Product description

Glass-eyed monsters. Stolen colours. A ghost. A witness. This is no fantasy. It’s a murder mystery in an Aboriginal town… Nothing’s been the same for Beth Teller since she died. Her dad is the only one who can see and hear her. He’s a detective, but he’s drowning in grief. Only a suspected murder might save them both. They have a mystery to solve. And they have a potential witness: Isobel Catching. She’s Aboriginal, like Beth, and she seems equally lost in the world. Can Beth reach out to her? But as the two get closer, Isobel’s strange tale of glass-eyed monsters and stolen colours reveals something dark and terrible at the heart of their Australian town…

  • Winner of the Victorian Premier YA Prize for Literature
