REVIEW: A Need So Beautiful by Suzanne Young

A Need So Beautiful (A Need So Beautiful, #1)
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?

Charlotte is one of the forgotten.
A kind of angel that this "Need" to help people.
Whether it's someone whose about to commit suicide or someone whose guilty of a crime.
Charlotte's job is to get them do the right thing.
Cool right?
But it's not that easy.
Eventually you will start to fade.
At first people will only forget things like something you said or a memory about you from years ago.
Until no one even remembers you.
Not your friends, family, anyone.
You will cease to have ever existed.
It's easy to see why Charlotte doesn't want this to happen.

I really did like the idea behind this book!
It was such a new an original concept on angels!
So why did I only give this book 2 stars?
Well... Charlotte had a boyfriend.
It was one of those relationships where they were like "we are going to be together forever!"

I'm sorry ,children, but you do realize that YOU'RE STILL IN HIGHSCHOOL!!!
It's relationships like this that always make me wanna yell "IT ISN'T GONNA LAST!!"
Thankfully, this was a cute/sappy/annoying relationship unlike those creepy/stalker/pedophile relationships that are oh so popular in YA fiction.
So thumbs up for them!

I hereby give this book:
2.5 Wheels
Meaning: It was okay, but I didn't enjoy it as much as I wanted to.
