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.
I wanted the perfect ‘beach novel’ to read on my vacation last week and I was fortunate to pick Perception. Perception is the next novel in the continuing adventures of Clare who lives in the small beach town of Eastport, MA on Cape Cod. Clare and her family each possess psychic abilities which they use to make an honest living during the summer season. With the onset of autumn, business is falling off with the tourists’ departure. However, just because business isn’t booming, doesn’t mean that Clare and her family are left bored. Clare acquired a new admirer and a mystery related to the disappearance of a very musically talented teen that had just started attending Clare’s high school. The book was a great escape to enjoy in an Adirondack chair on the front porch of my hotel.
