When you can see things others can't, where do you look for the truth?
This paranormal murder mystery will have teens reading on the edge of their seats.
Clarity "Clare" Fern sees things. Things no one else can see. Things like stolen kisses and long-buried secrets. All she has to do is touch a certain object, and the visions come to her. It's a gift.
And a curse.
When a teenage girl is found murdered, Clare's ex-boyfriend wants her to help solve the case--but Clare is still furious at the cheating jerk. Then Clare's brother--who has supernatural gifts of his own--becomes the prime suspect, and Clare can no longer look away. Teaming up with Gabriel, the smoldering son of the new detective, Clare must venture into the depths of fear, revenge, and lust in order to track the killer. But will her sight fail her just when she needs it most?
Ms. Harrington's debut novel is fantastic. I really liked Claire and her family. Each of them had a unique ability that made the book interesting. I finished the book rather quickly because I could not put it down. I have always enjoyed books about mediums and psychics but Clarity is one of the best I have read so far. Claire "Clarity" and her family were considered freaks by the townspeople in their town but they have a lot to give to the town. Claire was a remarkable teenager full of spunk, adventure and was able to stand up for what she believes. The plot was fantastic and had me guessing throughout the entire book. The opening line "YOU DON'T WANT TO KILL ME," I SAID, "Of course I Don't, Claire. But I have to." had me hooked. I thought that I knew who the killer was but I was surprised at the end. Ms. Harrington is a wonderful writer and I hope that she continues to write about Claire and her family. This is a 5 star novel.
