Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This week's pick is Perception by Kim Harrington, the follow up to her 2010 debut Clarity, coming March 2012 from Scholastic.

Summary: 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: I loved Clarity, from the characters to the story to the writing, and was absolutely thrilled to hear there would be more. Not because Kim left it in a place that you have to have more, but because she will make you love her characters and world so much you just want more. I really like the premise of this one too, that it focuses more on Clare whereas Clarity had a big element with her brother. I want to know who's sending the messages, what they say, how they morph into something more sinister... and I want to know the circumstances of the girl's disappearance and of course the truth. Also, I might be hoping for some more hot boys because I admit it, Justin and Gabriel are pretty swoonworthy. Then there's the cover, which has the same surreal yet realistic element as the Clarity cover, is gorgeous and breathtaking and enticing, and will look so pretty on my shelf next to Clarity. So now I just need to find a way to get this book sooner rather than later....
