Today I have the fabulous Suzanne Young on the blog! Suzanne is an author I know personally so I’m super excited to have her on for My Favorite Things! A Need So Beautiful was a gorgeous story that breaks the mold for YA. It has unique characters, unique story line and a unique relationship. And it’s all brilliant! You can check out my rave review HERE. A Need So Beautiful releases June 21st and I already have my copy on preorder. At the end of this post you’ll get your own chance to win a signed copy! But let’s get to it, shall we?
This is Avonlea (from The Eager Readers), myself and Suzanne at a booksigning (not sure which one, we’ve gone to a lot!). I thought I had a better picture but I’m not finding it 🙁

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.
I’m giving away one ARC of A Need So Beautiful and it’s *signed* and I’ll even get it personalized for you!
