Goodreads Synopsis: 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 Review:
Perception by Kim Harrington is a quick, witty, sacrastic, suspenseful, edge-of-your-seat type of book. Everything about this book was amazing. I was laughing for a moment then the next page I was being super-paranoid about stalkers and obsessions. Yup, this book has it all and is on the top of my list for 2012 releases! :)
Everything for Clare "Clarity" Fern is one the line. Her growing attraction to Gabriel, who's more than a friend, Justin; the guy that wants her back, her sanity, everything, As she starts getting messages, packages that play with her mind and heart.
But everything changes when a girl goes missing, Sierra Waldman and the town baffled. Clare decided to use her powers for the good and helps undercover what happened to Sierra with the help of Gabriel, Justin, and Mallory her new friend. Mallory for me was really nice at times but yet creeping as if she was watching Clare and was playing with her. She really creeped me out! *Goes inside a blanket* But she really susprised me in the end!
The ending was jaw-dropping, especially with the idea of a stalker following you without you ever figuring it out!! I just loved the ending! And this book really gave me the chills and paranoia of stalkers...just saying! lol
This book really changed my perspective on stalkers. They are real and they do kill people over a deep obsession. They can take pcitures of you, take small things you don't even notice. Its insane and things like that really happen! I read Lauria Faria Stolarz's Toouch novels and they are really creepy! I loved Perception and would totally read it again! :D

And yes I agree with the frog...
