Perception review

Description: 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: 
This series continues to be (just about) the only one I'm excited about that involves people who can talk to ghost/do other Miss Chloe related things. I normally try to avoid them, especially because they often include a dead loved one who can't move on, but neither Perception nor the first book Clarity is anything like that.

This time around, the stakes have been raised with Clare's love life, and the new killer has 
different targets, which still affect Clare personally (even more than last time). While I will 
admit that there was something about the plot in Clarity that was more appealing than the 
second time around, there was enough excitement to keep me interested in what would happen
in the second book. I was especially interested in the killer, because it appeared that Clare might 
be a future target.
Of course the mystery is solved by the end of the book, but what was really exciting was that
Clare finally chose a guy. I can't wait for the backlash/consequences of her choice in the next
book (I hope there’s a third one)! Plus, I'm excited for whatever new problem the author creates 
for Clare to solve... I also wonder if she'll end up solving crimes for a living after she graduates 
from school (although the series might not go that far.)
