If there's one author who is a constant source of inspiration to me, that's Lauren. I just adore her beautiful prose, her way with words. Every time I finish her books, I want more, and it's like a friend has abandoned me. So you can imagine how happy I am about PANIC.
Here's what Goodreads says it's about:
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.
As always, I'll be buying the Kindle edition, 'cause I don't want to wait three months to get the book shipped to me in Argentina. I need to read this nau.
Run along, Little Olives, and strip the shelves clean of this awesome book!
