Summary: 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.
Review: I read Clarity, the first book in this series, when in first came out and I was amazed. I was even more blown away by Perception, the sequel.
One of my favorite things about this series has to be Clare and the other supporting characters. All of them managed to win me over once again. Clare and all her crazy friends have such a special place in my heart. I just love Clare's Mom and her brother, Perry. They are just spectacular!
How could you not like the two boys vying for Clare's affection? Justin and Gabriel are wonderful. I have my favorite but I don't want to spoil anything for you! The love triangle in Perception is so well done. I'm not a huge fan of love triangles but Harrington absolutely nails it. Even if you don't like love triangles you might want to give this series a try!
Harrington does even better on the mystery. She also did a great job with the creepiness factor! There were a couple of times where I was pretty spooked. I had my suspicions about who the "bad guy" was but you are kept guessing for awhile in Perception. The paranormal ability thing was also well done.
If I'm not mistaken this is the last book in the series, but not hold me to it. If it is, it definitely went out well. Perception is a very smart, funny book that has wonderful characters who win you over quickly.
