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?
 Fast paced and a quick read!

Clarity had me mesmerized. I particularly liked this book, because of its uniquesness. Unlike most books, the Fern family doesn't hide the fact that they had "super powers". It was quite refreshing from reading all those books where the main character tries hard to  hide their supernatural selves. And instead of spending time trying to not be herself, Claire finds herself in the middle of a murder investigatoin. Using her powers to help uncover the murdererer.

Claire Fern was a very well developed character. On the exterior she seems like a tough psychic chick and a  member of the freak family. But behind all of that, where others fail to look, there is a normal girl. A girl who doesn't was to always be on the defense and wants what everone else wants.  Clarity not only had me on my toes from the suspence, but it made me laugh. Claire had a great sence of humor I really enjoted reading the book even morebecaus eof this.

The only complaint I might have about the book, is that it was too short! I needed to know more.
But overall, it was a fantastic read! Fans of The Body Finder are sure to enjoy this book as well.
