Title: NEED               Author: Carrie Jones          Publisher: Bloomsbury          Number Of Pages: 306


Summary From back of book: Pain shoots through my head. Fireworks. Explosions. All inside my brain. The white world goes dark and I know what’s about to happen.

Zara White suspects there’s a freaky guy semi-stalking her. She’s also obsessed with phobias. And it’s true, she hasn’t exactly been herself since her stepfather died. But exiling her to shivery Maine to live with her grandmother? That seems a bit extreme. The move is supposed to help her stay sane…but Zara’s pretty sure her mom just can’t deal with her right now.

She couldn’t be more wrong. Turns out the semi-stalker is not a figment of Zara’s overactive imagination. In fact, he’s still following her, leaving behind an eerie trail of gold dust. There’s something not right-not human-in this sleepy Maine town, and all signs point to Zara.

In this creepy, compelling breakout novel, Carrie Jones delivers romance, suspense, and a creature you never thought you had to fear.


Review: Carrie truly wrote a fantastic book! I have read so many reviews saying how terrible this book is, but I don’t see it, I really loved it! The characters are complex and interesting, which I like complex characters. I usually love pixies and fairies and all little winged people but this book made me think of pixies in a new way. (In a creepy, terrifying way!) All in all this is a fantastic novel and I can’t wait for the sequel!


I recommend this book if you like fantasy/paranormal novels, Carrie Jones, romance, and YA novels.
