Review: A Need So Beautiful

A Need So BeautifulA Need So Beautiful by Suzanne Young

Hardcover, 252 pages
Expected publication: June 21st 2011
by Balzer & Bray

Suzanne Young brings us into the world of the Forgotten where Angels are on Earth to bring peace and carry a heavy burden.
Charlotte is the main character of the story. Found walking the halls of a clinic at the age of six, Charlotte is adopted by Mercy a foster parent and cycles through siblings while she is carrying on a relationship.
I loved the book, but disliked the boyfriend.
The story itself and the significance that is carried for Charlotte was amazing to read and took me to tears.
Full review coming later.

Goodreads Blurb:
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.

There have been others before who’ve felt the Need, but they’re gone—erased from the memories of everyone whose lives they had touched. It's as though they never existed. This is the fate that awaits Charlotte. But the last thing Charlotte wants to do is disappear, to be Forgotten. She wants to stay with her best friend, whose life is spiraling out of control. She wants to lie in her boyfriend’s arms forever. She wishes she could just ignore the Need, but she can’t. And as everyone important in her life begins to slowly forget her, she has to decide if she’ll fight the Need in order to remain herself—no matter how dark the consequences.
