I was looking at the 2016 Quick Pick for Reluctant Readers list and noticed that some of the books listed have YouTube links attached to them; the links lead to book trailers! I haven’t read any of Joelle Charbonneau’s books (yet) and didn’t realize she had a new one release this fall. I know Need and her other books will appeal to my students so I need to them ASAP!
Summary (From Goodreads):
What do you really need?
One by one, the teens in Nottawa, Wisconsin, join the newest, hottest networking site and answer one question: What do you need? A new iPhone? Backstage passes to a concert? In exchange for a seemingly minor task, the NEED site will fulfill your request. Everyone is doing it. So why shouldn’t you?
Kaylee Dunham knows what she needs—a kidney for her sick brother. She doesn’t believe a social networking site can help, but it couldn’t hurt to try.
Or could it?
After making her request, Kaylee starts to realize the price that will have to be paid for her need to be met. The demands the site makes on users in exchange for their desires are escalating, and so is the body count. Will Kaylee be able to unravel the mystery of who created the NEED network before it destroys them all?
