Clarity by Kim Harrington
Goodreads – YA – March 2011 by Scholastic Point
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 an 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?
I really can’t quite pinpoint why I am attracted to this book. I think it might be the rather tragic feeling I am getting from it – what with “depths of fear, revenge and lust” on the menu and the rather intense cover. Honestly, that stare and the “She can see your secrets” tagline has me so creeped out I’m in love (and wow, does that sound weird).
