Zara is a heroin like no other. She memorizes and chants phobias (which I find quite interesting), is a clever girl, and yes, she sure has the guts. She doesn't seem to enjoy living in Maine because of the cold weather, but she enjoyed her grandmother's company. Her grams is a nice, kind, warm old woman who is quite protective of her granddaughter and I really like her character. Her humorous tone makes me smile sometimes. I also love that this 60-year-old lady actually works as a paramedic!
Zara's best friends Issie and Devyn are always there to help her. But the popular girl, Megan seems to loathe her. And the two boys - Ian and Nick, are always competing for her attention. Whom can she trust and confide in? Is it the always-smiling, helpful Ian, or the handsome, protective Nick?
In this exciting novel, Carrie Jones brings us to a realm where diabolical pixies with sharp teeth and unquenchable needs exist. Full of suspense, danger, surprises, and a suitable amount of romance, I'm sure NEED will capture the hearts of teenagers who have a liking for paranormal fantasy. I highly recommend NEED to all Twilight fans.
