Waiting on Wednesday - Panic by Lauren Oliver

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine,  that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating or books that are in our TBR pile.  This week’s “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is




Summary (by Goodreads)

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.

Ahhh..I love Lauren Oliver.  She was one of the first YA authors who really grabbed me and made me hang onto this genre as an adult reader.  Can't wait for this to come out!

  1. This one is new to me, interesting pick - the summary reminds me a bit of a Hunger Games feel. I actually haven't read anything by Lauren Oliver - guess I'll have to check her out. Thanks for sharing!
