Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

A fusion of ghost story and crime thriller, it also combines poetry and fiction to striking and exciting effect. The Saturday Paper, Australia
Fascinating, gripping, innovative. Magpies Magazine
A ghost story as well as a psychological thriller, The Things She's Seen seamlessly weaves together the poetic and the everyday. A magnificent and life-giving novel. Justine Larbalestier
Terrible crimes lie at the centre here; viewed through the eyes of young women of unquenchable spirit, they can be approached, examined, and ultimately solved. This novel will turn gazes in the right direction, and make the caw of every crow more resonant. Margo Lanagan
An intense, addictive book. Shocking and heartbreaking truths come to light, and the book deftly examines racism, violence, terrible historic injustices and corruption within the police force. This is a book that shows trauma and survival. It's completely gripping, and while highly recommended for young adults, it also deserves a wider readership. Readings, Australia
** Winner of the Aurealis Award for Best Young Adult Novel** A Notable Book of 2019, Children's Book Council of Australia
The Things She’s Seen packs a massive punch; it’s the kind of novel that stays with you and reaffirms just how significant teen literature can be. Locus 
Sibling authors Ambelin and Ezekiel Kwaymullina pack an astonishing amount of storytelling and intensity in their relatively short young adult novel. Devastatingly beautiful. Booklist
"The two Australian Aboriginal girls at the center of The Things She’s Seen discover just how poisonous silencing can be and how much power it takes to finally break through it. Bulletin
The brief, well-crafted novel, written by a sister-brother team… is a welcome #OwnVoices addition to YA shelves. The Horn Book ** Winner of Australia's prestigious Victorian Premier's Literary Award for Writing for Young Adults
An #ownvoices story that empowers its female heroines, giving them pride in their lineage and power in remembering. Kirkus Reviews, Starred
