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?

This book has been the far best murder mystery I have read. I was on the edge of my seat and biting my nails through reading CLARITY. The book is filled with twists and turns and I couldn't trust anyone.

I felt horrible for Clarity (Clare). She was made fun of in school and had no friends because of her psychic gift. Her family needed the money they received by doing psychic readings to pay the bills off during the Winter and life just seemed tough for Clare. Then a murder happens and all the tourists freak out. But to solve the case comes in a new Detective from NYC with his drop dead gorgeous son, Gabriel. Clare immediatly falls for him and Gabriel does for her until he finds out she's a psychic.

He has the "thing" against psychics and Clare's old boyfriend, Justin, is in on solving the case. I was glad when Clare was picking up things with her psychi abilities, but she did capture images that she didn't want to see. The her brother, Perry, is taken by the police because on the night Victoria died, Perry was with her. Even though Clare knows her brother is innocent, she can't help but wonder. I did at times too.

And then arrives the ending. Out of all my guesses of who killed Victoria, I was wrong. I stayed up late at night wanting to finish this book because I had just had to know who killed Victoria. And let me tell you, you're going to be suprised.

I can't wait for the next book, PERCEPTION and see what else is going to happen in Clare's life. CLARITY was a great murder mystery and a great start to a new series.
