“Waiting on” Wednesday: Panic by Lauren Oliver

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week I’m waiting on:

Panic by Lauren Oliver

Expected Publication: March 4th 2014

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.

Synopsis from goodreads.com

I admit, I haven’t read anything by Lauren Oliver yet, but this sounds like such an amazing young-adult dystopian novel, plus it has a fantastic cover, so I can’t wait to get it on my hands!!!

Sad thing is, we have to wait such a long time until it’s publication date! 😦

  1. I’ve got this on my wishlist as well! I’ve only read one Lauren Oliver novel, but I am looking forward to reading more. She writes dystopian VERY well!

  2. All the novels I’ve read by Lauren Oliver thus far have been fantastic, so I’m really looking forward to this one! While you wait, you should read the Deilirium series (a dystopia about a society that treats love as a disease and “cures” people of it on their eighteenth birthdays) and Before I Fall, which was just beautiful in every way.
