I run a blog with my best friend, Em - we love Young Adult literature.

A Need So Beautiful - Suzanne Young A Need So Beautiful is the story of Charlotte, a seemingly normal 17 year old girl, who has these "needs" to help people that she doesn't know. And while it helps the person, it is physically killing her at the same time. This is the story of how she changes people's lives and how she tries to figure out how to try and stop from fading away.

I'm so torn on this book. Anna from Literary Exploration always harps on me for listening to audiobooks and for once, I wish that I had read this book instead of listening to it on audio. I really really liked the concept of the book - it was really unique. I always thought that angels would want to help people and the repercussions of NOT helping them..well I never really put much thought into it. But because I listened to this on audiobook, I found myself thoroughly annoyed at the characters. Charlotte, Harlin, and especially Sarah were SO whiny. I realize that they're 16-17 years old and that means that they are selfish, spoiled, self-centered, whiny, annoying, immature..but the narrator did TOO good of a job at this part and it made me dislike almost all of the characters. The only character I really liked was Monroe!

I would recommend that fans of Paranormal Romance or people who have an affinity for books with angels in them but definitely pick up the book and not the audio!
