So I have this little book I read a couple months ago called A Need So Beautiful. (Out June 21st, 2011)
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?
Perhaps you’ve heard of it? It’s by the lovely Suzanne Young who happens to be a wonderful local author to me and someone who I’ve had the pleasure of spending some time with. When I heard of A Need so Beautiful last year I was immediately excited and told Suzanne she was going to be a super famous author one day soon because of the ideas she was throwing out there and the excitement she had for these books she was working on. Well, she’s definitely getting there because she just sold another series of books! Here’s what she posted:
THE PROGRAM, in which teen suicide is an epidemic and a girl struggles to stay out of the Program – a preventative treatment that will erase her memories – in order to save herself and the boyfriend who’s already forgotten her.
It’s to be published by Simon Pulse/ Simon & Schuster in Spring 2013. Yes, a VERY long ways off! I know I’ll be very impatient.
In the meantime I’ll have to be happy with A Need So Beautiful, which I loved, and A Want So Wicked (Book 2 ) which I cannot WAIT to get my hands on, but still have a long wait until next spring.
So I figured I’d share the amazing trailer for A Need So Beautiful. If you haven’t yet read the book (out June 21st, 2011) then hopefully this will convince you to preorder it SOON!
