Soon to be a major Amazon Prime Video series.

An utterly gripping thriller from bestselling author 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, 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.

In this gritty, spellbinding novel, bestselling author Lauren Oliver delivers a gripping narrative of friendship, courage, survival, and hope.

Teen fiction but with a twist, smart, inventive, well imagined, acutely observed... This is a book which really makes you think long and hard about who we are and what drives us to do what we do. Throw in a little peer pressure and a lot of danger, and it's really a first class read.
A wholly believable and compulsively readable tale of friendship, loyalty, survival, and courage.
Oliver makes a white-knuckle return to realism that will have readers up until the wee hours.

We almost missed our stop on the bus because we were so engrossed. Lena is a strong multi-faceted character and the future society in which she exists genuinely terrifying... A thoughtful, exciting and moving story that reminds us just how important love is. Devour it, then go and give all your friends a big hug.'
