Clarity, a.k.a. Clare, is not a typical teenage girl and she definitely does not come from a typical family. Each member of her family has a special gift: her mother Starla is telepathic, her brother Periwinkle “Perry” is a medium and Clare’s gift is retro-cognitive psychometry. In layman’s terms, that means that she can sometimes get visions of actions or emotions from the past when she touches an object some else has touched. Her gift comes in very handy in the family business, “Readings By The Fern Family”. But, one thing, or person, that Clare cannot see is the one who is stalking her…

Clare has to find out who this secret admirer is and exactly what their intentions are. They obviously know about her and her gift so how can she find out who has been lurking in the shadows?

Perception was well written and kept me on the edge of my seat. It had just enough twists and turns to keep me guessing without feeling overly done.

Perception is the second book in the Clarity series by Kim Harrington. That said, I did not read the first book and did not feel that I was missing any key essentials to the story. There were a few descriptions of past events that let me know just enough to be able to follow this story correctly.

I really loved Perception and will probably go back and read the first novel just to find out some of the past behind one of my new favorite characters. I highly recommend the book to any fans of YA novels with mystery and suspense.

Rating: ★★★★½
