Panic by Lauren Oliver*****

Panic is about Heather and Dodge. They are competing in a game called Panic that brings out fear in the bravest people. They go though insane challenges, and are both fighting for a better life. Heather, to get her sister away from her mother. Dodge, to avenge his sister losing her legs. Can these two competitors team up and beat the rest?

I really liked how both the characters were desperate enough to risk their life to better siblings. Heather put a gun to her head and pulled the trigger, all for the sixty-seven thousand dollars to get away from her mother. I think that this book has a very weird sense of desperation to it (the characters). I really like this book, and I think that high school students will too.
