Clare whose entire family is psychic: Clare touches objects and can read their history, her brother is a medium, and her mother is a mind reader. Her family is recovering from a summer of turmoil after a girl was killed and her brother was the prime suspect. And now that school is back in session, another girl has gone missing. And this time, Clare is receiving messages from a secret admirer.
So of course, Clare begins playing detective to figure out A) the circumstances around the girl's disappearance and B) the secret admirer's identity. Is it her ex-boyfriend, the new guy she likes, or someone new?

I love Kim Harrington's writing, it is captivating and alluring. I cannot stop reading her books!
