Through Her Eyes- Jennifer Archer

Cover Image


Every ghost has a story to tell.

The last place Tansy Piper wants to be is stuck in Cedar Canyon, Texas, in the middle of nowhere, with a bunch of small-town kids. But when her mother decides to move to the desolate West Texas town, Tansy has no choice but to go along. Once there, Tansy is immediately drawn to the turret of their rickety old house, a place she soon learns has a disturbing history. But it's the strange artifacts she finds in the cellar—a pocket watch, a journal of poetry, and a tiny crystal—that have the most chilling impact on her.

Tansy soon finds that through the lens of her camera, she can become part of a surreal black-and-white world where her life is intertwined with that of mysterious, troubled Henry, who lived in the same house and died decades earlier. It seems their lives are linked by fate and the artifacts she found, but as Tansy begins spending more and more time in the past, her present world starts to fade away. Tansy must untangle herself from Henry's dangerous reality—before she loses touch with her own life forever.


If you’re someone who’s ever wondered what it would be like to live someone else’s life, this is definitely a book you should make time for. The descriptions and scenery of this excellently worded masterpiece literally give you the insight of looking through the main character’s mind and thoughts. If there were and more detail in this book, it’d be a very high brow pop-up picture book. This is something I’d love to see done as a movie, which is something I’ve never said about a book before.

Seeing as how it involves alcohol and smoking as well some intermittent “snogging” and “shite” like that, I’d rate this as a 12+/ 13+ A
