REVIEW: Need by Carrie Jones

Title: Need
Author: Carrie Jones
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Pages: 336
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 supposted 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, her's still following her, leaving behand an eerie trail of gold dust. There's something not right – not human – in this sleepy Maine town, and all signs point to Zara. 

"An exciting venture filled with nasty evil creatures, nail-biting action and heart-pounding romance." --teenreads.com

“Romance, suspense, and a very clever heroine make this a must-read!”  -- Toledo Blade

"It's not hard to see Twilight in the DNA of this novel. ...Genre fans will enjoy the sizzle between Nick and Zara as well as the paranormal cast." –PW

It was the cover of this book that drew me to it. The pale skin and shiny mouth really catches your eye. 

Zara White is sent to live with her grandmother after her stepfather passes away. She hasn’t been herself lately and people are starting to worry about her. Her mother decides to send her to live with her grandmother in Maine in the hopes that such a change might serve as a pick me up. 

Zara doesn’t realize that there are other reasons behind the move as well.

Her grandmother sends her to school the very next day after her arrival since she feels like getting Zara in a normal routine is the best way to help her out of her depression. Once there, she meets the guys usually found in school. There is the Drama Queen, Megan, her new best friend, Issy, and the hotties fighting for her attention, Nick and Ian.

This book definitely has it's Twilight moments, but I found the twists refreshing. No there are no vampire's in this book, but I would still  recommend it to any Twilight fans. I found Need, to be edgy, fast paced, and hard to put down. I've already got book 2 on the way and I can't wait for it to get here. 

4 out of 5 hearts.
