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?
Clarity is an absolutely thrilling read that will have you on the edge of your seat trying to figure out all the pieces to the puzzle. I was glued to the pages and any time I was forced to set it down, I was counting down until I could read some more.
Clarity is just merely an awesome character. She was so spunky and I loved her confidence she has. There is a hilarious scene where she just dumps a soda on this snotty girl and I was sitting her cheering for Clare! I also am officially declaring myself Team Gabin, as I can’t choose between Justin and Gabriel as they are both awfully lovely. Both of these guys were so swoon worthy and awesome.
I loved the mystery! It was so fun to try to figure out everything. While the story is a murder mystery, it still has a very light feel to it. There was a great mix of lighthearted, funny scenes with the more serious ones. Clarity will keep you absolutely captivated.
I absolutely adored every page of this book. It has made it’s way on to my list of favorites, and is one of the best books I have read in a long time. Clarity is the sort of book that one could reread over and over, yet still never get bored, as it just has a certain quality to it that never gets old.
