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 absolutely adored this book! It had me on my toes the whole time! I was biting my nails and flipping pages frantically i got a couple paper cuts! I seriously had no idea who was on the killing spree! Kim weaves the story so fantastically i thought everyone was a suspect! Obviously my detective skills need a little work... 

& speaking of detectives, we get introduced to the Detective's son Gabriel, and oh my goodness he is soo attractively sexy and mysterious & all rough around the edges!*swoons* But there's also Clare’s ex-boyfriend, Justin, and he is funny & cute too! How am I supposed to pick?! How is Clarity suppose to pick!?!

Then the family aspect of this book is also amazing! Clare's brother Perry & mom are both such strong characters & i love, love, loved them! They are absolutely adorable!! Clare’s mom has the ability to read minds, while Perry can summon and talk to the dead! Awesome right!? but wouldn’t that totally suck if your mom could read your thoughts?! *shudders*

Now for my favsie- Clarity! Best thing about this book by far, is the main character! OhMG!! She is my new all-time favorite heroine! Ever! What i like most about her is she acts from her heart so all her decisions seem like the right ones! Family comes first to her and she would do anything to protect her loved ones! She comes across so strong, but she's just trying to protect herself from getting hurt too. And that means she doesn’t take crap from anyone! I mean look at her on that cover, does she not just scream BADASS!?!! She is so snarky and sarcastic and witty & cute (she has Diet Coke and powdered donuts for breakfast, plain awesome!) I canNOT wait to read more from Clare’s POV in the sequel, PERCEPTION, coming out next year!

Best lines ever: "I pray every night that you'll fall victim to some strange and unusual castration accident."

"Listen, i gather that you have a problem working with a psychic. Believe me, i don't like working with a jackass any better." 


  1. Clarity is fantastic book! I adored her as a narrator due to her sarcastic explanations and snarky comebacks. She had me laugh out loud on many occasions.

  2. Same! I cracked my a$$ up!! One of my favs of 2011 so far!!

  3. Stop stop! No more reviews of good books. I can't keep up! My TO READ pile is already knee-high.

  4. hahahah god yeah i LOVED that second line! andddd JUSTIN <3
