What’s the first thing you notice about Kim Harrington’s novel Clarity?
If you’re me, it’s that bokeh. Little circles of light — so interesting, so delicate . . . I love it. And that cover.
And what I’m here to offer today — after a busy, busy weekend — are two copies of Harrington’s debut young adult novel!
What’s it about?
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?
I’m halfway through this one now and really enjoying it. Different and imaginative, it’s not a genre I’d usually consider . . . but as I said, I’m powerless against the pull of bokeh. It’s very suspenseful and well-drawn, and I can honestly say that — at page 165 — I have no idea where this is going . . . or how the mysteries will be solved.
