~ Waiting on Wednesday (WoW) is a weekly meme post hosted by: Jill from Breaking the Spine that showcases not-yet-released books that I'm eagerly awaiting to read! ~
I'm waiting for:
Release Date: March 4th, 2014
Genre(s): YA Dystopia
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 am I waiting?
I am terribly intrigued by Panic I really want to know what the competition is all about. In a boring town (sounds like where I live) seniors play a game that everyone has a stake in. The story sounds slightly familiar with teenage competitors—but there are secrets and motivations as to why seniors are playing in "Panic". I am always compelled by mysterious plots, driven characters, and surprises so I'm going to check this one out once it releases. Since Lauren Oliver also wrote the hugely popular YA science fiction trilogy Delirium I'm looking forward to this new novel that has me already asking so many questions!
