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? -Goodreads
I really like the main character, Clarity. She’s different, but she doesn’t let that bother her much. I love strong heroines, and she’s definitely a kick-butt character. I loved her! The two love interests in the book are Clarity’s ex-boyfriend Justine, and the new town sheriff’s son, Gabriel. I am usually really good at picking a ‘team’, but I love both of these boys. It would be really hard to choose between them.
I can honestly say I didn’t see the end coming. The author had me second guessing myself so many times throughout the book. In the end, I didn’t have it figured out. I love a book that keeps me guessing! I was absolutely absorbed in the story. The writing was simple and suspenseful. This was a very quick read, I pretty much read it in one sitting.
Overall, I loved this book. It was great, and I’m kicking myself for waiting so long to have read it. I was beyond thrilled to find out it is going to be a series. I can’t wait to read Perception!
