Waiting on Wednesday - 147

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine for bloggers and readers to see what new books are coming out soon.

Panic by Lauren Oliver

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. (from GoodReads)

I think Lauren Oliver is a fantastic writer, so of course I'm going to read everything she publishes. It doesn't hurt that this book sounds so interesting! I'm so curious as to what "Panic" is! Panic will be released March 4, 2014.

This is a contemporary, which is interesting since she's done one before with Before I Fall, but this seems to have a totally different feel. I'm so excited to read Panic!
