Lauren Oliver, author of the much acclaimed Delirium series, is coming out with another book next year (March 2014). Even though I was sorely disappointed in Requiem (I still have nightmares) I am excited to read Panic. Delirium and Pandemonium were incredible so I am hoping that Panic follows in those books' footsteps.
Without further ado here is Panic's Summary, enjoy:
From New York Times bestselling author Lauren Oliver comes an extraordinary novel of fear, friendship, courage, and hope.
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.
Already optioned by Universal Pictures in a major deal, this gritty, spellbinding novel captures both the raw energy of fear mixed with excitement, as well as the aching need to find a place to belong.
I guess the Movie industry is taking all they can get uh? Everybody is hoping to make it big with the next YA franchise. You know which book I would enjoy if it were made into a movie? The Originals by Cat Patrick. It had movie potential, the plot was pretty cool and it was different. But I don't see that happening any time soon. The summary also reminds me a bit of The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau. It sounds interesting, but if anything I am in for Lauren Oliver's writing style. We'll see how it turns out but I have high hopes for this one!
