Summary: After the death of her step-father, a bereft Zara moves to a small town in Maine to live with her grandmother. Zara's life changes dramatically, her new friends are not what they seem to be, she is being stalked by the supernatural, and she uncovers a family secret tied to the disappearance of young men in the area.
Review: A young adult novel with Twilight commonalities, Need is a fast and fun read. The author, Carrie Jones, creates extremely likable characters and a great romance between our heroine and her hero. My only concern was the action packed ending, where I found myself confused over how the plan was implemented. I just chalked it up to my lack of knowledge in regards to railroad materials. Overall, a paranormal young adult novel that I recommend reading. Rating: ***1/2 out of 5.
