When you can see things others can't, what do you do when someone's watching you?
Everybody knows about Clarity "Clare" Fern. She's the psychic girl in school, the one who can place her hands on something and see hidden visions from the past.
Only Clare would rather not be a celebrity. She prefers hanging back, observing. Her gift is not a game to her.
But then someone starts playing with her head . . . and heart. Messages and gifts from a secret admirer crop up everywhere Clare turns. Could they be from Gabriel, the gorgeous boy who gets Clare's pulse racing? Or from Justin, Clare's hopeful ex-boyfriend who'd do anything to win her back?
One thing is certain. Clare needs to solve this mystery, and soon. Because the messages are becoming sinister, and a girl in town has suddenly disappeared.
This series is so much fun to read! I find that Kim Harrington's writing is very simple and easy to follow. I really liked the first book in the series and Perception is just as good.
Clarity and her family are trying to start over and continue as if things never happened. Only now, Clarity finds herself hanging with the popular crowd, and her brother barely leaves his bedroom. Her mother seems to be the only person whose life hasn't been thrown off track. To top it off Clarity has two hot guys after her heart. No way are things going back to normal for her. I think Clarity's gift to be able to see things whenever she touches an item is so cool. I would love to get something really old from the fifteen hundreds and see who has touched it and learn the story behind it. How cool would that be?
If you haven't read Clarity, I think you should, and then pick up Perception. Even though its two different plots, the first book introduces you to Clarity and her family and helps you understand how their world works. This is a series that isn't complicated and very entertaining. I really hope there will be a third one. I love how each book continues Clarity's story, but with different events taking place.
4 out of 5 Stars!
