There's not even a summary yet, but I loved Black City, I'll be reading Phoenix shortly, and just... that cover. So shiny and pretty. I need this book to be out now.
Panic, by Lauren Oliver
Expected publication date: March 14th, 2014
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.
A new Lauren Oliver (one of my top five all-time favourite authors) dystopia? Sign me up! I've been reading reviews from the lucky few who've read ARCs and they all say, yes, that blurb screams TGH, but it is nothing like it. So I have my hopes really really up for this one.
