Waiting on Wednesday: “Panic” by Lauren Oliver

 “Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that shines a spotlight on upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Panic began as so many things do in Carp, a dead-end town of 12,000 people in the middle of nowhere: because it was summer, and there was nothing else to do.

Heather never thought she would compete in Panic, a legendary game played by graduating seniors, where the stakes are high and the payoff is even higher. She’d never thought of herself as fearless, the kind of person who would fight to stand out. But when she finds something, and someone, to fight for, she will discover that she is braver than she ever thought.

Dodge has never been afraid of Panic. His secret will fuel him, and get him all the way through the game, he’s sure of it. But what he doesn’t know is that he’s not the only one with a secret. Everyone has something to play for.

For Heather and Dodge, the game will bring new alliances, unexpected revelations, and the possibility of first love for each of them—and the knowledge that sometimes the very things we fear are those we need the most.

When I heard Lauren had another novel coming out, I was SO EXCITED. Lauren is one of my favourite authors and I don’t know how I missed this one! Such a beautiful cover, and even more enthralling premise…this one is going right on my TBR.
Seriously waiting on this one. Want it!
Release Date: March 4th, 2014 by Harper Collins

  1. If this one isn't a winner, me and Oliver are breaking up. BUT it sounds so good, so I'm hopeful 🙂

  2. I'm really excited about Panic, too. I'm sort of terrified of finishing the Pandemonium series. To the point that I preordered Requiem and it's been collecting dust on my shelves since release day. So Panic will provide excellent procrastination. I got a copy from Edelweiss and I cannot wait to dig in. Great pick!
