Editorial Reviews

Review

“Haunting and mysterious. Jennifer Archer delivers a supernatural read unlike any other! Spooky in the best way!” (Sophie Jordan, author of Firelight)

“A tightly written time-travel fantasy. The quirky characters; romantic triangles; and ghosts and haunted houses make for a winning, mixed-genre offering that’s sure to attract a wide audience of teen readers.” (Booklist)

“An inventive ghost story. Archer writes distinctive characters and paces the story well, producing a supernatural tale with depth and originality.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“An evocative and unusual ghost story. Archer’s engrossing story gracefully weaves together the contemporary and historical into an eerie mystery, while examining relationships, reality, and the power of the mind.” (Publishers Weekly)

The mother of two grown sons, Jennifer lives in Amarillo, Texas, with her husband and two dogs.

The other part of the story that was amazingly well done was the plot.
The Book Scout
This is where the story should pick up, but it actually feels more like a lull - a bit too drawn out, but still enjoyable.
Nikki (Wicked Awesome Books)
A tantalizing mystery, a blossoming romance, and an eerie ghost story, THROUGH HER EYES is well worth curling up with.

Format: Hardcover
Tansy Piper has been uprooted and moved from city to city, from home to home. With no roots to plant of her own, she has called Boston, Seattle, and even sunny California home. But the newest place her novelist mother has brought them will never be Tansy's home. Cedar Canyon, a small Podunk town located in Texas' panhandle holds tight to it's outdated traditions and even tighter to the local gossip and ghost stories. Tansy will never consider this place "home." But when Tansy finds out the house her mother claims is the perfect setting for her next horror novel - The Screaming Meemies - Tansy finds herself stuck in her own horror story.

Not only is she stuck in the middle of nowhere, but she also has to face being the new girl once again. You'd think she'd be used to it, but being the lonely outsider is something no one, not even Tansy could get used to. What Tansy doesn't realize is that those are the least of her teenage horrors. It seems that Henry Peterson, the disturbed teen who once lived in the house and who committed suicide by plummeting off a bridge, is trying to send a message to Tansy. A message that doesn't necessarily involve her, but her Alzheimer ailing grandfather Papa Dan. How is Henry trying to contact Tansy?

Not through apparitions or random haunted house noises. No, it seems that when Tansy looks through her viewfinder she sees a world that once was, a world where Henry was alive and as well as well could be. Startling though, it's when Tansy looks at the photographs she's taken though the found crystal pendant she's suddenly transported to another time - a time when Papa Dan was simply Daniel, a time where Henry Peterson lived and breathed, a time when she's able to witness everything that happened so long ago through another person's eyes.

Title Thoughts: Love the title because it really goes with the book.

WARNINGS: An obsessive read.

This book hooks you from the very beginning with Tansy's character. She moves from place to place with her writer mother and her grandfather who is suffering from dementia. Archer crafts this story to near perfection. (There's not one negative thing I can say about this book.) Tansy sticks to being herself in Cedar Canyon. She's not going to change just to fit in. We see Tansy mature as the story progresses and it's a book that leaves you completely satisfied.

My favorite character was Bethyl Ann. She's a thirteen year old girl who skipped two grades and is a genius sophomore. Not only is she academically smart, but she's life smart too. She's very mature for her age and is a great friend who loves Shakespeare. She's funny too!

As I read, I could feel the tone of the book change with the characters and the story. It was unbelievable. It's like you are watching a movie and you have the background music to help set the tone.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Kate B. VINE VOICE on June 11, 2011
Format: Hardcover
On the outside, Through Her Eyes had everything that I was looking for: paranormal, mystery, different medium for said paranormal. But on the inside, it really did not live up to what I had hoped it would be.

Through Her Eyes starts off on the right foot. Girl uplifted, again, from normalcy to follow her mother around country has she writes horror novels. When the family moves into an older mansion-type home, Tansy, our main character, discovers some trinkets left behind. These trinkets lead her to discover the mystery surrounding the home and teen that once lived there.

While the novel did start off in a good direction, it seems that nothing really happens after that.. until the almost very end of the novel. I am not one who usually gives up on a book due to slow pacing.. but Through Her Eyes definitely tried my patience.

As for the paranormal aspect, I was really surprised by how well done it was. Many cultures have interesting ideas about cameras, and the often funny notion that by getting your picture taken, your soul will be taken as well. I have not seen the camera used too often in the way that Archer incorporated it, so I was pretty refreshing to see her take on this.

Despite some major pacing hang-ups, Through Her Eyes was well done. The characters were easy to relate to. The plot was pretty original. And for some reason, I have become a sucker for novels with ghosts in them. For that alone, I would recommend Through Her Eyes. But with everyone taken into consideration, it was a good novel, but not exactly as great as I would have liked.
