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.

I absolutely loved Lauren Oliver's Delirium trilogy and I quite liked her novel Before I Fall, so when I saw that she was writing a new book, I got very excited. Reading the blurb made me very interested in this book, and the whole time I was thinking: What exactly is Panic and why is it so high-stakes? And how far are a bunch of teenagers willing to go for some game? It's always refreshing to see a novel stand out among the crowd of other YA books, and Lauren Oliver has sure done that in the past. My interest has been piqued for Panic and I'm eagerly awaiting its release next year!
