Waiting in Wednesday: Panic by Lauren Oliver






Waiting on Wednesday is my weekly post where I obsess over the shiny new books  I cannot wait to read!




This week I'm waiting on... Panic by Lauren Oliver



What they say: 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.


  • Panic is due for publication on March 4th 2014 by HarperCollins.

Why I'm waiting on Panic:

  1. A dangerous game? Sounds like a mixture of Battle Royal/THG meets the Triwizard tournament without the magic.
  2. Lauren Oliver writes angst SO well!
  3. The entire premise sounds really clever!
