Need by Joelle Charbonneau
This ought to be popular with teens but I didn't find it as compelling as The Testing, Charbonneau's first book. Although NEED and the person/people behind it are evil, I think there were a few missed opportunities. For instance, I was sure that the reason Kaylee appeared to be being set up for the first death was because that girl would turn out to be a match for a kidney donor. Still, the story moved quickly and the mystery of who was to blame had a decent number of hints spread throughout to give the reader a fair chance of guessing before the reveal.
