Initial thoughts: With PANIC, Lauren Oliver dives back into the gritty realistic YA genre and does so with quite a splash. Thrilling, captivating, and fascinating, PANIC delves into a dangerous game where participants are willing to do whatever it takes to take home an impressive monetary prize. Friendships are tested, sides are chosen, and manipulation is fair game. But even more, this story portrays various familial circumstances, both heartwarming and heartbreaking. While some of the connections - familial, friendship, romantic - flicker out and fade away, others burn brighter with each passing page. PANIC is an outstanding story that will keep you up late at night, anxious, excited, and thoroughly captivated. (Rating around a 4.5 out of 5)
