Clarity is a teenager who lives on Cape Cod, where her family runs a psychic readings business out of the Victorian home where they live. Clarity is psychic (she can sense impressions from touching objects); her brother is a medium; and her mother is a telepath.
When a dead body turns up in a local motel, and her brother is suspected of involvement in the crime, Clarity agrees to work with the police (in the form of the new detective's attractive but irritatingly skeptical son) as well as her cheating ex-boyfriend in order to prove her brother's innocence.
I enjoyed this one - it is a fast-paced mystery with characters who had surprising depth, and while the mystery wasn't terribly complex, the characters and their personal lives were compelling enough that it was all good. This one should be an easy sell to the teens at my library, and my 12-year-old daughter enjoyed it immensely.
