What does sixty thousand dollars mean to you? A car? A choice at college? A way to pay debts? For Heather it means escape from her small-town life and neglectful mother, so she enters “Panic” a game of dares played by high school leavers. Dodge enters too but for him it’s all about revenge, though the money would really help his crippled sister. As the dares get more and more dangerous the characters lose the perspective of a game played for cash and it becomes about surviving and proving your worth. The thrilling moments of physical danger are surrounded by plenty of teenage angst, bitter rivalries, the agony of first love and lots of family drama. It is not connected to Lauren Oliver’s wonderful Delirium trilogy but does share the characteristics of a teen novel with adult appeal.

If you like Lauren Oliver you might also like to read books by Scott K. Andrews, Peyton Marshall and Julianna Baggott.

Synopsis

Panic by Lauren Oliver

An utterly gripping thriller from bestselling author Lauren Oliver. 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, 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. In this gritty, spellbinding novel, bestselling author Lauren Oliver delivers a gripping narrative of friendship, courage, survival, and hope.
