Panic
by Lauren Oliver

Goodreads synopsis:
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.

I am a huge Lauren Oliver fan, and I'm so sad that the Delirium trilogy has finally come to an end ... but ... I am so excited about this! It sounds like a really interesting concept, and I can't wait to read it and find out more about the game, and what it involves - and of course, what Dodge's secret is!
Panic doesn't come out in the US until March, so I'm guessing it will be about the same time in the UK - and that is a ridiculously long wait, but I'm confident it will be worth it!

Are you excited about Panic? Let me know why in the comments :)

I think this sounds really amazing-though Delirium wasn't my favorite read, Before I Fall was fantastic so if I click with the concept for this one, I'm hoping for another amazing read!
