Clarity by Kim Harrington
In Eastport, a tourist town on Cape Cod, lives a family of freaks. My family. I'm a psychic. My brother's a medium. My mother's a telepath. Tourists love us. Townies scorn us. We live in a grand Victorian house with no permanent ghosts, and we use the first floor for our family business readings. Not the bookstore kind.
Set in present day Cape Cod, Clarity is the story of Clarity "Clare" Fern, a gorgeous high school sophomore with psychic powers during the summer that a murder changes the town. Murder in a vacation town during the summer season might just scare away the tourists - bad enough for local businesses not to recover. While the Mayor and the Chief of Police are working double time to catch the killer, the Mayor's son (a.k.a. Clare's ex-boyfriend) is willing to take unusual measures to solve the case. He's put together a task force of sorts and has asked Clare to work with the Gabriel, a high school senior and the dreamy Chief of Police's son, to try to find leads.
Clare isn't all that excited to work on the case. Particularly when Gabriel shows his disdain for her skills. But the investigation takes a turn and Clare must hunt down the killer to save someone she loves.
Clarity combines humor, mystery, and romance - and introduces us to Kim Harrington, a fresh and fun voice in YA fiction.
