Overview

Zara collects phobias the way other girls collect Facebook friends. Little wonder, since life’s been pretty rough so far. Her father left, her stepfather just died, and her mother’s pretty much checked out. Now Zara’s living with her grandmother in sleepy, cold Maine so that she stays “safe.” Zara doesn’t think she’s in danger; she thinks her mother can’t deal.

Wrong. Turns out that guy she sees everywhere, the one leaving trails of gold glitter, isn’t a figment of her imagination. He’s a pixie—and not the cute, lovable kind with wings. He’s the kind who has dreadful, uncontrollable needs. And he’s trailing Zara.

With suspense, romance, and paranormal themes, this exciting breakout novel has readers rapidly turning the pages.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

It's not hard to see Twilight in the DNA of this novel: Zara's stepfather has died, her mother isn't capable of caring for her, and she has been sent to live with her grandmother in a small remote town in Maine. When her car spins out of control (Calling Stephenie Meyer!), she's rescued by sexy Nick (who turns out to be a werewolf), and something might be cooking with her overachieving classmate Ian. Too bad she's being followed by someone dark and dangerous-a pixie king. This pixie is no harmless sprite: "when not mated with a queen for an unspecified amount of time," Zara learns, "the pixie kings will demand... young human men, who they kill after using them for their blood-hungry pleasures." Will Zara sacrifice herself to this vampire stand-in or let him destroy everything she loves? Jones (Love {and Other Uses for Duct Tape]) easily wins readers to Zara's side, portraying her as a funny, globally conscious teen who also "collect[s} fears like other people collect stamps" (obscure phobias serve as chapter titles). Genre fans will enjoy the sizzle between Nick and Zara as well as the paranormal cast. Ages 12-up. (Jan.)

VOYA - Ashley Brown
A fast-paced novel worthy of the fantasy greats, Need will take you for a ride. The setting was a little strange at first, but being out in the middle of nowhere allowed the story to take on a more fantastical plot while seeming possible at the same time. Zara and Nick's relationship is one to which the reader can relate, and although the book is at certain times predictable, Jones goes about it in such a way that will provide a laugh. Reviewer: Ashley Brown, Teen Reviewer
VOYA - Alissa Lauzon
When Zara shuts down after the sudden death of her stepfather, her mother sends Zara to live in Bedford, Maine, with his mother. Zara finds that she is not only unaccustomed to the cold temperature and ice but also not used to life in a small town where everyone knows everyone else's story. As Zara begins to make friends, she discovers that many unusual things have been happening lately, from strange accidents, boys going missing, and gold glitter on the ground to a tall, pale guy who seems to be following her. Things in Bedford are actually a whole lot more strange and far creepier than Zara could ever have imagined. The woods around Bedford are populated by pixies and the King-without a queen-is no longer able to control his powerful need or his subjects. Jones masterfully blends paranormal fantasy, suspense, and romance to craft a new supernatural tale that is certain to appeal to fans of dark urban fantasy like Marr's Wicked Lovely (HarperTeen, 2007/VOYA June 2007) and paranormal romances like Meyer's Twilight books. A likeable cast of engaging and interesting characters combines with a plot that grabs readers and refuses to let go. At times slightly predictable, there are enough surprises to keep readers guessing and a creepiness factor that will keep them on the edges of their seats. This book is an essential purchase for any library whose teens devour the supernatural and a must-read for any young reader who is ready to move beyond faeries and vampires. Reviewer: Alissa Lauzon
School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up—Move over Edward Cullen (Twilight)—there's a new boy in town. Carrie Jones's terrific fantasy/romance/thriller (Bloomsbury, 2008) is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Zara White flies to Maine to live with her grandmother after her stepfather dies in her arms. At the airport, she notices a mysterious man pointing at the plane and—it seems—at her. Could this be the same man she has seen around her South Carolina hometown? When he shows up in tiny Bedford, things turn really creepy. Zara begins to realize that the townspeople are hiding monumental secrets: young boys are disappearing and nobody—not the head cheerleader, the star athlete, or even Zara's grandmother—are who they claim to be. Zara joins forces with new friends Issie, Devyn, and the mysterious Nick, and romance blooms as they race to outwit Zara's stalker. Narrator Julia Whelan deftly captures Zara's youthful Southern twang and the harder-edged Northeastern accents of the other characters. This is a taut, satisfying thriller. Don't be put off by the provocative cover—the writing is gentle enough for younger teens. A sequel, Captivate, is planned for early 2010.—Tricia Melgaard, Centennial Middle School, Broken Arrow, OK
Kirkus Reviews
Leaving behind her warmly quirky realism to jump on the supernatural-romance bandwagon, Jones leans too hard on overly recognizable motifs. Zara's mother sends her to a remote, frigid Maine town to regain her spirit after her father dies. Boys immediately adore her, but only one electrifies her in return: Nick, an inhumanly fast runner. Polite Ian's also inhumanly fast, but new friends Issie and Devyn seem to favor Nick, despite his faintly dangerous vibe. A strange man stalks Zara, and she admits that he's been lurking in her life since the day of her father's fatal heart attack. He's a pixie, needing a queen to enhance his power lest he kidnap boys to drink their blood. Several scenes seem illogically manipulated for plot tension; choppy continuity undermines readers' ability to distinguish awkward prose from Zara's valid grief. A sense of the derivative outweighs welcome flashes of wit and humor. This one's for readers already hooked on smug supernatural males and incurious heroines less informed than anyone around them. Twi-lite. (Fantasy. YA)

    Very Twilight-esque .. but badly.

    I read this with a recommendation from a few of my friends. It was, to put it lightly, okay. There were several situations where I found myself thinking I was reading a re-write of Twilight. For example, Zara, the main character, ends up being sent to a tiny, dreary little town in Maine to live with her grandmother after her step-father passes away. She remarks often that she misses the sun, the heat, etc. Gets a new car when she gets there, too. Then the typical awkward staring ensues, with random little friends popping in and the "all around good guy/bad boy" Nick presents a charm for all of about 5 seconds. I won't spoil the whole book, but needless to say it was too fast, often times the author would pull up Twilight highlights, and there were parts that made no sense. Overall, I would only recommend this to someone very bored and in desperate "need" of something to read.

    A Very Cute Read!

    Need was like a perfect combination of Stephenie Meyer's and Melissa Marr's writtings. Zara, the main character, is forced to go live with her grandmother up in a small town in Maine after her (step)father dies and her mother becomes worried about her sanity. A healthy mind though, is not the only worry her mother should have had for Zara as it becomes clear someone, or something, is after her. At least she has Nick, the amazingly cute boy who has a slight Heros Complex and seems to enjoy being Zara's personal hero. The closer Zara gets to Nick the more she becomes aware of the small towns little secrets. Along with her friends, some of which are a little more then human, Zara sets a trap to catch the "guy" who is after her. Full of suspence, romance, and easy to love characters, I don't see any teen girl not loving this book.

    TWILIGHT RIP OFF

    This book reads like something an over-obsessed 15 year old twilight fan wrote. I mean come on? Girl's mother sends her away, girl moves from south to cold northern town to live with a single relative, relative gives girl car, girl has boys who drool after her, girl gets strange boy to like her, boring non special girl gets special attention from random people, strange boy saves her from car incident. There are also sparkles.in the form of "pixie dust", I mean please, is she joking? I could point out like 30 other little things she ripped off of twilight. I've never seen two books that are so alike, I mean the writing is totally different, (it still sucks) but what are the odds? She even has this whole chapter about not being used to driving on ice and how people have chains on their tires. There is no way all of that is coincidence, and I am 110% convinced Jones went and read twilight or saw the movie then decided that Meyer had a good thing going. It's like Jones was just upset that none of her books sold like twilight so instead she decided to publish her own fan fiction RE-do, and threw in Pixies for a pinch of non-originality. (the pixies are really the frosting on the cake of this stupid excuse for a book) Jones will be pissed when girls don't scream and freak out over Nick Colt. ( last name beginning with C..like CULLEN) Overall the characters are lame and unrealistic, Zara is annoying as hell. She has a stalker but it's like she likes it because she gets to be the damsel in distress. (a bit like James chasing Bella) Nick is just some other non-special emo kid, who's supposed to be special like Edward, and him and (normal) Zara like each other the way 6th graders get crushes during study hall. This book was a TWILIGHT RIP OFF. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME. Honestly it's like Jones took twilight and went and changed names and swapped characters around and changed little bits and pieces so she'd have something that she thought would sell. Well, I got this book from the library, and I'm not buying it.

    Forget Twilight

    This book is nothing like Twilight. Stephanie Meyer was not the first person to come up with this type of plot line, or the idea of a girl choosing between 2 loves. And she certainly did NOT invent werewolves. This book is good all on its own. Don't compare it, just enjoy it.

    "Need"s Plot, "Need"s Emotion, "Need"s Help

    First of all, this book is an obvious Twilight rip off, which I absolutely hate getting suckered into buying. Read Twilight once thanks, don't need to read it again in the form of a shabby knock off, the original will suffice. Then there's the characters, who we all wish were whitty and original, but fall way short. I felt nothing for these characters or their romance. It was insanely predictable, leaving the reader angry at the subpar intellegence of the oblivious characters, who are careful not to trip over any of the major potholes in the story. I only read to the end to see if the swiss cheese plot would ever thicken, but alas I was yet again let down once i reached the stupid ending... I mean seriously stupid ending. It's aimed at ages 12+, yet I'm quite certain that even at 12 I would've been insulted to have such crap aimed at me.

    I got this book, not really knowing too well what it would be about. I read it in one day, it was GREAT! I was a little worried it would be too much like the twilight series with the whole "something she never thought she'd have to worry about", but it was unique, and just great! (:

    ...need

    Need by Carrie Jones is by no means a wannabe Twilight. Zara is scared of what she doesn't understand but is not a magnet for danger like Bella. She likes Nick but she not totally crazy in love with him like Bella is with Edward.
    It starts out a little slow but you learn so much about Zara and why she has been sent to Maine. Zara is slow to put things together...especially when it comes to Nick.
    I think this was a pretty good book. I have been looking for something so that I could get over my "need" of Twilight.

    you NEED to skip this book!

    Here's why you need to skip NEED ...absolutely mediocre story! So we find out that the fairy king (or whatever) is after Zara but the why is never really explained, because he needs a queen, so what, he can't rule his kingdom unless his 'needs' are being met by a mortal ... seriously ... are you kidding me!?! And it has come to my attention that this is supposed to be a series, my questions are "why?" and "really?" and "why??" Don't get me wrong, I really wanted to like this book, the cover looked cool, the first chapter was somewhat interesting, but the story does not need a sequel.

    NOT REALLY THAT GREAT!

    I basically only picked this book up at the library cuz I thought the cover was pretty(pitiful on my part I know LOL)This book could have been much more than what it is. It has a great plot and seems like the villian is cool but her writing style sucks. It just seems she jumped around too much and would go on and on about the cuteness of one character instead of building his character and other characters as well. We really don't know why most of the stuff happens,it just happens. I'd give it a C if I was grading it.

    Excited for Captivate

    This was not what I was expecting I must not have read the synopsis very well before I bought this book. I probably wouldnt have picked it up if I had know that it was about evil Pixies. I love supernatural books but Pixies just don't sound scary. I also ran into this problem when I read Rampant which is about venomous unicorns that kill people.no really that's what its about lol. Anyways, the moral of this story it that this book was good. I have learned to give some of these crazy plots a chance and so far I have been pleasantly surprised. The next book is out in 2 weeks "Captivate" I am excited to continue the story about Royal Pixies, Weres, and the war that is brewing...

    Dialogue was off, but still a good book

    This book was really good except for how the characters talked. I understand that this author is an adult, but she should have done some research on how teens speak because this dialogue was WAY off. But other then that I really enjoyed this book.
    Zara was an especially great character because she had experienced a ton of pain recently and that added a lot of depth to her personality. I would definitely recommend this book!

    I did not enjoy this book at all! I didn't even finish it. It was not interesting and quite confusing in some parts. It seemed like the author was trying to write her version of Twilight (even though there are no vampires), but failed miserably. I do not recommend this book to anyone.

    An Okay Read

    This story was okay. As I began to read this book it shared a lot of twilight characteristics. For example girl moving to small town. The story was too predictable for my taste, but kept me reading. Some of it sounded really not real, but it is a fantasy book afterall. The story is okay to read for fun, but the author was trying to make her version of Twilight. I like it if it was her own style. There was also a couple grammer mistakes.

    The one book you NEED to buy now

    In the cold, snowy world of Bedford, Maine, pixies are not small, fictional creatures a la Tinkerbell. They are tall. And real. And far more dangerous than you might imagine. When Zara White is sent to Maine to live with her grandmother for a while, in hopes it will help her get over the death of her stepfather, she quickly learns that things (or rather, people) aren't quite what they appear to be. Carrie Jones excels at writing some of the best boyfriends in Young Adult literature, and this book is no exception. In addition, her heroine is a smart, proactive character who is interesting not only for her quirks, but for her core characteristics. The "leads" are backed by a fascinating supporting cast, and the description of the pixies and what they're up to is outstandingly creeptastic. The backhanded paean to Maine's master of horror, Stephen King, is just extra frosting roses on an already excellent cake. Fans of TWILIGHT and WICKED LOVELY really need to buy NEED, by Carrie Jones.

    ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I HAVE EVER ERAD! FORGET TWILIGHT!!!!!

    A special thanks to Laurie Jane Kaye for realizing that you shouldn`t judge a book just because you think it`s like TWILIGHT. Stephanie Meyer didn`t create vampires or werewolves (thank God!). How many books do you think before Twilight had the same plot? ALOT!!! And of course there are going to be more books with the same plot!! She did create a really good series but NEED is an even better one! Oh by the way this book is NOTHING like twilight! So for all you Twilighters that think every book you read isn`t as good as Twilight or is exactly like it, you are probably wrong! Weather you like it or not!!!

    Jones has a NEED to be like Meyer

    The Twilight feel to this book is STRONG on a very bad note! It is so obvious that she is trying to write another Twilight. The plot is jumbled and the conversations between the characters are not well written at all. Jones, the whole small cold town, weird attarctive guys, sidekick friends, getting a car , werewolf/shifter, pixies who you say are like vampires have all been done before. Twiight fans will feel as if this is a smack in the face, and non Twilight fans will be bored through this story. I took a chance on this book and I found out that I didn't NEED to read it, and you don't either

    A Complete and Utter Twilight ripoff

    Okay. I really really liked Twilight, but the more and more it's rewritten and retold and over hyped the more I grow to dislike it. Need is a prime example. A girl moves to a new town in the middle of nowhere and thinks everybody is a little strange. Totally Twilight, totally overdone. A hot guy turns out to be a werewolf trying to protect her from some scary supernatural thing. Ooh, so original. Seriously, just because he's a pixie, not a vampire, does not make the story original. This book was recommended to me because I gave Twilight etc. a five star rating. Thank goodness I only checked it out from the library, because this book was a huge waste of my time, and completely predictable. Yeah, Twilight was really good, but rewriting the story only makes Twilight and Need seem even more stupid and overdone. Ms. Jones needs to try having her own original ideas, and I'm ashamed that teenagers are content to reread the same story over and over. Widen your horizons! All in all, the writing style was poor and boring, the characters are unoriginal, and the story was uninspiring. If it weren't for the fact that Twilight was such a huge cult phenomenon, I doubt this book would have even been published. And quite honestly, the cool cover art was the highlight of the novel.

    Must Read Before You Die

    Ever read one of those, 100 Things You Should Do Before You Die books? Well Need By Carrie Jones is on there!!! It's a Must Read!!! You'll regret not reading this paranormal/fantasy romance book. The author brings it all in 336 pages: Good Plot, Suspense, Emotion, fast paste and an amazing story. I found myself in love with all the characters, particularly Nick & Zara. They're such a good pair together, I mean they're so cute. I love how they're being so stubborn to admit the truth, it's adorable. I mean Grandma Betty is more open about there relationship then they are. I also enjoyed the character development in Zara (the protagonist). I enjoyed knowing that everyone kind of made her out to be a damsel in the distress at first but in the end she is able to stand on her own two feet. Also it's interesting the theory that she doesn't need to think big to save the world, it can be a small way. Am I making any sense???
    The best thing about Need other then the great story and cool characters, is the dialogue. It's priceless, and probably the best dialogue I've read in a long time. It's so funny and down to earth. What they said made me laugh and made me like this book even more. For example: "'Okay, just don't hurt Yoko.' 'Yoko?' 'My car.' 'You named your car Yoko? As in Ono?' 'You have a better name?' 'How about Subaru?'" (Page.65). That's only one example, another one is: "Think about it. For almost seventeen years my mom hasn't come back here. Why?' 'It's cold,' Devyn says. 'It's creepy," Issie adds." (Page.263).
    With dialogue like that, how can you not love a book like this? The story brings tons of suspense too, especially in a scene where pixies come after Zara. I really felt what she felt, I was so in tuned with her it was unbelievable. Some of the plot twists are easy to guess, but others you won't see coming. The ending leaves you wanting more, but isn't a cliffhanger. And the only real thing that bothered me about this book is at first it felt very unrealistic of how Zara handle the knowledge of pixies. But once getting into the story more, you start to understand why she acts like that and becomes pretty real.
    Another intriguing fact is that each chapter had a phobia name on it!! It was so cool, did you know you can have a phobia of school? or a phobia of girls? or phobia of pixies *O.K Zara made that one up!!!*.
    I enjoyed this story so much and am so excited to read Captivate (the sequel). This is a must read, Carrie Jones did a excellent job and I praise her for that.
