How: For Review
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
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?
Funny, clever, and entertaining, Clarity is a fabulous debut that includes a fiery and honest heroine, hot boys, and a murder mystery that left me guessing! Kim is an author to watch!
Clarity "Clare" Fern was a fun, quirky, and snarky character. I loved reading about her, mostly because her reactions seemed so genuine. I especially loved the first time she sees Gabriel, mostly because she goes, out loud to her friend and brother, "Yummy." YES. THANK YOU! Mostly because I would've done the same thing, not cower into the seats and mentally think about the hot god he is. She's strong and willing to go to great lengths for family, even to the people she's supposed to be telling the truth too. I loved her sense her loyalty and also her confidence, because I just don't think enough heroines are like that these days!
Clarity revolves around a murder that happens in their small town, and Clare teaming up with her ex-boyfriend Justin and new hot junior detective, Gabriel, to find the killer. I, personally, never suspected the killer to be who it was. I thought lots of different people, whenever Clarity's opinion swayed, so did mine.
Finally, the boys. Honestly, I'm a little bit in favor of both. I just don't think the book was long enough to allow enough character development for a decision! Justin was sweet and nice, even if he made that one mistake. On the other hand, Gabriel was hot, lovely, and they had fantastic chemistry together! I'm rooting for her and Gabriel, but with some little time reading about them, my preference just might sway!
My rating? AMAZINGNESS
