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?

First Thoughts: I have heard many good things about this book so I decided to check it out from the library.  Cover: I think the cover is stunning. It looks like a portrait and a photo, very nice!  

Setting: The setting is in Eastport. I have never been there, but it sounds like a quiet place, but with murders. Interesting.

Characters: Charity is an awesome main character, I really love her voice and her telling of her story. Justin is awesome, I love him so much! He's sweet and would help Charity no matter what and it wasn't his fault that he cheated on her, he was drunk! Gabriel... eh... I don't really know anything about him. All I know is that Clarity feel attachment to him and that's he's hot and the detective's son. That all I know about him, I don't really like him that much.  

Plot: The plot is pretty cool, a little mystery that us readers is solving along. Amazing plot with abnormal people like Charity and her family.   

Recommends: People who would like a good mystery to solve ;)

Rate:  ★ 4/5 Stars
