PANIC by 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. 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.

Adults?No

Comments: This plot was very interesting. To tell you the truth I had a hard time putting this book down, but only because I was mortified to the point of enthrallment 80% of the time. It just talked about the yuck-of-all-yuck that teenage-dom can come up with. I feel like this is a warning to mothers, not a entertainment for teenagers book. Still it was well written and was true to its self throughout. I really liked Heather's character she was brave and strong. I like this author. Wish she would clean up her characters language.
