Summary

A Publishers Weekly Pick of the Week, March 2014

A March 2014 LibraryReads Pick

From New York Times bestselling author Lauren Oliver comes an extraordinary novel of fear, friendship, courage, and hope that Kirkus Reviews says "will have readers up until the wee hours," School Library Journal raves is "fast-paced and captivating," and E. Lockhart, author of We Were Liars, calls "a thrill a minute."

Panic began as so many things do in Carp, a poor town of twelve thousand 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. 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Oliver makes a white-knuckle return to realism that will have readers up until the wee hours.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Fantastic! Oliver has a unique talent for creating multifaceted, complex characters who will hook readers. She captures the hopeless dynamic of a struggling town while keeping the story tense and exciting. A gritty and suspenseful stand-alone that won’t disappoint.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
“Oliver’s novel is a wholly believable and compulsively readable tale of friendship, loyalty, survival, and courage.” Booklist
