Charlotte's best friend thinks Charlotte is psychic. Her boyfriend thinks she might be 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. At seventeen, Charlotte finds the Need has virtually taken over her life, and it's becoming harder and harder to hide these compulsions-if anyone knew about it, they would think she was crazy. There have been other Forgottens, but they're gone - disappeared in a burst of light and erased from the memories of everyone whose lives they touched. This is the fate that awaits Charlotte. As everyone important in her life slowly begins to forget her, Charlotte has to decide if she'll fight the Need in order to remain herself - no matter how dark the consequences.

Review quote

"Although the message of this exquisite fantasy is deeply and spiritually profound, the author manages to convey it without sounding preachy or pretentious...The ending is beautiful, although bittersweet. A unique take on the age-old struggle of good vs. evil." -- School Library Journal "A gripping supernatural romance... An imaginative twist on the timeless battle between dark and light." -- Kirkus Reviews "A beautiful, poignant, and gripping tale of love and sacrifice." -- Carrie Ryan, New York Times bestselling author of THE FOREST OF HANDS AND TEETH "A Need So Beautiful is equal parts haunting mystery, edge-of-your-seat thrill ride, and epic love story. Charlotte's story captured me-and still hasn't let me go!" -- Kimberly Derting, author of THE BODY FINDER
