Need by Joelle Charbonneau
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
There is a new social networking site that is only for students at Nottawa High School. It is by invitation only and includes some added benefits. Teens can tell the website a “need” and they will be given a task. When the task is completed, their need is met. The tasks seem trivial … until they are not. As the pranks turn into crimes and people begin to die, will anyone step up and question who is behind this website? Are there any lines these students won’t cross to have their needs met?
Need is a new young adult thriller that will keep readers turning page after page. The alternating voices of the different students give the reader insight into the thoughts of the victims and the perpetrators. The entire story takes place within a very brief time period and I found myself wanting to complete the book quickly too. Readers who pick up this book because they loved Charbonneau’s the Testing trilogy will not be disappointed with this social media gone wrong story.
