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.
Hardcover, 416 pages
Expected publication: March 4th 2014 by HarperCollinsPre-Order here.
So. I had this scheduled for today, and while I am excited about the book, I won't be reading it for several months. I got auto-approved on Edelweiss, so I got to download Panic :) Then I tried to read it, and I did not like it very much :( I will try again, though, which is why this is still a WoW pick for me. Might wait until my hardcover arrives in March, though :) I did enjoy Liesl & Po by Lauren a whole lot.
What are you waiting for?
I am excited for this one too. Hope you get to read it soon!ReplyDelete

Oh I'm sorry you didn't get into it when you started! I'm really excited for this but yeah I won't read it until Jan I think. Thank god for auto-approvals, right? :DReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by, Carina :)
Hokay. Hoping that Panic will be better than her Delirium series. Whelp.ReplyDelete
I downloaded it too. Hope I get a chance soon to try it. Hope you like it when you pick it up again. Sometimes that happens.ReplyDelete
I'm looking forward to this one! My mom wasn't a huge fan (she stopped about halfway through for now), but I'm hoping I can get in to it.ReplyDelete
I like the cover and the story sounds interesting. Sorry it wasn't an instant hit for you. Maybe the next time you pick it up it will be better. :)ReplyDelete
I hop you end up liking it! I adore Oliver's Before I Fall but Liesl and Po is a close second favorite.ReplyDelete
