What is the difference between want and need?  That’s only the first question in this exciting psychological thriller for young adults.  Teenagers in a midwest high school receive invitations to a special website called “Need”.  Students place their request for a “need”,  complete some inconsequential action as directed and their “need” is fulfilled.  But how inconsequential are these little acts? Very quickly, things escalate beyond their control and teenagers start dying.

Kaylee knows that it’s too good to be true but she can’t help but ask for what she needs.  Can Kaylee find a way out and save others along the way?  Or is it too late?  Will her need be met?

This is a psychological thriller, a mystery, and something you need to read.  Joelle Charbonneau also wrote The Testing series, which I highly recommend.

Recommended: Grades 7 & up
