Review: A Need So Beautiful by Suzanne Young

June 21, 2011

From Goodreads:
We all want to be remembered. Charlotte’s destiny is to be Forgotten…

Charlotte’s best friend thinks Charlotte might be psychic. Her boyfriend thinks she’s cheating on him. But Charlotte knows what’s really wrong: She is one of the Forgotten, a kind of angel on earth, who feels the Need—a powerful, uncontrollable draw to help someone, usually a stranger.

But Charlotte never wanted this responsibility. What she wants is to help her best friend, whose life is spiraling out of control. She wants to lie in her boyfriend’s arms forever. But as the Need grows stronger, it begins to take a dangerous toll on Charlotte. And who she was, is, and will become–her mark on this earth, her very existence–is in jeopardy of disappearing completely.

Charlotte will be forced to choose: Should she embrace her fate as a Forgotten, a fate that promises to rip her from the lives of those she loves forever? Or is she willing to fight against her destiny–no matter how dark the consequences.

My Review:
Wow. Just wow. A Need So Beautiful is an unbelievably genuine story full of love, loss, and hope. I couldn’t put it down and read it in less than a day! I fell in love with the unique storyline and the delightful characters! I don’t know how I am going to be able to wait a whole year for the A Want So Wicked! I need more of this story, and I need to know what happens after that ending!!

Charlotte is a beautiful protagonist, inside and out. I was rooting for her the whole time. I was shocked at what she feels when the Need comes on, and I felt her pain at having to lie to her boyfriend, her best friend, and her family about the Need. Even though the Need put Charlotte through so much emotional and physical pain, it is an amazing thing. When Charlotte helps others who are in dire need of guidance, it is heartwarming and beautiful. It truly is a Need so beautiful.

Harlin…Oh, how to describe this wonderfully amazing man. I truly wish there was someone like Harlin out there. He is such a compassionate boyfriend to Charlotte, and even when he doesn’t understand why she acts the way she does, he is still there for her. He is sweet, charming, and utterly gorgeous! Definitely one of my favorite guys of YA.

If you haven’t read this book, you are sure missing out on a breathtaking story. I would highly recommend this story to everyone out there! You will laugh, cry, gasp, and swoon throughout all of the trials that Charlotte goes through.

    I SO agree! I LOVED this book! One thing I really loved was that they already had a developed relationship. We didn't have to see the ups and downs so much. So glad you loved it!
