All I Need by Rebecca Carrigan
"My dreams . . . they really scare me. Sometimes, I hold my breath and I know you're the only one who can wake me." - Sophie
He thought he was alone in the world until he met her. But has she come into his life too late? Fate has already decided Nate's path and will take everything from him. Do you believe in angels? And if so, are they a blessing or a tragic being left over from a life not lived? This realistic life story of love and dreams will reach into your soul and make you think about how to live out the rest of your life.
All I need was a decently good book. It was confusing at first with switching points of view from when Nate was alive to when he became Sophie's guardian angel. I figured out what was going on a few chapters after it happened, and everything made sense then. The grammar, punctuation, and spelling was horrid. The editor didn't do a good job editing. I found at least one mistake on every page, which made it hard to read the book and understand the context sometimes. (Note: The author got a new editor and once they are finished editing the book, there will be a second printing of the book released without any editing mistakes.) The cover was beautiful. I liked how the white feathers looked on the black background. The cherry blossoms also added a nice touch. I liked most of the characters. The Natalie and Julie fighting was funny at first, but then it got kind of annoying. Also, the last fight wasn't explained very well. My favorite character was Mark. I liked his silly and care-free attitude. Even though he was a minor character, I enjoyed him immensely. I felt bad for Sophie because of all the things she went through. Just when she was becoming happy, something would happen and she would get depressed again. Nate has become my new book boyfriend. He stayed by Sophie's side and protected her and loved her, even though it was forbidden. I'm curious what will happen in book two now that Serena has made a reappearance.
I give All I Need: 3/5.
