Jaime's Review of Perception by Kim Harrington

From Goodreads.
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 loved Clarity it was a fun who done it with paranormal thrown in and, I adored Clare and the other characters. So when Perception showed up on my door step I first closed my door and proceeded to do a major happy dance. Kim’s writing is so easy to get into I read Clarity in one sitting and I did the same with Perception! I liked it better than Clarity!

What I loved about this book was Clare had to figure out her feelings for Gabriel and Justin and normally I’m not that big of a love triangle fan but I felt the progression in her relationships with both of the boys was very believable. I had my fingers crossed for Gabriel the whole time I mean he’s tall dark and sexy for pete’s sake plus her really cares about Clare in a way I don’t think Justin ever did.

I also loved that there was another mystery for Clare to solve actually there was two but I don’t want to get too spoilery so let’s just say I had an idea what was going to happen in this one but the story kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end! Speaking of the end I cried (yeah I know big surprise right?) but it was an awesome ending and wrapped the story up nicely. The only problem I had with that was I started thinking O_o is this the end are there no more books? Because I need more!!!! I need more of this world!!!!!! Please Scholastic and Kim tell me there’s more!!!!

I chose a passage from the beginning of the book because I was laughing so hard at this image in my head.

Tiffany was a drama queen , so loud squeals and other attention-getting techniques weren’t unusual for her. But this wasn’t a playful scream. This was an open your closet door to find Freddy Krueger, Jason, and Michael Meyers hiding in there scream.

Kendra started screaming, too, while waving her hands in the air in some crazed dance of ick.

I, along with everyone else in the hall, first froze, then rushed over to see what had kicked off this performance. On the floor by Tiffany’s locker was a little red box, like what you’d get with the purchase of some cheap jewelry. It was flipped over and no contents could be seen. Tiffany had one hand over her mouth and was pointing repeatedly at the fallen box with her other.

I reached down and turned it over.

Want to know what was in the box and the reason for Kendra’s ick dance? Pre-order the book! It comes out March 1st!

Add Perception to your Goodreads shelves.

Thanks to Scholastic for the Advanced Readers Copy for review!


  1. Ugh, I still haven't gotten around to reading Clarity yet! It's sitting in a big pile on my nightstand, but I just never quite seem to make it there. After this review, though, I think I just might go snatch it up. I need more amazing in my life, and I always hear such great things about it.
