Need. (but not Captivate. Entice. Endure.)

Zara has felt hollow inside since the day her stepfather died. Worried about Zara's lack of emotion and passion for life, Zara's mother sends her from her home in Charleston to her grandmother's home in rural Maine. The day before she arrives, a boy disappears. A week or so after, another boy goes missing. And Zara starts hearing someone calling her name "Zara. Come to me." Always when she's alone, usually near the woods. As Zara makes new friends and finds a new romance, her hollow feelings subside and real emotion returns. But with the return of emotion comes fear, as the voice continues to call and strange things begin to invade her life.

Zara is a character for the 21st century. She's passionate about human rights and is involved with charities and helping others. She believes in peace and human kindness and crusades for her beliefs. But now that it's Zara in trouble, who will crusade for her?

If you've read Need and enjoyed it, let me know what you think of the sequels: Captivate, Entice, and Endure!

Jones, Carrie. Need. New York: Bloomsbury, 2009. 4 stars.
