When you can see things others can't, what do you do when someone's watching you? 
Everybody knows about Clarity "Clare" Fern. She's the psychic girl in school, the one who can place her hands on something and see hidden visions from the past. 
Only Clare would rather not be a celebrity. She prefers hanging back, observing. Her gift is not a game to her. 
But then someone starts playing with her head . . . and heart. Messages and gifts from a secret admirer crop up everywhere Clare turns. Could they be from Gabriel, the gorgeous boy who gets Clare's pulse racing? Or from Justin, Clare's hopeful ex-boyfriend who'd do anything to win her back? 
One thing is certain. Clare needs to solve this mystery, and soon. Because the messages are becoming sinister, and a girl in town has suddenly disappeared.
My Thoughts:
 In Clarity, I instantly fell for the characters in the book and found myself addicted to the mystery and intrigue that can be found within Harrington’s writing. I was so excited when I got the chance to immerse myself in her writing, in Perception.

Perception starts off pretty much where Clarity ended and follows a new set of events. The first chapter was short and extremely enticing because it was an exciting little glimpse at what was to come. Another factor that made this book so addictive was the fact that every chapter pretty much has a cliff hanger of some sort and it made the book so entertaining as it meant that there were many suspenseful events that could keep any reader entertained.

Clarity is an interesting character that has developed from the first book in the series—to me that is. I feel like the whole cast of characters is just as fun to read about as they were initially and even more so due to the new circumstances they find themselves in.

Kim Harrington’s writing is simple, effective and addictive. Simple as that. No matter what I believe that her books will always be addictive due to the fact that she is able to weave mystery into her stories that will keep you guessing—I often found that I was guessing who did what and trying to figure out who was suspicious and who wasn’t and I turned out to be wrong sometimes and others, I had been wrong.

Throughout this book, I was on the edge of my seat and wanted more! So am eagerly anticipating Kim Harrington’s next book and hopefully it will be filled with just as much intrigue, mystery and suspense as Clarity and Perception have been!
