Waiting on Wednesday (58)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on Panic by Lauren Oliver (3/4/14):
Description on Goodreads:
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.
Why I’m Waiting:
Oh man. Lauren Oliver. Enough said. This is an author I give full props to. Seriously. Everything she writes blows me away. She can never stop writing. I will probably be out buying all of her books the day they come out. And this one sounds so promising. I want to know so much more about Panic than that description is telling me. I’m hooked on the story when I don’t even know exactly what it’s about yet, and that’s saying something.
What are you waiting on this week?
