Review: Panic

Panic coverAuteur: Lauren Oliver
Pagina’s: 408
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary.
Publicatie: Hodder & Stoughton, Maart 2014
Rating:
4 Eikels

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. (Beschrijving Goodreads)

Omdat ik maar een week ga, heb ik besloten om niet al te veel boeken mee te nemen. Hieronder zal ik laten zien welke boeken ik wel mee ga nemen.

It is the rule of the Wilds. You must be bigger, and stronger, and tougher. A coldness radiates through me, a solid wall that is growing, piece by piece, in my chest. He doesn’t love me.

You must hurt, or be hurt.

Lena can build the walls, but what if there’s no one left to take them down? The powerful, heartbreaking conclusion to one of the most eagerly awaited and talked-about series is here.
