Waiting on Wednesday: Panic

Waiting on Wednesday's is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Lauren Oliver

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.

Why I Can't Wait: I have read all of Lauren Oliver's YA books and I have loved them all. I can't wait to add this one to the list! And seriously this cover is amazing!


  1. I want to get my hands on this as well :) I've read Delirium and Before I fall and enjoyed them! Great pick :)

    1. Thanks! I really liked Delirium and Before I Fall as well.

  2. I didn't like Delirium that much, but I think I'll give this one a try. It sounds good!

    1. That's too bad, I thought it was really good. I hope this one is better for you!

  3. Thanks for letting us know about this book, I enjoyed the Delirium books too and this one sounds good. It sort of reminds me of Divergent in a way? Anyway I've added it to my TR pile :)
