    *Winner of the Victorian Premier YA Prize for Literature, and
    Best Young Adult Novel at the Aurealis Awards - two of Australia's most prestigious writing awards*

    An extraordinary thriller
    , told from the perspective of two Aboriginal protagonists, which weaves together themes of grief, colonial history, violence, love and family.

    Nothing's been the same for Beth Teller since she died.

    Her dad, a detective, is the only one who can see and hear her, and he's drowning in grief. Only a suspected murder, and a mystery to solve, might save them both.

    And they have a potential witness: Isobel Catching. Aboriginal by birth, like Beth, she seems lost and isolated in the world.

    But as the two get closer, Isobel's strange tale of glass-eyed monsters and stolen colours will intertwine with Beth's investigation - and reveal something dark and terrible at the heart of this Australian town . . .

Ambelin and Ezekiel Kwaymullina are a brother-sister team of Aboriginal writers who come from the Palyku people of the Pilbara region of Western Australia. They've worked together on a number of short novels and picture books. Catching Teller Crow is their first joint young adult novel. They believe in the power of storytelling to create a more just world.
