Books (Young Adult):
  • Clarity (March 2011)


Kim Harrington:
Kim Harrington lives in Massachusetts with her husband and son. When not writing, she's most likely reading, watching one of her favorite TV shows, or fantasizing about her next vacation. She has no psychic powers and is cool with that. Her debut young adult novel, Clarity, came out on March 1, 2011 from Scholastic.

Clarity "Clare" Fern sees things. Things no one else can see. Things like stolen kisses and long-buried secrets. All she has to do is touch an object and the visions come to her. It's a gift.

And a curse.

When a teenage girl is found murdered, Clare's ex-boyfriend wants her to help solve the case — but Clare is still furious at the cheating jerk. Then Clare's brother — who has supernatural gifts of his own — becomes the prime suspect, and Clare can no longer look away. Teaming up with Gabriel, the smoldering son of the new detective, Clare must venture into the depths of fear, revenge, and lust in order to track the killer. But will her sight fail her just when she needs it most?

Did you have any input on the cover for Clarity?
I didn’t, but I love what they came up with. When I opened the email that had the cover in it, I actually gasped. It’s so bright and beautiful!

If you were to have a special ability, what would it be?
I would love to be able to manipulate time. Fast forward during boring things like long plane rides. Pause time when I need a minute. Rewind if I want to experience something again.

Do you have any of the same characteristics as Clare?
I have a sarcastic sense of humor like Clare does. And we both love our families fiercely.

Team Justin or Team Gabriel?
I’m definitely on a team, but I can’t tell you which one. Not without a heavy bribe anyway. ;)

What's next for your writing career?
Up next is PERCEPTION, the sequel to CLARITY, coming in March 2012. And then in fall 2012 I have a standalone supernatural mystery coming out, but it doesn’t have an official title yet. I’m very excited about both!
